Ok, I've got another one. lol My daughter and her 4 yr. old was over. The four yr old took my daughter into "Her room" and was showing her Mom the room (as if my daughter had not seen it many times already). LOL My Granddaughter told her mom
" Look Mommy, Nana's a big girl now. She made the bed all by herself." LOL

OK, Another short story. LOL When one of my many grandsons' was 4 yrs old I asked him if her would go on a Date with his Grandma. He asked me what is a date? I told him that a date is when you ask someone special to go somewhere with you. He said" grandma I would like to go on a date with you, but can we take Clayton (His half brother,15 yrs old) with us?" I told him sure.
Well our date consisted of lunch at a chineese resturant and a stop at an "Alpaca Farm" that was having an open house. We got to pet the Baby Alpacas' and see all the stuff that is made from the Alpaca wool. I sure cann't afford a $35. pair of socks.
By the way it was my birthday. I did pick up an Alpaca coloring book for him that he did not know about.
When we got home I pulled out the coloring book and gave it to him. lol He told me
"Grandma, I will go on a Date with you anytime, cause I like dates." LOL
The next year My daughter called me to ask if I could babysit. When I got there my now 5yr old grandson grabbed my hand and said " Come on Grandma we are going on a date. This time Mommy and my brothers are all coming with us." When we got where we were going it was the Chineese resturant. lol He took my hand and led me to the same table we ate at the year before and helped me into my chair. He looked at me and said "See Grandma I rememberd our table. I will take you on a Date for your Birthday every year." LOL I Love my Grandchildren. LOL

Hi Vickie, I just love this post!! I've got another one for ya, my nephew who was about 4 or 5 at the time looks alot like Mr. Magoo! Not that I'm poking fun, just want to give you the visual image…His Mom and Dad decide to have a Superbowl Party at their house and invite all the family and kids. The boys were in the back room and the girls were having a "Tea Party" in the kitchen. The girls then decide they want to go outside to play and the boys followed through the kitchen and out the back door…all except Ryan who thought no one was looking…I was standing against the wall in between the kitchen and living room pretending NOT to notice…he walks over to the first of many tea sets all of them filled with Kool-aide…he looks to the right and then the left and drinks the teacup down and moves on to the next teacup…looks to the right and then the left and drinks it down…he ended up drinking ALL of the drinks and it was all I could do to NOT bust out laughing!!!! 6 Tea sets in all with 4 tea cups per set!! It was definitely one time I wished I had a video camera cause it definitely would have made America's Funniest!!!! Thanks for making me smile today!! Your friend, Ellen :)

Ok, I have to tell this one. ARRGG! LOL
My second Daughter stopped over at my oldest Daughters' house bringing her little boy with her. My oldest Daughter had just gotten a big recliner. As my Grandson walked past the recliner he started throwing up. I got on my knees and taking a rag started cleaning my Grandson up and then checking to make sure it did not splash on the chair. I then started cleaning the floor in front of the little guy. (This all happened in a matter of about 1 minute). As I was cleaning the floor benieth my Grandsons' head he let loose again. Yep! Right on my head. I yelled to my Girls, Yes, the youngest one was there too, to get me a towel. I could not move without Umm, making a much bigger mess. I was kneeling on the floor waiting patiently. I must have waited about 4-5 minutes yelling about every 30 seconds for a towel. The middle Daughter, whos' son and just decorated my head, finally handed me a towel which I promtly wrapped around my head and got to my feet. My oldest Daughter was sitting (well kind of sitting) on the couch with her arms wrapped around her laughing so hard she could barley move. My middle Daghter who had gotten me the towl was laghing so hard she had literally peed her pants. My youngest Daughter was rolling on the kitchen floor laughing. I picked up my Grandson and took him to the bathroom and asked him if he was ok and felt like throwing up anymore. He told me " I feel better now grandma. Thank you for catching it for me." I finished cleaning him up and put him on my bed to lay down while I got in the shower. I was kind of mad at the girls at first, but as I got cleaned up I started laughing about it myself. That was about thirteen years ago and I have to laugh about it as do my girls.
By the way, It takes about three latherings to get the smell out.

