    What funny things do you remember your children or grandchildren or any child saying?

    My grandchildren keep me smiling with some of the things they say. My granddaughter, Lily, who was about 3 or 4 at the time (5 now), was watching and dancing to a Keith Urban video of the song, "Love Somebody Like You" when she turned and looked at me and said, "Him is a nice boy!" Haha I said, "Him is!" My 3 year old grandson, Landon, who loves superheroes, asked his daddy who had been terrible sick, "Daddy, did you get the Kryptonite?" Aw...My oldest granddaughter, back a couple of years ago said, "Him (God) is working hard, Nanny!" after seeing "colored" pink clouds in the sky.

    I told my son to stop being facetious.
    He said he can't be that, because he doesn't even know what the word means.

    My grandson, who is now 6, was slow to potty train.  But, at age 3, he finally pooped in the potty and, boy, was he proud!  I answered the phone and it was my son who said, "Dad, Jake has something to tell you," and handed the phone to Jake.  He said, "Grampy, I just pooped in the potty...I went, unnnnnhhhh (straining sound) and it came out."  So, trying not to laugh out loud,  I told him how proud of him I was and how he was such a big boy, and generally lavished praise on him.  When I finally took a breath he jumped in with, "It looked like a six."

      Hahaha so funny! Thank you for sharing that gem there ...Bob. I too have a lot of "poop" related stories of my children and grandchildren's LOL.

      Funny thing...when I wrote my response to your question, I had a hubber score of 91.  When I just jumped on to read your comment, I noticed I was down to a 90.  HP must not see the humor in grand children's poop stores.

      If that boy knew what a 6 looked like it was time he was pooping in a potty! (Just kidding!) Some don't appreciate my humor and my husband said he already had 3 dates before he knew what a 6 looked like. (But that's another story!)

    Oh my oldest granddaughter, Nikki, was a real case. I think the funniest may have been one I was not there for though. My husband had her going for a buggy to put her in and they met up with a painted lady you might say at the buggies and it just thrilled Nikki. She said "Pawpaw I bet you wish you had a pretty girlfriend like that don't you?" She went on and on admiring all the red lipstick, rouge and nail polish. Well you know what a spot that put him in not able to say yes or no and he said the painted lady seemed to be wanting an answer too. lol
    It was one of those he wanted to kill her for but it has given so many laughs over the years with dozens of others!

      Faith Reaperposted 23 months agoin reply to this

      Hahaha Oh my, Jackie, she really did put Pawpaw in a predicament!  My daughter pulled a good one on me when she was very little while we were out shopping. I don't have enough room here to explain but it was humiliating to say the least.

      Love those grand kids of yours, they are just dolls. Hey I may work on a hub about this. I mean it would be fun trying and if it doesn't work out can't hurt anything huh? Will see if anyone else has done it. You didn't plan to did you?

    3. Faith Reaper profile image89
      Faith Reaperposted 23 months agoin reply to this

      Oh, I think that is a fun idea for a hub, Jackie!  And, no, I wasn't planning on doing a hub about it. There's supposed to be a way from the question to say you wrote a hub from it when you get it done. I look forward to it!

    When I was working in the office of a cement factory during 1980, my youngest son (2 year old at that time) somehow reached my office gate and the watchman informed with about it. I immediately went to the gate and was stunned to see the child there. I got angry, scolded him and took him back to the house and scolded at wife also for letting him go.
    And, you know what he complained to his mother? He told her weeping that dad was happily enjoying the train journeys in the office!!!
    It was a factory compound and the goods trains keep passing there regularly to transport raw materials and cement bags and my office was inside that compound. So he thought that all working inside there travel in those trains. It was the most funny thing that we smile at even now.

    When our son was about 4, every time he would see something new on his plate, he would ask : "Will I like it?"
    His mother had a universal answer to all those "why's?" that kids of his age would not understand : "Well, that's the way it has to be".
    In few instances when she caught him doing something bad, she asked him : "Why did you do it?
    The little philosopher would say seriously, as if teaching her : "Mom, that's the way it has to be".

      Hahaha, so cute and wise!  Yes, those whys are enough to get to us if we don't come up with an answer to cut them off so they will not go on forever, but that is how they learn, asking the why!  Your son learned : )

    I am an unmarried 23 year old male and naturally I have nothing to share about my children but I would to like share the funny thing that I would use to ask when I was a child.
    When I was about 6 year old I would ask my mother,"Mom! How was I born?" and my mother would give a more funny,"One day it was raining heavily outside and I put a bathing tub in the courtyard where God threw you from the sky and I picked up."

    Oh my gosh, this could be a hub all it's own. Kid's make smile with the things they say, whether they are mine or someone else's. Facebook is great fun to see what other children say. My friend's daughter told her that ghosts sleep with her and sometimes better her body, but that she shouldn't be scared because they don't do anything weird

    The other day my daughter told me that disobeying divas don't have to listen. When Ivtokd her disobeying divas go to bed early she said, "No, they don't. That's the definition of disobey." I told her "I'm glad you know the definition of disobey, but do you know the definition of punishment?" She quickly said, "No TV, no phone, No fun on spring break!" So I said, "Now that we have that straight." She wasn't being sassy to get in trouble. She's just quick with her mind. Still, I hate to see her teen years!

    They constantly make me laugh with things they come up with.

    I have twins so they doubled up on me. Little ones are so funny! When I was 8 months pregnant a friend introduced me to her young nephew who had just learned about sex. He looked at my huge twin belly and she said "She has 2 babies in there." His little face looked up at me mortified and he said "ohhhhh you did it twice."

    One of my twins opened my glove compartment and pulled out my car insurance. Our windows were down in the car! Oh my! He saw that  there was $10,000.00 in insurance. He said to me! "Wow we get 10G if you get in a car accident." I said, "No honey. If I die while driving I am worth 10G." Just as we got to the red light and came to a stop, he looked over at me and looked bewildered. He said, "What am I worth?" I yelled really loud out of exasperation, "You're worth nothing!"  The lady in the next lane gave me the dirtiest look and then jerked her car and got behind me when the light changed. She was writing down my license plate probably intending to turn me in to Child Protection. bahahahaaa

    And the other twin got me in his first grade class. The DARE program showed up and taught them about drug usage. His cute little face came home and he was so happy telling me all that he'd learned about drugs. His twin brother said "He even raised his hand and talked to the police."  I only remember smiling as I asked him what he had shared...and then my face dropped in shock. My very own kid looked so excited as he replied, "I told the police that you do drugs!" I said "WHAT?" His reply? "Well you do mommy. They said nicotine is a drug so you do drugs." Oh my God help me.

    They are going to be 31 years old and just typing this memory makes my face red as I laugh my butt off. That's okay. I am praying they each have twins and they will see how fun it is.  bahahahahaaaa
