A few days ago my wee grandson said
“Back in the olden days when I was at nursery.”
He’s 8 but obviously feeling his age already. My husband and I just couldn’t stop laughing. Any one else have grandchildren who say amusing things?

I was sitting on the sofa with a faux fur throw around me and my just-two year old granddaughter. I said: “This is just like a snow leopard isn’t it.” My granddaughter looked at me solemnly and said “ No grandma, it’s not a snow leopard, it’s your blanket.”

My 5 year old DGS said to me quite seriously, 'it's lucky you're our Gran because you're actually called Gran'! What a coincidence! I did explain that other people called me Jane but he wasn't convinced.

My first ever post on GN!
My friends GD said, on finding out my friend is 52, "gosh nana, that's........big"!!

My then 3 year old granddaughter used to say she had sprinkles in her feet when in fact she had pins and needles.

The most recent one that still makes me chuckle; I had complimented my SiL on a lovely meal and my Granddaughter said “Yes Nanny my Daddy is a good cooker, he’s a better cooker than you are” Truly put me in my place!

When my son was five he fell at school. When he got home he rolled up his trousers to reveal a grazed knee. "Wow" he said "if I'd known it was that bad i would have cried".

my 11 yr old GD, when asked what she had for Christmas listed a few things then said, 'this year Nan I had quality over quantity'.

Complaining about my baby weight and how fat I felt, my 4 year old daughter said “ you’re not fat mummy, you’ve got big skin “ smile

Struggling up a steep hill in the rain pushing a carriage built pram laden with son and shopping I urged my small daughter walking behind to "Chop chop" (naval family background). She replied, rather crossly "I am chopping!!".....

My DD2 is not very tall. When she was picking her 10 yr old up from after school club a younger child looked her up & down and asked, "Are you a little big one? "

My sister said to her five year old daughter, 'You're up early this morning'. Little one replied, 'I'm not a pearly'.....

3 year old DGD has gone off kisses. I told her that I still liked kisses, so she told me to "kiss you then".

When grandson George was three and I was providing lunch, I asked whether he would like a hot cross bun. His reply.....I’d like a cold one please Nanny 😊

My favourite one is at school pick up when my darling granddaughter fell over, she got her self up but then was looking all around her on the ground. She’d “lost my circles” I helped her look without success, it was the holes in her warm woolly tights

Family were here for lunch yesterday and 7 yr old DGS said I love this trifle grandma it's good you use the tried and tested recipe! Old head on very young shoulders

My granddaughter was told to ask daddy if he would like his apple turnover slightly warmed, she asked him if he wanted it scartly wormed. It's still called that.!!!

DS3 was about 2, sitting on my lap, when his siblings and I were discussing “Monday’s child is fair of face”, etc. I commented that three of were Thursday’s child, except him. He was Tuesday’s child, full of grace. He turned to me and said indignantly “ I’m not full of grapes!”

I recall many ! years ago my six year old eldest daughter asking my father' Were you a Viking granddad?' At that time we were watching a TV documentary on those who had invaded Britain hundreds of years ago. Grandfather was not impressed.

My DGD 4 this year were sitting on a bench dedicated to a man called Stanley in 1923. I told my DGD that was my Daddy’s name and she asked me where he lives. I told her that he had sadly died. She looked very concerned and said “ You’re not going to die are you Nana because who will look after me”

They still say cute things at 9. I always put the presents I have bought granddaughters for Christmas in individual sacks. M picked hers up on Christmas morning and said"ah yes the little bag of joy" I was chuffed!

DS1 was about 10, out walking in the sand dunes while on holiday, tripped over in a rabbit hole, got up very angry and said “who put that there?
We still laugh about it now! his face was a picture😂

DS1, when telling me about something he insisted was called "The Harvest Vegetable" said that on Monday they were doing it for the mummies and daddies, then on Tuesday "We are doing it for......for.......(long and thoughtful pause) "The crumple faced ladies and gentlemen"

it was the "ladies and gentlmen" bit that tickled me!

I was singing along to the radio and my neighbour's little boy enquired 'Did they have music like that when you were alive?'
