My great-granddaughter’s mom was getting dressed when Elaina asked her mommy, “Where are you going?” Mommy answered, “To the gym.” Elaina then asked, “Why?” Mommy answered, “I want to stay pretty.” Elaina had a much easier solution: “If you change your shirt you’ll be pretty.”

A grandmother did not know if her little granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so she decided to test her. The grandmother would point out something and ask her granddaughter, “What color it that?” The granddaughter always answered correctly. It was so much fun, the grandmother continued with the game. Finally, the little girl threw her hands up and said, “Grandma, I am done. I think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself without my help!”

My grandson had just started kindergarten and, at the end of the day, my daughter and 3-year-old granddaughter went to pick him up at school. She saw his classroom and playground, and on the way home she asked him, “So, where was the garden?”

We were babysitting our 3-yearold grandson and, as we were to eat, he was standing on a chair. He was asked to “please sit on his hiney” so he wouldn’t fall. He said something we didn’t understand, so we asked him to repeat himself. He tapped his knee and said, “I don’t have a ‘high knee’ I have a ‘low knee.’” We burst out laughing.
