my oldest step grandaughter has come out with a few good ones,she is 8 now but when she was about 3, her dad, and a friend of his had her in the carseat and took her to a town about 2 hrs away from where they live,when they arrived back home,she in her infinite wisdom put her hands on her hips and said , this isnt the f------- mall.
OY
we had her in the car around the same time and took her to the mall of america{they live in wisconsin} I asked the DH where do we park, and she pipes up, how do I know I dont dwive?
That sent us into peals of laughter, then she says
what? you think thats funny?
they have a dog,flower by name, she is a pitbull-Ainsley told us she was a pimple

When my granddaughter was four she went with me to my grandmothers grave, as we stood there, she looked over and spotted a holder for flowers, it was full with water, a few minutes past, and suddenly she said to me, does your grandma have her play clothes on? I said why? she said because there's lots of water down there, and she's going to get all dirty.


Same little one, came over to our house to visit, she decided she'd help fold clothes,
picking up a pair of my undies, she made several stabs at folding them, finally she started muttering to her self, I said what's wrong honey? she said grandma God could wear these.

WHAT IS A GRANDPARENT?

(taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds)

Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no


little children of their own. They like other people's.

A grandfather is a man & a grandmother is a lady!


Grandparents don't have to do anything except

be there when we come to see them. They are

so old they shouldn't play hard or run. It is good

if they drive us to the shops and give us money.

When they take us for walks, they slow down past

things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.

They show us and talk to us about the colors of the


flowers and also why we shouldn't step on 'cracks.'

They don'tsay,'Hurry up.'

Usually grandmothers are fat but not too fat to tie

your shoes.

They wear glassesand funny underwear.

They can take their teeth and gums out.


Grandparents don't have to be smart.

They have to answer questions like


'Why isn't God married?' and

'How come dogs chase cats?'

When they read to us, they don't skip. They don't


mind if we ask for the same story over again.

Everybody should try to have a grandmother,


especially if you don't have television because

they are the only grownups who like to spend

time with us.

They know we should have snack time before


bedtime and they say prayers with us and kiss

us even when we've acted bad.

A 6 YEAR OLD WAS ASKED WHERE HISGRANDMA

LIVED.

''OH,'' HE SAID,''SHE LIVES AT THE AIRPORT

AND WHEN WE WANT HER,WE JUST GO GET HER.

THEN WHEN WE'RE DONE HAVING HERVISIT,

WE TAKE HER BACK TO THE AIRPORT.''

GRANDPA IS THE SMARTEST MAN ON EARTH! HE

TEACHES MEGOOD THINGS BUT I DON'T GET TO

SEE HIM ENOUGH TO GET ASSMART AS HIM!

It's funny when they bend over, you hear gas


leaks and they blame the dog.'

When my son was in I think 7th grade they were making masks in Art Class. We were driving with my younger daughter also. Jason said he needed to go to the store and needed a tube a KY jelly to keep the mask from sticking to their faces while creating them. Well really I wasn't really sure what KY jelly was at the time. My daughter pipes up from the back and says, "what's KY jelly". And without skipping a beat my son says, "it's for vaginal dryness"
I almost ran off the road

Just for the heck of it, I asked my 8 year old grandson (who is sitting across the room with a gameboy or something) what KY jelly was..Without a blink of an eye or hesitation, he said "It's jelly made in Kentucky, Mamaw, probly strawberry"..I wonder how long that innocence is gonna last

I'm in between cuties in my house so I borrow others...
My nephew Mathew has been a card since the day he was born...last Christmas when he was 5, I was shaking my head over just HOW much stuff he got.
I turned to him and said "wow, Santa was real good to you this year!" His response?
"yeah and I was soooooooo bad too. Imagine what I'd get if I was good!"
I lost it!

I read this one in a magazine I get. This mom wrote in because her little 3 year old was out playing in the backyard when a skywriting plane flew overhead. The little boy ran into the house and said; "Mommy come quick. God is writing something to me and I can't read." I just thought that was one of the cutest things.
