From the Mouth of Babes

I think Art Linkletter was right. Kids say the darnest things.

Max and I were listening to a children's CD from our favorite chicken place. All of a sudden he asked me to skip one of the songs. It was a story where one of the characters loses his best friend. He dies. It makes Max sad. He said, "Meme, why would they tell a little kid a sad story like that????" I told him, I did not know. And, I really don't know why....

On a lighter note. Forrest was in the bathroom, sitting on the potty, when he reached for the toilet tissue, when out of the blue he said, "Meme, you have the softest toilet paper!!!" I mean, what has this poor boy been using??? I need to speak to his parents!!!

Lily and I were getting ready for sleep. Books had been read, backs had been tickled. Things were winding down, when out of the quiet that comes just before sleep, this little voice asked, "Meme, what do you and Shelby (the dog) do when I am not here???" I thought, nothing...nothing really. My mother always told me that the first few hours after the boys and I left were so lonely. I now know how she felt.....

Thanks to you both for the words...

Grammie, sometimes I get to reading blogs and then do not have time to post...so I need to remember to use my words.....

It's so true. Life is just not the same once the children move out of the house.
But when grandkids come along - it's wonderful!

I like your stories too. You do have a way with words; makes me feel like I'm right there with you.

Those are so precious. Ella is really beginning to express herself. I can hardly wait for her to come out with some of those.
