    His Brain Has A Mind Of Its Own

    | Columbus, OH, USA | Children, Grandchildren, Top

    (Our grandson and us are attending a game fair. One of the vendors hands out foam zombie brains. We manage to get two for our grandson. Apparently, the brain is a bit hard for a five-year-old to hold onto, because we have to keep chasing it down. We are walking in the neighborhood when our grandson again fumbles the brain. We get quite a few stares when he wails:)

    Grandson: “Oh no! I’ve lost my mind!”

    | Athens, Greece | Children, Grandchildren, Grandparents

    (I’m five years old, visiting my grandparents. I sit on the sofa and find a pair of glasses.)

    Me: *holding up the glasses* “Grandma, are these yours?”

    Grandma: “Oh, they must be Electra’s. She was here yesterday.”

    (Electra is her sister-in-law, but I’ve never met her and never heard that name before.)

    Me: *excited* “A ROBOT was here yesterday?!”

    My Family And Other (Extinct) Animals, Part 2

    | France | Grandchildren, Grandparents, Themed Giveaway

    (My four-year-old is looking at her grandmother.)

    Daughter: “Gran, when you were young, did you have TV?”

    Gran: “No. No TV, no computer, no DVD. And the radio was really big.”

    Daughter: “Oh, gran, how sad. You were lucky when you were young!”

    Gran: “Why is that?”

    Daughter: “Well… you got to play with your pet dinosaur. I can’t do that because they are all extinct!”

    Suddenly A Massage Is Not So Relaxing

    | Mexico City, Mexico | Children, Grandchildren, Nephews & Nieces, Themed Giveaway

    (My mother got herself a massage machine. One day my brother and his family visit.)

    Niece: “Granny, here is your vibrator!”

    The Walking Dead: The Next Generation, Part 2

    | OH, USA | Children, Grandchildren, Themed Giveaway

    (I try to keep our grandsons from being scared of make-believe things, but I have not been sure how successful my tactics are. The six-year-old grandson runs up to his three-year-old brother.)

    Six-Year-Old Grandson: “I’m a zombie. Uhhhhhh…”

    (The three-year-old screams.)

    Six-Year-Old Grandson: *to me* “It’s okay. We know zombies aren’t real. We’re just pretending.”

    (The three-year-old smiles and nods, screams again, and runs out of the room yelling.)

    Three-Year-Old Grandson: “The zombies are coming!”
