    Grandparents:
    1. She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful
    eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After
    she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said,
    "But Gramma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will
    probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the
    toilet paper good-bye...

    2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 62. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"

    3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into
    old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she
    heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience
    grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into
    their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left
    the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"

    4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own
    childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pond I had a swing
    made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our
    pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was
    wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd
    gotten to know you sooner!"

    5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you
    know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I
    said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied.

    6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word
    processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he
    asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."

    7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I
    decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it
    was. She would tell me and was always correct It was fun for me, so I
    continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I think
    you should try to figure out some of these, yourself!"

    8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from at
    tracting pesky insects.
    Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did,
    Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming
    after us with flashlights."

    9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm
    not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised, "mine says I'm 4 to 6."

    10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother,
    "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today."
    The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool.
    "That's interesting," she said, "how do you make babies?" "It's
    simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'I and add 'es'."

    11. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said
    a teacher.
    The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder
    pregnant."
    The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you
    know what pregnant means?" she asked.
    "Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child."

    12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one
    day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the
    fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the
    dog's duties. "They use him to keep crowds back," said one child. "No,"
    said another. "He's just for good luck." A third child brought the
    argument to a close."They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants."

    13 A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma 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 her visit, we take her back to the airport."

    14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things,
    but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him!

    15. My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over; you hear gas leaks, and they blame their dog.

    Thought I would add a true story of my own:
    The other night, hubby and I were in living room, and as I passed by his chair, on my way to the kitchen, he said, "Take this with you?"
    I took the glass he was holding out and turned towards the kitchen again, and he added, "...sensuous."
    I turned back, smiling, and he said, "sense-you-was going that way, anyway!!! :? "
    :D :D :D
