Funny things grandchildren do

My granddaughter did a couple funny things this month. She loves buttons, anything with a button presents her with an irresistible urge to push it.

Earlier today my wife filled a water bottle at the refrigerator by holding the bottle under the nozzle and pushing the button to fill it up. Of course my 20 month old granddaughter was watching. A little while later my wife hears a muffled scream. My granddaughter had pushed the refrigerator water button and got squirted in the face. She didn't cry but she sure was startled.

Earlier on another visit she discovered our carbon monoxide detector plugged into a wall socket in a bedroom. We hear this loud beep and see her running for her life out of the bedroom, that test button makes a lot of racket.

Re: Funny things grandchildren do

That sounds adorable!!! And very funny!
My just-turned-two year old is sociable and once she starts talking she can yabber away for ages, but upon first meeting other kids she will stand right in front of them just smiling and staring. I'm sure others think it's creepy but I think she is the cutest! haha

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they donít have any.
For those that think the idea of marriage is all about hugs, kisses and being tied down forever after it is way more than that, and marriage can actually be most important when you find yourself in one of life's ugliest moments.-BadSanta

I wonder if she learned her lesson about pushing buttons?

Re: Funny things grandchildren do

My grandson is 26 months and totally adorable Last weekend we had him with us at an RV show. He of course wanted to be carried around and during an attempt to shift his weight on my arms he ended up flopped over with his head hanging upside down and his arms flopping around, and just hung there like that for quite a while. One of the vendors we passed started laughing and said my child was melting.

Yesterday my daughter sent me a picture of him cooking. He had a cracker in the cast iron skillet on the stove and was mixing it

People don't get a free pass to cheat just because their marriage sucks.

Re: Funny things grandchildren do

My grandson is a walking talking disaster zone.

When he was two, he apparently picked up a cool, colorful, pretty coral snake and was bit. My wife and I rushed him to the hospital where they administered three vials of anti-venom. I'm probably lucky I didn't wind up in the hospital myself; the little guy about gave me a heart attack.

He's four now, and a couple of months ago he broke his leg while playing hockey in the house with my youngest two. He's finally out of the cast now.

I'm surprised I haven't had CPS in my hair; he's usually banged up to one extent or another.

He calls me "GrandDude".

My grandson has recently started calling people by their names instead of mommy, daddy, grammy and grampa.

Not yet she still pushes every one in sight. She keeps messing up my Tivo.

Our grandson broke his arm the first day of first grade on the monkey bars during recess.

When my son was that age, he used to 'make paper' by pushing buttons on my computer. He thought that was so much fun... he's just giggle when the paper came out.

"GrandDude" is soo cute.

I cannot talk about grand kids cause I don't have any yet. But this reminds me of my kid. When he was 3 he wanted pet dinosaurs. He did not believe me when I told him there we none any more. So he told me to take him to the pet store so he could show me that I was wrong. There were, of course, no dinosaurs. But there was a really cool albino snake which was apparently as cool as a pet dinosaur. He picked the snake up before anyone even saw what he was doing. The snake bit him. (it was not venomous) That ended his desire for pet dinosaurs and pet snakes.

Re: Funny things grandchildren do

A sad update, a power failure at my granddaughters house Friday set off an alarm in the house and she ran for her father shaking. So I guess the test button on the carbon monoxide monitor really scared the heck out of her.

One of my kids was so terrorized by a fire drill at daycare when he was little that I had to desensitize him to the home alarm. He refused to come in the house, I had to literally drag him in kicking and screaming that day and the next and spend a lot of time settling him down and convincing him our fire alarm wasn't going to go off.

We had our grandson over yesterday and he found a picture of himself and asked if 'that guy' was eating (he was). He's really starting to put words together now!! It's so cool when they're starting to talk.

Re: Funny things grandchildren do

We had the little guy for just over 24 hours this weekend and he is SUCH a joy!! He wakes up just beaming with smiles and was SO happy when I went in and got him out of the playpen in the morning. His latest thing is asking for help. When I opened the door he decided to climb up the side of the playpen to get out. He did pretty good and didn't get stuck or anything, but did slip a bit and decided he was in trouble and just quietly said "grammy, help me please, please help me grammy, help me please" in this quiet little voice that struck me as SO hilarious. Of course it sounded more like "gwammy, hewp me pweeze, pweese gwammy hewp" because he doesn't have the whole L thing down yet. SO freaking cute.
