    My 16 year old granddaughter was entertaining her twin four year old sisters last week.
    She was playing a game where they got one point each for each game task completed.
    As they each won, she put a mark on their hand.
    Their Mom came in and saw the marks on their hands and jokingly said to my granddaughter "don't draw on my kids! smile

    The younger of the twins came back in the room, very serious, finger extended to issue a stern warning to her older sister.

    "Lola, I told you not to draw on mummies kids"!

    I cracked up! I can see her delivery in my mind. Head tilted looking up through her glasses, she is a riot! lol

      I have two grand-children now and as I watch and listen to them I find their little lives to be incredible.  My granddaughter is almost three and so smart; she recently came home from being in NJ for a week and as soon as she saw me she informed me that she was home and could now come over to "take me to the Park"!  She loves it there.

      This was ao sweet and adorable dont you just feel like saying awww or hugging them. I swear the kids can really lighten up your tough day and can bring a smile back at your face.

      My kiddo has just started with words, and my my the things that come out of her mouth leave us startled. As parents i always think now where did she pick that from. Every day seems unpredictable and fun.

    Haha...yes kids are hilarious. Just a minute ago my five month old was completely quiet and then out of no where she screamed louder than I could and then went back to being quiet. She also cracks up whenever my 16 month old comes near her.

    I remember my daughter when she was quite young, sitting in the back of the car.
    She puts her finger to her chin and says
    "I've got a good idea, but I don't know what it is yet."

    I was met at the door by one of the three year olds a couple of weeks before she turned four.
    "Hello Granpa, why are you here again?"
    I replied that I had come to see her, and her sisters and brother.

    She replied "Well Asha and me are big girls now, and we don't need a grandpa, so you can go home!"

      hee hee!!!!that is beyond adorable! smile

      when my son was a toddler, he always wanted to do things his parents did...if his father wore a blue shirt, he wanted to wear one too then he would pat his chest and say 'i am same-same like you, Daddy!'. he loved to go around the cocktail table and drink from your glass...one time i had a glass of Coca-Cola, which he had never had before, and before i could stop him, he picked it up and took a long drink then went "ahhh!", which was followed by the loudest burp you ever heard. i guess it stung his nose because he went from smiling to a look of pure fear and started crying sad

      poor little guy. when he first learned to flush the toilet, things started disappearing around the house, including two watches. one night i thought hmm who's flushing that toilet so much and i opened the door and there he was holding one of my pink foam curlers poised over the toilet so i knew he was flushing stuff down it. i asked if he had flushed mommy's watch down the toilet and he just put his lips together really firmly and didn't say a word. ater explaining why it wasn't a good idea to flush things like watches and stuff down the toilet, that was the end of that smile

        He sounds so much like Angus my 5 year old grandson! He has destroyed or lost every thing that he could gain access to up until recently! smile
        He is naughty, mischievous, very smart and adorable!
        Last month he got new glasses, though a tantrum and destroyed them an hour after getting them. He is the most loving older brother to the twins, and calls them "his girls."
        You know I reckon all kids are different. Some are "naughty" and some not so much. It does not seem to vary with sex so much as just child to child.
        I have this theory that they should be allowed to behave like Narcissus until they are about seven. They get to grow up to really be themselves! smile

          i agree with your theory!

          yes my son was a little explorer, always getting into something and he would always give you that innocent 'who, me?' look...he has no siblings but has always been very respectful and kind to others kids, especially ones younger than him. you sound like a wonderful grandpa and i know you were a great daddy! smile

    Okay, a quick one just for you Earnest!  When my youngest was 13 months old, I dressed him up with antlers and a red striped outfit.  I sang Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer to him for a total of 3 times.  Before I could begin the fourth time, he stopped me by putting up his hand in the air, and said "ssshhh".  He then stood up on the bed, started singing the song and began prancing like a reindeer.  It was one of the few times I actually caught him on video performing.  I wonder what his performance will be this year!