When my daughter was getting ready for her third birthday she convinced my dad that she needed to get a cake from the bakery. I was perplexed when they came home with a cake with a construction worker. I asked my dad, why? He told me she insisted on a cake with a hat and that was the only one with a hat. I asked my daughter why it had to have hat; she looked at me like I was the dumbest guy in the world and said it's "hatta" birthday. Another one that comes to mind was when my three year old niece was staying with us and she locked herself in the bathroom. I explained to her how to unlock the door. After waiting a long time without anything happening I asked her why she wasn't doing anything she replied "I can't" I asked why can't she; at this time she started wailing and then she answered "I can't because I'm cryyyiiing".

I come from a large family with many small children. I was twelve when I began to make up stories for my younger brothers, sisters and cousins. My favorite started by asking them things like do you remember when you were little and I used keep you in a matchbox and let you ride my pet mouse…I've been saying this for generations and every single one of them told me they remember. It always cracks me up and it always brings tears to my eyes. By the way this discussion out positives me and that makes me sooooo happy; thanks again.

When my oldest son was in high school, he was taking a college level physics course to earn credit before he went to college. After taking the final when he walked in the door his first words to me were "Thank God I'm never going to have to take another physics course!" Of course, now years later, he has his PH.D, in ??? you guessed it - Physics and he is teaching it to others. I've told him I'm going to remind him of that on the day I die because I'll never forget those words and the way things turned around.

Hey Vickie, I got one for ya!! My daughter just posted on her facebook "Bathtime with the boys…Mom what are these two things right here?? Are these my kidneys?" Mom answers, "No those are your testicles." So I posted to my daughter "Yeah, wait until they ask you what there for!!" LOLOL She wrote back and said "Yeah that was the next question! We kinda cut that conversation short!" LOLOL

When my daughters were little they went out and picked the very green pears off the tree. The pear tree as only about a foot taller than the girls (ages 3, 5,6). In the process they broke the nicest branch off of the tree (sapling). I was so angry that I took the branch and lay it on the front porch so their dad could see it as soon as he got home. I sent the girls to their room to wait for Daddy.
When he got home he came in grouching "Who broke my pear tree?" I told him "Take your pick there are three of them." After discussing it he had me get one girl at a time and bring her to see him. He sat each one on his lap in turn. He asked each, "Why did you break my pear tree?" He would then give them a spanking and send them to our room so they could not talk to the others. When it came to the three year old he asked her "Why did you break my pear tree?" She didn't say anything. He asked her something like three times.The fourth time He asked her why she broke his pear tree and no answer, he said "Well, why'd you do it?" That little inocent face looked up at him and said " Dist a minit I'm tinkin!" I promptly went in the bathroom, placed a towel over my mouth and burst out laughing. When I thought I had my laughter under control I stepped back out and took one look at him. Back in the bathroom I went again. What I had seen was tears running down his face while having a very pained expretion on it. As soon as he got it together enough he gave her one swat on her little tush and sent her back to the girls' room.
I sent the other two back there and then him and I went outside on the front porch and sat down. Then we looked at each other and burst out laughing again.
To this day whenever I think about it I get laughter tears in myy eyes.

When I was planning my first wedding, I asked my aunt over christmas dinner if my very small cousins could both be my ring bearers. I feel a tug on my pants and look down to this tiny face saying "Doyce…Doyce! I just wanna be rudolph"

My first wedding was in a church. My other cousin was sitting with my grandparents during the ceremony. When we kissed she leaned over to my granny and said "Are they allowed to kiss in church???!!"

I work for an anesthesia group. People complain about the charges so we are now offerring discount anesthesia. Option 1 tequila. Option 2 baseball bat.

