The Mouths of Babes

I love my grandkids. Scout is here all the time and I get to enjoy a two year old again. Scout is one of the only kids I have ever known that tells on herself. No need to lie, she just tells you what she did. “I broke this” “I spilled this” etc.

Her favorite past time now is the kittens. She will disappear and hide in the room with them. Very often I find her picking one up by the neck and playing with it. We “talk” about it and then she turns around and does it again.

The other day this is how she came to me:

“Hey Grammie, Look at the kitties HAVING FUN SHOPPING”. I be they were!

Today she said came to me and said “Grammie, you are having a birthday soon and I love you”  With that she began to sing “Happy Birthday” to me and then said she was going to give me a present. She was giving me “wrinkles”. Yup, you heard it! I asked several times, and she said the same thing over and over.What she means, I do not know, but at my age I do not want to hear the word! So, come Sunday I guess I will find out what “wrinkles” is.

I sure hope it is not the right word she is using!

  1. She’s such a cutie! I can’t believe how big she’s getting. Katie has posted some pictures and a cute swimming video on facebook, she’s adorable. :)

  2. My cousin Jesse used to put herself on the naughty bench when she did something wrong. My mother would hear her howling loudly and ask what was wrong. she would reply, “I naughty! I SO naughty!” most of the time my mom would tell her” it’s Ok go play. You’re not naughty!”