    Have a good day Earnest!  big_smile

    My four year old son had to have four teeth pulled, so they gave him Lorset.  The dentist helped me carry him to the car afterward because first, he couldn't move his legs for himself on account of the Lorset, and second, I was carrying his seven month old sister.  We get going down the road, and he suddenly sits up "MOMMY! I GOTTA POOP!"  I panic, wondering how I'm going to carry both him and the baby into a public restroom by myself, and prop him on the toilet without dropping the baby.  "Really?" I groaned.  "Ssshhh, shhh, ssshhh." He laughed between his swollen lips, "I'm just kidding."
    How could he know how much that would freak me out?  Where does a four year old get that kind of sense of humor?

    My significant other is my 3-year-old son's favorite victim in everything.

    Not long ago my SO was on the computer and playing some jazz fusion and my son was behind him dancing to the music. When he looked over, my son grinned at him and said, "I really like this song!" and continued dancing. Another song came on, and all of a sudden my son let out a blood-curdling scream. My SO about jumped out of his skin (and this is a guy that's never startled) and thought the kid must have hurt himself very badly somehow, especially since he's usually pretty quiet. He turned to look at him again, and my son said, "I REALLY like this song!" and continued dancing away.

    On another occasion, my son was upstairs playing and had called my SO repeatedly, asking him to come up and play with him. He finally gave in and headed up the stairs, and about halfway up he heard me son say to his teddy bear in a particularly evil, omen-esque voice..."Hehehe...he's on his way up!"

    My son is so much like his Mom that he just gets totally exasperated with my random behavior and allways pointed it out me.

    I come home from work and I allways give my wife alittle kiss and butt rub.(I know, I know but it's a joke with us) My son one day made this serious observation,"Mom, Dads a Butt rubber."

    I usally tease the drive-thru people, my wife and my son want me to stop.(not happening) Everytime I did it when my son was with me he would say, "I'm telling Mom! She told you to quit doing that!"

    My daughter who is 11 and I were taking a walk in Central park.  We had walk for the better part of an hour when a family passed us by. The father had a little girl on his shoulders.  My daughter smiled and ask me, 'Hey how come you don't carry me on your shoulders any more?"  I said, "I carried you enough when you were young."  I tried to get smart with her and asked her,  "How about me?  When are you going to carry Me?"  After a second or two she said, "I'll carry your casket."
    How's that for a comeback.

    Wow! The posts here are great. Make me wish I have my own kid. What we have right now is our niece and she's really something. She's just 3 and she's learning her alphabet. Her most funny letter is 'W', she says "bayoyo" smile.

    One time we were watching this kid show (a funny one) and the joke was that this little kid cried because he knows he'll get his way when he cries. My niece just looked at me and smiled like saying "hehehe, that's what I'll do Mommy, to get my own way" (she calls me mommy). Fat chance! smile

            Actually, me too. And then my husband (who's more strict than I am) just look at me as if saying "don't just stand there laughing! give her a reprimand for what she did." But it's really difficult when she looks at me wide-eyed as if saying she didn't do anything wrong. And then she'll suddenly hug me and tell me she loves me. These just melt my heart. smile

                Hope so. smile It's kind of frightening to be taking care of a kid not your own. Don't know which is more scary, caring for your own kid or caring for another person's kid.

    When my oldest daughter was quite under two years old, my husband and I were always on the road to somewhere, too busy to have more than maybe three or four homecooked meals together a week,  looking back it was horrible, but as we would drive through for fast food orders regularly, our little toddler made a great impression upon us that things would have to change... during one order at the drive through, we discussed what we wanted and my husband rolled down the window to pass the order on,  he forgot to order something and before I could say anything, my baby in her carseat in the back, leaned forward trying to reach the speaker and shouted  "and fries"!   We were absolutely shocked...most childrens first words are mummy or da da, now forever we have to live with the fact she spoke for the first time ordering her own french fries!

    My wife and I took our three grandchildren away for a week's holiday to give their parents a break. After a week of being run off our feet, doing the hundred and one activities that they wanted to do, Nanny and I were completely exhausted. My daughter rang me a few days after getting back and said, Lucy,(7) just asked me when is hell going to freeze over. I asked her why and she said, That's when Grandad is taking us away again.
