Out of the mouths of babes

I don't know about you, but when my girls were really young they were a handful. But handful or not I loved them to death, especially on those times when they were posed a question. You know I would laugh so hard sometimes my sides would hurt.
And I quickly learned that if I didn't want the truth, then by golly, NEVER ASK A KID. LOL
Sit back and enjoy.

Here are a few answers from a class of 8 year olds.
The question was "What is a Grandparent?"

1- Grandparents are people who have no kids of their own because they like other people's.

2- A Grandfather is a man Grandmother.

3- Grandparents don't have to do anything except be there when we come to see them, and they shouldn't play hard or run.

4- It is good if they drive us to the store and have lots of quarters for us.

5- When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leafs and caterpillars.
They show us and talk to us about the colors of the flowers and also why we shouldn't step on "cracks". Oh yeh, and they don't say "HURRY UP."

6- Usually Grandmothers are fat, but not too fat to tie your shoes. And they wear glasses and
funny underwears.

7- They can take their teeth and gums out.

8- They don't have to be smart.

9- Everybody should try to have a Grandmother, especially if you don't have a television, because they are the only grownup's who like to spend time with us.

10- They have to answer questions like " why isn't God married" and "how come dogs chase cats?"

11- When they read to us, they don't skip, and they don't mind if we want the same story over

12- They just know we should have snack-time before bedtime and they say prayers with us
every time, and kiss us even when we've been bad.

13- It's funny when they bend over, you hear gas leaks and they blame it on the dog.

AND last but not least

14- When a 6 year old was asked where her Grandmother lived she replyed
"Oh, she live at the airport. And when we want to see her we just go and get her.
Then when we're done haveing her visit, we take her back to the Airport."

I've read these a few times now and they still make me laugh.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Have a great day

Hey Sandy.

Good to see you're still out there. We've been missing you batches. Well at least 2 weeks isn't that long to wait, I have my fingers crossed for it to speed by quickly.


Glad you got a chuckle, I know I certainly did too.
