Grandchildren - Out of the Mouths of Babes

Grandchildren add such wonderful moments to our lives don't they? Especially those wee little grandchildren with their innocence. Well it appears we add some wonder to their lives too and hence I wanted to share the follow tidbits that were in something forwarded to me. I've added some pictures of my own.
Madeline's 6th birthday
1. She was in the bathroom putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After applying her lipstick and starting to leave the little one said, "But Gramma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!". I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good bye.

2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. he asked me how old I was, and I told him, 62. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"

3. A grandmother was telliing her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pod. I had a swing made from a tire, it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods". The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!".

4. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good good things, but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him!".
