Posted By




Monday. Granddaughter’s playing “don’t touch the floor”.

In other words, she’s jumping from the bed to the cooler in the corner. 🙂

Grampa: Don’t do that. You’re gonna fall and get hurt.
GD: Ok grampa.

Tuesday. She’s jumping from the bed to the cooler in the corner.

Grampa: Don’t do that. I told you, you’re gonna fall and get hurt.
GD: Ok grampa.

Thursday. She’s jumping from the bed to the cooler in the corner.

Grampa: What have I told you? Don’t DO that. You’re gonna fall and get hurt.
GD: O-Kayyyyyy grampa!

The Granddaughter - Always on the Go!

Saturday. She’s jumping from the bed to the cooler in the corner. The cooler moves and she falls and hits her head on the wall.

The look on her face says, “yes, it hurts. I wanna cry. But I’m not gonna because it’ll just prove grampa right.”

Grampa: Come over here and lemme see.
GD: (goes over to grampa)
Grampa: You hurt your head?
GD: (in a whimpery voice) Yes grampa.
Grampa: You see why I’ve been telling you to not jump over there? I don’t want you to get hurt!
GD: I know grampa.
Grampa: Ok. So you’re gonna listen to me and you’re not going jump there anymore, right?
GD: Nooooo grampa… I’m not going to jump THERE anymore!

Grampa: Hiding Smile - Because that's what we do as parents




I have no idea what the next thing she’ll be jumping to is, but I know where’s there’s her will, there’s a way! 🙂

p.s. Please share YOUR favorite grandchild moment in the comments below… I love the laughs!




I'm a passionate, down-to-earth gal who spends as much time as possible making fun of myself and the world around me. I'm a big kid with a lot of thoughts that I don't mind sharing AND, I love to teach. Anything. Everything. As long as it's fun.

Warning: I was raised in a VERY sarcastic household so my sense of humor always leans that way. :)

But if I can make you think, make you laugh, or give you a moment to pause... life is good!:D
