    I love to hear funny stories from when kids are little. I'll start.

    When my daughter was little she and her grandmother were talking about a friend of my MIL that was very old. DD said , "Gramma how did she get to be so old?" MIL said, "she has good family genes." DD looks pensive for a moment and says, "Are they Levi's?"


    Ok now your turn........ GO.

    When my youngest daughter was 4 or 5 maybe...she asked where babies came from....so since I felt that she was TOO young to know the truth...I told her a story. And this is the story I told her...

    Syndy (my oldest daughter)I found her behind a log and if I could remember what log it was, I probably would have taken her back, but I was never able to find that log.

    Tina, my middle daughter,I found her in the forest hiding in a cave and there was no one to take care of her so I took her home with me.

    And for you young lady, (Mistydawn) I found you in the cabbage patch taking a nap. And I thought you were so cute, I had to bring you home.

    She believed that story for a long long time and every so often she will mention this to me.

    I have a bunch but my middle daughter was the one who came up with the memorable ones.
    Like the night we came home and the tapes were pulled out of their cases in a pile on the floor. I asked her why she did that she said But I didn't the cat did. hmmm . ( we had no cat)
    or the time I looked up at her coming down the hall in her bathing suit (she was like 4) And I said Good grief you have such long legs. She looked at me and down at her legs and said Yep They go all the way to the floor! .
    She was very logical. lol

    When my daughter was just starting kindergarten she was asking about languages. She asked what language was spoken in Germany - I told her German, she asked about Norway - I told her Norwegian, etc......then she asked about Italy and I said Italian.....her response "Oh, I get it - and we live in the USA so we speak "U-S-Alien". We still chuckle about that, especially now that she's going into elementary education for her career and will undoubtedly run into those kind of comments daily.

    When my twin grandsons were about 8, they got into this kick of who was who and how old are they. You know, who is your mom, who is papa's dad? That sort of thing. One day Logan asked me how old I was. Being truthful, I told him "50". He got this funny look on his face and said, as if it were soooooo way out there, "You are not!" I said, "then how old do you think I am?" To which he said" 25". I said, "I'll take it!". Boy, I must really seem old to them now.

    My 6 year old grandson had a horrible nightmare about 2 years ago about a tornado and a hole in the floor where everyone started falling into. He has never forgotten this nightmare. He told my daughter a few nights ago that he never wanted to go to Disney Land, EVER! She was suprised and ask him why? He had just seen a commercial and at the end of the commerical they say "Where dreams really do come true!" ha ha! Bless his little heart!!!

    My daughter was about 3 and I was trying to teach my twin boys not to eat off each others plates. "Don't share" backfired on me one day when my brother was teasing my daughter and asked for some of her candy. She told him "my momma told me not to share!" He frequently mentions this and its now 16 years later. He calls it his favorite Manda-ism! Boy was I embarrassed at the time.

    when my grandson was 4 or 5 he would tell stories that would have some truth to them, but he would embellish it with big tales. Like... outside of our house the woods have sabertoothed tigers and dinosaurs that were nice to play with and would only hurt someone who didn't let him swim in the pool. (It was like 70 degrees outside, the pool water would have been 50!)

    One Sunday, my two GD's and I were visiting my Mother. We were trying to get in touch with another cousin. My oldest GD ran to the phone, picked up receiver and just stopped. "How do you use this phone?". This comming from a teenager. It was an old rotary phone. She had never seen a rotary phone before.
