Grandchildren On Red Alert

| NC, USA | Grandchildren, Popular

(This was a story my boss told, about one eventful car ride after picking up her grandson from school.)

Boss: *stops at a red light, and makes a legal right turn*

Grandson: “Grandma! That was a red light! A RED LIGHT! You’re supposed to stop. RED means STOP!”

Boss: “It’s called a ‘right on red’ and there was nobody coming.”

(Her grandson sees a police car parked by the road, and he rolls down the window and tries to hang out of the window waving and screaming.)

Grandson: “GRANDMA RAN A RED LIGHT! HEY! HEY, MISTER OFFICER, GRANDMA RAN A RED LIGHT!”

(Thankfully, there wasn’t anybody around and he didn’t fall out of the window!)

A Cautionary Trip

| Waverly, OH, USA | Grandchildren

(While his little brother was using the restroom, my seven-year-old grandson inspects the huge tent-like “CAUTION” sign a worker had left blocking the path to the stalls.)

Grandson: “Does this sign say ‘caution’ because you might trip over it?”

Getting Him Out Of His Shell Dude

| OH, USA | Grandchildren, Grandparents

(Our older grandson has always been a fan of “Finding Nemo.” One day, when he was at the animal noises stage, we were playing that game in the car.)

Me: “What does a cow say?”

Grandson: “Moo.”

Grandfather: “What does the pig say?”

Grandson: “Oink.”

(And so on until…)

Me: “What does the turtle say?”

Grandson: “Duuuude!”

Wear Your Air

| OH, USA | Grandchildren

(My four-year-old grandson and I are playing a game when I belched rather loudly. My grandson just stared at me for a moment, and then took a step back.)

Grandson: “I stepped back so none of the burp got on me.”

(He then looked all around him and checked out his clothing.)

Grandson: “Yeah. It missed me.”

As Long As It’s Not ‘Avada Kedavra’

| OH, USA | Grandchildren

(I’ve been reinforcing manners with my grandsons. One day, the older one offers his brother the dry-erase board:)

Older Grandson: “What’s the magic word?”

Younger Grandson: “Abracadabra?”

The Lord Of The Rings: The Next Generation

| Waverly, OH, USA | Grandchildren

(My grandsons have recently watched all of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit movies. The following happens when my son takes them out for dinner.)

Older Grandson: *to his younger brother* “Eat your potatoes.”

Younger Grandson: *in a hissing voice* “What’s taters, precious?”

(We are now a three-generation family of geeks.)
