When grandkids make you giggle

Kids say the funniest things, as these seven grandparents found out first hand.

  1. I was in the bathroom, putting on my makeup, under the watchful eyes of my young granddaughter, as I’d done many times before. After I applied my lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, “But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper goodbye!”
  2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 80. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, “Did you start at one?”
  3. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. “We used to swim outside in the river. I had a swing made from a tyre, it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild blackberries and ate them.” The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, “I wish I’d gotten to know you sooner!”
  4. My granddaughter was diligently pounding away on her grandfather’s word processor. She told him she was writing a story. “What’s it about?” he asked. “I don’t know,” she replied. “I can’t read.”
  5. I didn’t know if my very young granddaughter had learned her colours yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what colour it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, “Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these colours yourself!”
  6. When my grandson Tim and I entered our holiday cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Tim whispered, “It’s no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with torches.”
  7. I was delivering my grandchildren back to their parents one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog’s duties. “They use him to keep crowds back,” said one child. “No,” said another. “He’s just for good luck.” A third child brought the argument to a close. “They use the dogs,” she said firmly, “to find the fire hydrants.”

What cracker has your grandkid come up with?
