May 2022 Funny Stories

A few years ago, I was teaching school in St. Louis, Missouri. I taught first and second graders. One morning one of my little second graders came rushing into the classroom. “I’m so excited!” she said. “Our apple tree is blooming, but I’m not sure if we will have cherries or plums.” I did my best to not laugh when I said to her, “It may just be apples.”

A year ago on Memorial Day, my husband and I visited family members at our local cemeteries with three of our grandchildren, ages 11, 8 and 4. Upon visiting the second cemetery, our 8-year-old granddaughter asked me, “Grandma, is everyone here dead?” I answered yes. She responded by saying, “Grandma, I don’t want to die.” I asked, “Why not? They say heaven is a great place to go.” Our 4-year-old grandson chimed in, “Grandma, Tractor Supply is a great place to go, too.”

I have two grandsons who live in Australia, so my daughter shares stories of what they are doing. When the boys are playing and getting into trouble my daughter often says, “You’re really pushing my buttons.” Her 5-year-old will say, “I don’t even know where these buttons are, so how can I push them?”
