    "Out of the mouths of babes??"......

    As my son walked his 6 yr old daughter to the school bus, she said, "I like your white pants, Daddy."  He said, "Thanks honey, but they're not white."...She: "What color are they?"            Daddy: "They're khaki.".....she looked at his pants and then up at him and asked, "Oh...like Jake, from State Farm?"

    Here's my latest...Faith and her two friends were in the kitchen singing a song to Lily. I went to join in on the fun and I barely hit a high note when Faith's 5 year old friend looked at me and said "Step aside Granny, this isn't about you!" LOL! I about peed my pants. Faith picked up on that quickly, so I've heard it a few more times since then. LOL!

    When my son was a toddler he loved Fred Flintstone. I used to read him a book called, What Makes Fred Say Yabba-Dabba-Do? It had a push button that you'd hit on each page that said yabba-dabba-do. The book was all about things that made Fred happy, such as Dino greeting him at the door, a big brontosaurus burger, etc. At the end of each page, you were prompted to hit Fred's button.

    One day, when I'd finished reading to my son I wanted to know if he'd been paying attention so I asked him what makes Fred say "yabba-dabba-do"? His response: The button!

      HA!  That is a CLASSIC!  You must have known at that moment, you had a genius on your hands!  That's just too precious, Sha.  Can you imagine the little wheels in his head?  "Ah...duh, Mom......ya think I'm stupid or what?  It's the button!" LOL!

      Paula, that's probably exactly what he was thinking! I thought it was a riot. He took me completely by surprise!

    Not thinking anyone was listening, I let a loud one rip.  My three year old grand-daughter chimed in from another room....."Grandma, you're a Miss Farty Pants!"  That would be "Mrs. Farty Pants" to you, I said!

    My son-in-law was explaining something to my four year old grandson who turned to his father and said, "not now please.  It really doesn't interest me."

    I wrote a true story about my grandkids that got published.   My grandson was furious and said. That is our story, not yours grandma. They were highly insulted.

      I'm sure you know it is just a matter of time, Gram, until they realize how lucky and loved they are that Grandma would write a special story about them.  It seems we Grandmas have to wait a bit for them to appreciate the special meaning to so much.

    I tend to be pre-occupied and absent-minded. My granddaughter of 9 diagnosed my disorder and suggested a cure:  "Grandma, you think too much. You should talk more and think less."

      LMAO....Martie, THAT is hilarious! I'm sure you kept the secret to yourself!! I mean about how"sometimes" that's how we women get ourselves in trouble..."thinking less...talking more!"  How precious! Aren't you glad she sees you as a THINKER?  LOL.

    Oh Paula! It took me awhile to find this picture and then I clued into the fact that I could go to your HubPages profile pages to find it. They're adorable!

    My sister-in-law intended to prepare my nephew for the arrival of a sibling and told him she was carrying a baby. The child, who was about 3 at the time, couldn't see a baby so he asked where it was. My sister-in-law answered, "It's here in mommy's tummy." The lad absorbed that, then asked, "Open your mouth so I can see!"
