Grandkids: Aren't they great?

My young grandson called the other day  to wish me Happy Birthday.  He asked me how old I was, and I told him, "62." He was quiet for a  moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"
After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old  slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard  the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin.  At last she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room,  putting them back to bed with stern warnings.  As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling  voice, "Who was THAT?"
A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own  childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pond. 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 in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd  gotten to know you sooner!"
My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know  how you and God are alike?"  I mentally polished my halo while I asked, "No, how are we a like?"  "You're both  old," he replied.
A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word  processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he  asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."
I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I  decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it  was. She would tell me, and always she was correct. But it was fun for  me, so I continued. At last she headed for the door, saying sagely,  "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these yourself!"
When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the  lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects.  Still, a few fireflies followed us in.  Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use, Grandpa. The  mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."
When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not  sure."  "Look in your underwear, Grandma,"he advised. "Mine says I'm four to  six".
A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother,  "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today."  The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool.  "That's interesting," she said, "How do you make babies?" "It's simple,"  replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es".
Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a  teacher.  The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The  teacher took the lad aside to correct him.  "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked. "Sure," said the young  boy confidently. "It means carrying a child."
A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids  home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of  the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog.  The children started discussing the dog's duties. "They use him to keep  crowds back," said one youngster. "No, said another, "he's just for good  luck." A third child brought the argument to a close. "They use the  dogs", she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrant."
Yes they are.
