Friday Fun: Grandparent humor

This is an email I received from my mom. Some of them made me laugh so I thought I would share.


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) 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!'

4) 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.'

5) 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!'

6) When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation 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.'

7) 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.'

8) 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. 'Do you know what pregnant means?' she asked. 'Sure,' said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child.

9) 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.
