One day after worked I picked up my grandsons to spend the weekend with us. My DH usually picked them up so on the way to my house the youngest boy about 7 yo then asked where Pawpaw was and I told him he was on the way to our house.

I turned into the subdivision when all of a sudden he says 'Great.. you are taking a haircut home so we can beat Pawpaw'. My DH usually took them a different way and he thought we were taking a shortcut.

Same GS.
We go to a flea market in FL in Nov. I remarked how many 'snow birds' there were at the flea market. About that time we hear a voice from the backseat.. 'Look Grannie here comes 2 more' as he pointed upwards at 2 seagulls flying overhead.

Default Kids do say the darndest' things

Christmas and shopping for a tree. Pat had a habit of standing in the car and hugging the front seat from the rear. We were driving about and suddenly there was a sign "Xmas trees for sale - see the three little pigs and the wolf". I commented to Sherry and Pat from the rear says: "Can we go mommy" -- We were sort of in hurry to get home and changed and to a friends house so Sherry said: "No Honey we don't have enough time". Pat after thinking a bit responded: "If I were the Mommy and Daddy I'd let you see the three little pigs". Yep-- we stopped!

A couple of years ago when my then 6 year old granddaughter learned that her grandfather and I were going to retire to Kentucky, she came into the kitchen one morning looking very worried and asked me, "Grandma, do people in Kentucky speak English?" The poor girl thought we were moving to a foreign country.

OK not my grand child my actual son. When he was 5 he was sitting on Santa's lap at the mall. He whispered in Santa's ear, and Santa started laughing. He wouldn't tell us what he wanted for Christmas, only Santa. So we asked Santa, the young parents we were. Santa said that: "He wants a big red enamel Urinal installed in his wall in his room like they had at some McDonald's Restaurant he saw. Then he won't have to go all the way to the bathroom."

Needless to say,he did not get a unrinal from Santa.

You know Zarathu -- its hard to believe - but I will. Even at that I would have saved hundreds from Christmas to Christmas if I bought a Urinal for each of my kids. I guess I should have brought them to McDonalds more often?

Wnen my grand daughter was about 3 and her parents were preparing for a trip to take her to Disney World and they were going to fly, she asked them how "Disney World" stayed "up there". I guess she didn't know that the plane would "land" in Florida. To her it was some where up there in the sky.
