Back to work and back-to-school is approaching and I wanted to spend some extra time with the little ones in my family.
We went to see the movie The Smurfs and they stayed all night with me, too.
Kids are funny and they say funny things. Here are a couple of funny remarks from our time together. I know, I know this is like making you look through the baby’s photo album, but you can handle it.
Looking at the posters outside the theater
Me: “If you guys were older, I’d take you to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes movie.”
Granddaughter (age 7): “I’m glad we’re not old enough, that movie looks too scary.
First born Grandson (age 11): “I would like it.”
The Next Morning
Me to all three: “Did you sleep well last night?”
Second born Grandson (age 9 until next month): “Yes, but when I woke up this morning I was confused and I thought, Am I grown up? Then I rolled over and saw (brother’s name) and I thought, no, I’m still little.”
I tried, really I did, to feed them good stuff for breakfast. When all choices were offered and they hadn't agreed to the choices, I buckled and offered--frozen waffles. All three wanted them.
First born grandson: “Grandma, you did a good job on the waffles. They are very good.”
Me: “All I did was put them in the toaster. The toaster did the rest.”
FBG: “Yeh, but you knew when to take them out.” (There's a deeper meaning here that I will contemplate.)
See, that wasn’t so painful was it?
The Smurf Movie? It was cute. I finally found out why there is only one girl Smurf. Do you know why?