From Our Daily Bread: A mother asks her 5 year old to get a can of tomato soup from the pantry. The boy says, "I don't want to. It is dark in there" Mother says, "Don't worry, Jesus is in there." Little boy opens the pantry door and yells, "Hey Jesus, pass me out a can of tomato soup please."

Here's a silly Basset Hound story-my idiot dog decided one day he wanted to get on my glass coffee table, so he climbed from the couch to the coffee table. He got stuck! One front leg was on the coffe table and one was dangling mid-ar and one back leg was on the couch and one was dangling mid-air. He had this really pathetic big Basset eyed expression like "Help me, please help me" and we were laughing so hard we couldn't even move to help him. So he dangled there for a bit, until one of us was able to help him back up onto the couch. And he figured out another way onto that coffe talbe-but that's another story! My house is like a circus with those dogs :-P

When I was a boy on the farm we had a series of Basset hounds, I really loved them, especially our first one "Happy". Unfortunately they had a bad habit of going out on the county road. We tried to break them of it, but they were determined to be out there. One by one they would get hit by cars. They were bone-headed, but lovable!

Funny HMO Q & A:

Q. What does HMO stand for?
A. This is actually a variation of the phrase, 'Hey, Moe!' Its roots go back to a concept pioneered by Dr. Moe Howard of "The Three Stoogies " who discovered that a patient could be made to forget about the pain in his foot if he was poked hard enough in the eyes.

Q. I just joined an HMO. How difficult will it be to choose the doctor I want?
A. Just slightly more difficult than choosing your parents. Your insurer will provide you with a book listing all the doctors who were participating in the plan. These doctors basically fall into two categories those who are no longer accepting new patients, and those who will see you but are no longer part of the plan. But don't worry, the remaining doctor who is still in the plan and accepting new patients has an office just a half-day's drive away and that diploma from a small Caribbean Island is very fresh.

Q. Do all diagnostic procedures require pre-certification?
A. No. Only those you need.

Q. What are preexisting conditions?
A. This is a term used by the grammatically challenged when they want to talk about existing conditions. Unfortunately, we appear to be pre-stuck with 'pre and now' meaning the same.

Q. Can I get coverage for my preexisting conditions?
A. Certainly, as long as they don't require any treatment.

Q. What happens if I want to try alternative forms of medicine?
A. You'll need to find alternative forms of payment.

Q. My pharmacy plan only covers generic drugs, but I need the name brand. I tried the generic medication, but it gave me a stomach ache. What should I do?
A. Poke yourself in the eye.

Q. What if I'm away from home and I get sick?
A. You really shouldn't do that.

Q. I think I need to see a specialist, but my doctor insists he can handle my problem. Can a general practitioner really perform a heart transplant right in his office?
A. Hard to say, but considering that all you're risking is the $10 CO-payment, there is no harm giving him a shot at it.

Q. Will health care be any different in the next century?
A. No. But if you call right now, you might get an appointment by then.

My grandson is gifted and has a fascination with naming all the bones of the body according to their proper medical terms. Like the names of the bones in your fingers & hands are called carpels, metacarpels, phlanges,ect. and then your head is cranium ect. Anyway, he started this thing naming the bones when he was 4 yrs. old. I was quizzing him one day and I started with the skull bones and was working my way down. I decided to start asking him where different body organs were so he could learn them as well. I asked him where his kidneys were and promptly he put his hands on his knees and says " right here nan, thease are kids knees" . I busted out laughing. Afterall he was right, they were kids knees!!!

I have 4 boys & 1 girl. My daughter has Aspergers Syndrome and not much of a fighter. One day, my twin boys were being picked on by 3 other boys. My twins were handling their own until the 3rd boy got into it. My daughter came running from across the school yard & tackled the boy. Lol, by the time my oldest got to them she was slapping the boy and yelling, "Fight fair or stay out of it". My oldest said he was totally shocked, but had to calm down my crying daughter because she was so mad & shocked at herself.
