    Smile Another cute quote from a pint sized fellow

    Just had to share this -

    Yesterday i was in a shop at a festival and darling little fellow was trying on a mask. He very obviously wanted it quite badly. The clincher was when he said "Dad, I can carry it on my face." Apparently he and his sister had been handing off purchases to the parents and had been told they weren't going to carry anything else for them. And yes, he got the mask.

    Come on, let's share other cute things you've overheard recently...

    My grandson just turned 1 and talks in complete sentences...only thing is they are in baby talk and you can't understand a word he says! The other day they were over at the house and his toys are stored in a plastic tub under the end table. He walks to the tub, puts 1 hand on it and 1 hand to it and mumbled a whole baby talk sentence while looking directly at his momma. It was plain to see he was asking for permission to get into the box (she had spent the day cleaning). She automatically told him it was ok to get his toys and he proceeded to pull the box out and play. We couldn't understand 1 word of what he said but he just KNEW we did!

    I was in the backyard just about a couple of hours ago with my four year old grandson. My daughter had bought him one of those baseball tees. He wanted me to hit it and I did, actually a lot harder than I intended. He said "Nice try Grandma!" They are too cute!

    My 2yr old GD was told her dad was going to put up her own little swing when he got home from work today and as soon as she saw him come in the door she said, "Daddy, let's go put up my teeny weeny tiny swing NOW!!!"

    I was watching my granddaughter at her house the other day. When mom came home she came over and hugged my leg and told me that I could come back and play her another day.

    Awwwwwwwwwww... I can't wait to have grandbabies! Well, since I don't, I'll tell you something cute I said as a child (that doesn't sound too vain, does it? LOL!). I wanted my Mother to buy me something (a toy of some sort... I think it was a troll) & I said to her "But it only costs one check"! Hey, maybe I could try that line on DH!

    When my 39 yr old son was just a few years old we were stopping to fill the car with gas. There were still stations that filled the tank for you but were quite often a penny more per gallon. I told him we were going to that station and have them fill it for the penny. After it was filled and I started to leave, he said " Mom, you didn't give him his penny."

    When my sons were about 6 and 7 or so, we were sitting at the dinner table and the older one said, "Mom, when's your birthday?" The younger one immediately piped in with, "Duh, it's the day she was born!" Kids are so funny - without even knowing it! He couldn't figure out why his answer cracked us up!! Another time, about the same ages, the younger one was mad at his brother who had locked him out of his room and was ignoring him. He slipped a very miss-spelled note under the door that said, "big whoppy do to you!"

    When I was a young child we were traveling from California to Minnesota. We had to stop for a border inspection. We had to open our camper as we were carrying oranges and they needed to inspect them. My youngest brother asked my mom "Why can't we bring oranges into another state?" and she explained about the insects. When the border patrol came back to the car my brother said to him "How to the insects know where the border is?" He just looked at him a walked away.

    My husband had passed away and my grandson was afraid of thunder and lightening. My daughter told him that it was grandpa playing the drums. One day while he was visiting it began to rain. He asked me "Why does grandpa have to play those drums?" I replied that that was the job God gave him. To which he replied, "Great, jobs in heaven too, I want the job of petting the kittens".

    When my son was young, we were at the store and he saw an Amish woman. He looked at me and said "Mom look a Pilgrim!"

    My DH is into metal detecting..and our grandson (age 5) loves to go with. So he gets on his dads cell phone, calls papas cell phone and told papa he would like to go metal reflect (calls it reflecting) with him today. He can come pick him up right now, he is ready. Then he adds in..if your good we can even go for ice cream after. lolol So then he turns to his dad and says, papas on his way, you better be ready or your staying home.

    I have alot of grandkids so I could write a book but it take a million yrs to remember them all. This morning my 6yr old was having a bad morning getting ready for school and his mom told him to go sit on his bed until he could calm down and get ready. He told her she was being a bad mommy. A few seconds later he came up and said he wanted money for school to buy snacks. She looked at him and said now you want money, I thought I was a bad mommy, he just looked at her and said well, can I have some. Then he started sucking up to get the money. I was laughing. I love the way kids think. Last yr at Christmas this same little boy came to my house about the time my oldest son and wife left and my DGS asked "What did Uncle Bud get you for Christmas GiGi" I told him nothing. He looked at me and said "Well, that sucks" It was all I could do but laugh. I explained that I was happy that they came to visit or when my kids call and I don't need to have presents to make me happy. He just had the most dumb foundest look on his face. I love grandkids and tell my kids all the time, if I could have skipped having kids and went straight to the grandkids I would have been so happy. I can't wait until my Greatgranddaughter is old enough to be so cute.

