Grandma and her boys

This post is long so please sit and have a cup of tea

I just have to post this, I recieved this on an email and it is just so good, if you are a grandparent like me you should crease up and fall about laughing.

no. 11 is so close to home that I hope my grandchildren did not think this, with all our travelling.


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 we made from a tyre; it hung from a tree in our front garden. 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 known 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 computer. 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 colours yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what colour 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 holiday cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting 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. 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 the 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."

10. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire engine zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire engine 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.'

11. 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 and get her. then when her visit has finished, we take her back to the airport. '

12. 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!

Not so much now, but at one point I think my kids did think you lived at the airport!

These were all so funny. I have one to add from my grandson a few years ago. They had just moved to Illinois and I came for a visit. My 5 year old grandson and I were watching fireflys (something I had never seen before). I said, "Wouldn't it be funny if we had lights on our bums?" Without even thinking about it he replied, "Oh, Gwama you could light up the whole house!" I haven't stopped laughing about that yet.
