    I had Landon (4) with me at grocery store last week as we go in I remind him to use his manners. We save the cereal isle for last. So, we are going down the cereal isle and there were 2 ladies at the other end with their carts facing different directions blocking the isle. We picked out our cereal for 2 weeks. It takes us a while..we proceed to come up the isle toward the ladies. Pushing the buggy right up next to them Landon grins his cute face and sweetly says, "Scuse me, Please." They glance at us and keep right on with their conversation. He repeats it again, waits for movement, none. He repeats it again just a little louder. They look at us again, no movement. He repeats it again a little louder, they keep on talking like we are not even there...I am refraining from stepping in at this point because I want to see how he will handle the situation. Precious child looks up at me completely irritated, rolls his eyes and channels his father. He stomped his foot and says loud enough for everyone in the small store to hear, " GEEEZZ Lady, Would you move already? You are being so rude." I had to bite my lip to keep from laughing out loud. The one going the same way we were grabs her buggy and huffs off around the corner. As we pass by the other one she makes a remark under her breath about how he was the rude one and I allowed it. I smiled at her sweetly and said, "He is adorable isn't he? Thank you for moving. You have a Blessed day now." When we got to the registers the cashiers, having seen the whole altercation, were laughing so hard they were crying. One of them told me that the women had been standing there gossiping for almost an hour and had not moved for other shoppers either.

    Too funny. I would have loved to witness that. Is Landon the cute little boy in your Avatar?

    In our family when someone was sent outside for a "Treasure Hunt" it meant they were to pick up the dog poop!

    Not mine but a couple of weeks ago at our yard sale we had some old covered kitty litter boxes for sale. A tiny girl asked what they were and I said for the kitty to potty in when it can't go outside. She thought that was very gross - especially the part about us having to scoop it out! She said "EEEEUUUUWWWW Disgusting!" and walked out of the garage too LOL

    Sophia (DGD #1) is almost 11 now but around 2-3 was saying "leaving without telling" all the time. They lived in a split level and she was not supposed to go on any stairs without asking so that Mommy would know where she was when left playing for a bit. We went to a Christmas tree lighting and they all got out on the passenger side. I was driving, got out and went up several cars before cutting through to the street. I got a big chuckle out of Sophia hollering "someone's leaving without telling" for everyone to hear.

    I took My 5 yr old GS shopping for school clothes. In the dressing room he had tried on a pair of Jeans that fit and that he liked. I said that we would buy those, but that I thought "we should also try on the other 2 " pair we had picked out. He said "OK, Gramma, you go ahead, and I'll just wait outside for you!"

    Once while my youngest GD was at my house I was dressed for gardening in my white pants & shirt with sunflowers stamped on the front to hide stains and my straw hat with sunflowers. Emily came thru the house and said "Nana, you're so pretty". I of course said "Why thank you Emily". Then she said "You look just like a Scarecrow!"

    Don't have grandkids yet but my niece pulled this one on my Mother. Mandy was about 4, sitting on her grandmother's lap, playing with Grandma's watch. Finally she said "Your watch is so pretty. Can I have it when you get old?" Grandma said, "Sure, I guess you can have it." They rocked for a little while longer and then Mandy looked up innocently and said "You're really old now aren't you, Grandma?"

    Just before my 50th BD. we were at DS & DDIL's home in Utah. I mentioned on a ride that I couldn't believe that in 3 weeks I would be 50. My then 4 yr old DGD said How Old? And I repeated 50. She was rubbing my face and looking at me with those beautiful eyes and said " Boy Mammo, pretty soon you will be dead huh??? Boy did that make me feel old!!!

    yesterday I was babysitting my four year old Naomi. We had been working on memory verses for her AWANA class at church. Sitting on the arm of my chair and her arm behind my neck she asked, "Grammy, have you ever had an angel of the Lord tell you ,"Behold, you will have a child?" I laughed all day.

    This year is the first year that my now 33 month old granddaughter has understood the concept of trick of treating. After her Dad took her around the neighborhood, they came back to the house and Anna helped Mom hand out candy to kids. After a large group, Anna leaned up against the closed front door and said "This is a lot of work!"

    At 33 months, she's still not toilet trained but brave Mom decided to put her in panties anyway. Wet in no time. Mom: "Oh no, you peed in your Dora panties!" Anna: "That's OK, we have more."

    This brings back memories. When my GS was about 4 we stopped at a pizza place to have lunch with his mother. The place was really busy and so was the waitress. Josh decided he wanted more iced tea. We couldn't get the waitresses attention so finally his patience got the better of him and he stood up on the bench and asked very loudly "Can I have some more tea, please". I was almost ROFL and my daughter was mortified. Everyone in the restaurant thought it was funny except my daughter. And yes, he finally got his iced tea. We still joke about it today and my GS is 25 years old.

    We recently got new carpet in our family room and told the granddaughters (ages 3 and 5) no one can wear their shoes in there now. They have become the official "shoe patrol" at our house and don't care who it is...they've even toldus, our friends and their other grandpa "NO SHOES ON THE CARPET"!

    The other night Papa was talking to the 5 yr old and asked her how much she loved him...she held up her fingers about 4 inches apart...he was all happy and smiles and asked for a hug...then she said "but I love Nana this much" and held up both arms as wide apart as she could get them...we both busted up laughing. She's a Nana's girl for sure!

    My 4 year old GS isn't allowed to say farting in public, so I had him and his 2 yr. old sister at Walmart and she let a stinker. He proudly exclaimed "Elyse, your hiney is talking!" I thought the elderly lady in front of us would have a heart attack.

    This was about 20 years ago, my grandson had just gotten his first glasses. We stopped a store for his Mom to get a couple things and GS and I waited in the a/c car for her return. I asked about the new glasses and said to him,"can you see the mortar between the bricks in the storefront" his reply was." yes Grandma and I can see the wrinkles in your face too". Love the innocence and truthfulness of our little ones.
