Kids Say The Most Amazing Things

One of the great things about having grandchildren is listening to the things that come out of their mouths, sometimes funny and sometimes sweet.

Last week I went to the eye doctor. Because my eyes were dilated, my son picked me up from the doctor on his way home from work. As a result, he was a little late and probably had to explain to his daughter why he was late getting home. A couple of day later I came over to their house, and the first thing out of my nine year old granddaughter's mouth was "Grandpa, how are your eyes?". I thought that was amazing. 9 years old and the first thing she asked about are my eyes. I was impressed.

My 3 year old granddaughter has amazing observational powers -- for her age. We recently got a new rug for the bathroom. A couple of day later, she walks past the bathroom door, stops, and says "Grandpa, you got a new bathroom rug." She actually noticed. If I had not been with my wife when she bought it, I probably still would not have noticed it and it been there for about 2 weeks.

Today when she came into the house after we picked her up from daycare, she walked through the door and "Celina was here". Celina cleans our house every two week. She noticed! Amazing.

But then, maybe our house is normally really dirty.


  1. Too cute! Thanks for the smile.

  2. Kids seem to be wide open to everything, it's only us grown-ups who end up so focused we miss whats going on around us.
