    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.

    When my twin nieces were about 5 they visited their other aunt at the hospital where she worked. The emergency room was undergoing renovations and it was all torn up. Allie looked around, put one hand on her hip and asked "Who made this mess?"

    When my daughter Meghan was about 8, she wanted to go to a friend's house. I had a few chores for her to do before she could go. Apparently she thought the list was excessive because she went up to her room, fixed a little apron and made a name tag that said "Meg-arella".

    my great nephew Jackson (2) was settling down to read with mama before bed. Suddenly boom boom it was a big thunder storm. Something fall down..mama check.. no mama said that is the thunder in the sky. Lets check, they went to the window and watched for a bit, then mama said lets read some more and listen for the thunder again. A few minutes later there hadn't been a sound. Mama, jackson said, the dunder flew away. soooooo cute.

    At least you didn't scar your children like my Mom did. She told me a similar story.
    My oldest brother was delivered by the stork
    My second oldest brother was found in a cabbage patch
    and I was found under a rock...and I'm lucky she found me when she did or I'd be a pile of goo by now.
    I was so scarred!!! (we laugh hysterically about it now!)

    Well; just need to add one more funny. We live on a dairy farm with multiple cats and kittens. Our daughter had a friend over from town and they were conversing about whether the kitten they were playing with was boy or girl. My daughter piped up and said lets take it to my Dad he can tell by holding it up and looking at the bottoms of their feet !!

    I grounded my son today from all of the "electronic" games in the house (our kitten was sleeping on my lap and he decided to get revenge for her scratching him earlier. Snuck up and flicked her on the nose! Poor thing is only 8 or 9 weeks old so for being mean he got grounded.) We went and got lunch for us and my mom. Went to her house to eat it. I let her know he was grounded, a little bit passes and he asks her "Meemaw, can I play the wii?" She said "no, your grounded remember." He says "Just make my mom go home I won't tell her!" If that wasn't bad enough when she still said no he went to take a breath and before he could speak I piped in and said "Your not going to your NanNan's or Grandma Jodie's either." To which we got " Aw Man, someone around here needs to let me play some games."

    I am loving this. Keep them comming.

    I remembered as I was reading that when DD was about 6 or so we told her that she was a troll and we found her under a bridge. She had a green jewel in her navel and when she was old enough we would give it to her. Well when she turned 18 I found a little mint box that had a jewel in the top. i wrapped it up and took it to her. At the time she had a team at the Special Olympics. We were in her room with her asst coach and a few other friends and I handed her the box and said, "Before you open this honey I want you to know we could not love you more if you were our own child." At which point her assistant coach almost droped his eyes right out of his head. She just said, "Oh brother. Here we go" When she opened the box and saw the jewel was pink she said, "I thought the jewel was green." So I told her "We didn't know that when the jewel thought you were ready to receive it then it turns to your favorite color." We still call her a troll sometimes. LOL

    Don't know whose kid she was, but one time in a crowded mall rest room, a cute 5 year old stood with her mother, looking around at all the messy paper on the floor. She put her hands on where her hips would one day be, sighed, shook her head sadly and said "They just don't make bathrooms like they used to."

    Everyone laughed and left in a much better mood after that little darling came up with that.

    I was at work and my son ran to Grandma's house in tears.
    "Grandma, Grandma. I got bit by a bee!"
    "Where did the bee bite you?"
    "On 2nd base."

    My daughter is 2. We were at the zoo and she saw a peacock for the first time. She ran up screaming, "it's a chicken butterfly!!"

    When my daughter was 4, she had a mop of red hair. Apparently she grew tired of everyone asking her where her hair came from, as the next person who asked that got the reply, "It grew out of my head."

    all so funny

    when our youngest daughter was about 3 yrs old she got up an came running into the den where i was at and she said," momma I can fly" to which I said,"uh no honey you cannot". she gave me this look of who do you think you are and off she went. The next thing I hear is a big thud and I took off running to see what she was doing. There she was lying on the dinning room floor, she looked up at me and said," momma I flapped my arms like this ( she moved her arms up and down like they were wings) but I did not fly. she was so upset poor thing had a dream an she was flying so she just knew she could.

    OMG these stories are too too funny and they remind me of things my DD did. Once she had a cold and we went to the Dr. She was about 13. We were in the office and the Dr. came in and looked at her really seriously, he had no sense of humor, and asked her, "what is comming out of your nose?" She looked at me as if to say, "Is he serious?!?!?!" and then she turned to him and said, "SNOT!!!!!" I thought I would fall off the chair I was laughing so hard!!! he was NOT amused.

    When my son was almost 4 we went shopping at K-Mart with my Mom and 8 yrold sister. Another child was having a screaming fit In a very loud and serious voice he said ''If that was my kid he'd be flipped over a knee'' He beat Gramma to the punch line The little screamer shut right up tho As Art Linkletter always said "Kids say the darndest things'