    My 4 year old Grandson is very close to his Grandpa. Grandpa is the "go to" person who fixes everything and who's favourite saying is " I can fix anything with duct tape." Recently, my Grandson's father was rear ended so the family car went to the body shop. When his Father announced that the car was all fixed, my little man replied " Did they fix it with duct tape ?" Gotta love it !

    My 5 yr. old granddaughter who calls me "fishin' Grandma" was here for the wk. end last wk. She was trying to make conversation with me & suddenly said "I really miss "fishin' Grandpa". I didn't have the heart to remind her that she was just barely born when he passed away. Trying to keep a straight face when I heard that was tough. We do talk about him though so he'll be a part of their history.

    my oldest granddaughter would get mad at her parents and tell them" you just sit there and think about that". the same thing her parents told her whenever she was naughty.
    my oldest daughter at age 4 told me her preschool teacher wouldnt let her bring home her "girlcroak". i spent a good 15-20 minutes trying to figure what that was . She finally got exasperated trying to explain and stated" you know,it scares the birds away". ahh,the light dawns---a SCARECROW!
    same daughter used to call cigarettes "kill-kills". out of the mouths of babes comes the truth.

    Cute story

    My friend owns a fabric store. A lady came in with her 4 year old DGD and they were browzing the fabric. The little girl chose a fat quarter. When they go to checkout, she puts her fat quarter on
    the counter with grandmother's purchases. Grandmother asks her to tell the owner what the fat
    quarter is for. She replies in a whispery voice, "its for my stash".

    I recently explained to one of our great granddaughters that we bought a birthday gift for her. She brightly responded, "How many?"

    When I was five and learning to ride my bike, I fell against the yard fence. Mother looked at my reddening face and said, "Uh hun! Don't loose you temper." I said as I was getting up, "I can't loose my temper!" "I done lost it!!!"

    I really enjoy reading these cute stories. When my grand daughter was about 4 she was visiting for the weekend and was looking at a picture of one of my sons that she had never met.. She asked me who it was and I told her that he was one of my babies. Several hours later my son drove up and started walking to the door. She came running into the kitchen yelling, "Grandma! Grandma! Your baby is here.

    My grandson Devon was about 4 and I called his dad Little Glen ( my son is 6'3") and this 4 yr old looked way up at his dad's face and then looked at me and said "He doesn't look so little to me!!" LOL He's called little Glen by the family sometimes because he is named after his dad. It is a nickname I have tried to drop but forget sometimes.

    My autistic DGS Zach is now 11 and he has provided a number of funny stories. Yesterday my DD his mom said he gave her a chore list he wrote for her for the day.(his dad does this alot) and it contained this list:

    Clean house
    Do the dishes
    Feed the pets
    Disguise the house as The Wiggles House

    He has been obsessed with the Wiggles since an early age and loves to pretend he is in the Wiggles house. At one time you couldn't trust him with crayons or markers as he drew a clock on the back of my recliner (that is where it is in the show) and he drew The Wiggles Show on my tile floor with markers and on my walls ( he did this at home too) This was his attempt to make the fantasy and his reality the same thing.

    When my granddaughter Rachel was 3 she was tired and cranky. Her parents came to pick her up about 10 at night and she was not wanting to go with them. But she is feisty not a fussy child.

    I said Rachel listen to me. I am your grandmother and you are my granddaughter and you have to listen to me!

    She looked at me and said sternly - I am YOUR grandmother and YOU are MY granddaughter and YOU have to listen to ME!

    LOL I asked her mom my DD if that is anything like my uncle is my grandfather or some such thing!!W


    When she was 5 she had to have blood drawn. It took her mom holding her -me holding her head and talking to her and 3 nurses to hold her down while the pediatrician drew the blood. She's not screaming or crying she is demanding we let her go right now!! When that didn't work she started demanding - Get my Daddy!! He won't let you do this to me!!!!!
