Jake giggles hysterically. His mom tells him not to be so silly. More giggling follows. Mom again suggests he settle down.

Jake: Hee-hee-hee...having an evil laugh--that's what life is all about!

Emmie is discussing her book.

Emmie: Do you know why Junie B. thinks she can get what she wants? Because she just always tells people she wants it. That's what I do.

Jake tells me he likes basketball. I say I do, too.

Jake: I don't think so. You're pretty old. The only things for you to do are read stories, take naps and drive.

Emmie finishes off her mom's Diet Coke regularly. When I took her to Wendy's and she wanted another drink, I told her she could have mine.

Emmie, suspiciously: What's in it?
Oma: Coke.
Emmie: Not Diet Coke?
Oma: Just regular coke.
Emmie: I'm not allowed.

Later, she was discussing choosing the right with her mom.

Emmie: When people do evil (they seem to like the word evil) do they have to get baptized again?
Mom: Sometimes.
Emmie, proudly: When Oma wanted me to drink her special drink, I said "No."

Maybe you should get out the coffee and really shock her. She could use that story in Primary for years!

Way to try and poison the grandchildren with your addictive elixir!

These were HILARIOUS. I love the things kids say. So funny!

It is always humbling to get the grandkids perspective... just remember that "no good deed goes unpunished". I don't know what that means but I think you may have gotten some "punishing" along with your good deed! Truth:
Kids say the darnest things (in the sweetest, most innocent way!)

What a fun grandma. The (almost) best thing about my mom is that she appreciates my kidspeak as much as I do.
