Things About Me That You Might Not Need To Know....

This is Kate... the picture is over a year old... but, she looks just like this still, not much bigger! She is three now. I have been keeping her and she keeps me on my toes. Here are a few of the things she says to me... they keep me humble.

As we were working in the yard one day she wanted to use my "shover" to dig some.

When I don't get the movie going she tells me, "Grandmamamama, THAT'S not right!"

Oh... all the extra mamamamama's are for me. Her Grandma lives in Michigan and so sometimes just to make sure she's talking to the right one she adds a few more ma's.

One day we were going over the parts of the body... this is your nose, knee, foot, etc. I would show her on her and then on me. So, I showed her the calf. She looked at her tiny leg and then my big leg and just said, "you have more calf than me".

We love to go to Chick-a-lay... not Chick-fil-a... (Noah calls it Chick-for-play)

Yesterday we were "swimming" (meaning jumping and standing on the steps while holding tightly to me). She got cold so I scooped her up and wrapped her in a towel to warm her up. She was looking at my neck and got this horrified look on her face. Through clinched teeth she said, "Grandmamamama, what is that on your neck?" I laughed and said, "oh, it's just a mole. Does your daddy have moles too?"
She said, "yes, but only YOURS stick out like that."

Another day we were sitting on the sofa watching a movie. She looked over at me and smiled real big so I smiled back. She said, "Grandmama, you have orange teeth". Then went right back to the movie.

She will also run through the room and say, "Grandmama, I love you so much! So VERY much!" Yeah, that will certainly melt me.

Today Grandaddy was working in the back yard and took his shirt off. Kate said, "GRANDADDY, you have BIG muscles on your back, around your waist!" She was sincerely giving him a complement! Gotta love it!

She is always giving us facts and information that makes us laugh. At the ripe old age of three, she is an expert on everything!

More later....

Perhaps she had on orange tinted sunglasses when she was viewing your teeth??

Love grandkids, don't have any yet though.

I am a new grandma myself, my granddaughter is only 2 months old so we are just learning about each other. I did get a little giggle from her the other day which warmed my heart.

Thanks for sharing and keep writing these precious pearls of youthful wisdom down you will be so glad that you did later on.
