Don't we wish we had written down all the really cute and funny and shocking things our wonderful grandchildren say..

When my oldest grandson was four years old, we were anxiously awaiting the arrival of his brother or sister, and of course talked about it quite often..Great Grandma and Grampa (who were very religious) came to visit ..Michael was on the floor coloring..The conversation between the adults turned to the expected baby..Great Grandma leans down, places a loving hand on Michaels shoulder and says "Are you excited about your new brother or sister, sweetie"? Michael turned, looked her in the eye and said "I don't want to talk about the @#&*baby" That is one of my shockers

I don't have grandbabies. I am a mommy and I have worked with kids. One of my favorite stories ever came from the school I was working in. A sibling had come to a Christmas program we had. When he got home he walked around the house singing "The King is Exhausted forever exhausted on high...I will praise him". So so precious.

One time, while in elementary school, one of my grandsons got in trouble at school and they sent a note home. When his parents were scolding him for being so bad, he threw himself down on the floor and yelled " I CAN'T HELP IT IF YOU NEVER TAUGHT ME HOW TO BEHAVE!!!!!".. I immediately got up and ran out of the room so no one would see me laughing....

I was reading to my granddaughter Sophia, who is two and a half. I had read her 3 books. Then I said, "Read to me." She said, "Sit on my lap, Grandma."

My grandson Josh was being potty trained and when he would stay over at my house I would sit him on the potty and, when he was successful, I would say; "What a big boy Josh. Josh is such a big boy." Well, one day, while I was "going potty", Josh walked into the bathroom and immediately said; "What a big boy grandma. Grandma is a big boy." I laughed until it was a good thing I was already sitting on the potty. Josh is now 22 and, for some strange reason, doesn't find it funny when I tell this story.

I love this. You know, when I was little, I always thought; "Round yon Virgin" was "Round John Burgin."
