Kids say the funniest things, as these seven grandparents found out first hand.
- 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!”
- 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?”
- 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!”
- 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.”
- 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!”
- 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.”
- 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.”
