The one liners – love em. Kids just can’t help themselves. They are honest, to the point, no holds barred. Don’t get me wrong, mine are at ages where they understand manners, being kind with words (and deeds), showing respect etc. But here and there they just say whats on their mind, things that just simply appear obvious to them.
Natalie – ‘Grandad.. people are all different shapes aren’t they’
Grandad – ‘ Yes Natalie they are’
Natalie – ‘That would make you a circle then’
This has got to be one of my all time favourites – as it is true, Grandad is rather round
Another – seems that Grandad has been in the firing line recently!
Jessica – ‘Grandad, why do you walk so slowly and get tired?’
Grandad – ‘Well, I’m old and fat’
Jessica – ‘Grandad, you’re not fat!’
Grandad – ‘Thank you Jessica’
Jessica – ‘You know that I said that just to be kind don’t you’
Ha ha.. teaching them that honesty is always the best policy doesn’t always pay off!
Whilst I love listening in to the girls conversations together, I often cringe as I hear them repeat things they have heard me say, in a tone that I must use. I certainly helps make me more mindful of how I speak, the words I use and the response I’m trying to achieve.
