Grand Things Kids Say

A couple weeks ago, Gramps and I took Mac to the lake in the boat. (It is still very hot here is Texas!) We went all around the lake and then decided we would beach the boat so we could do some swimming and wading in the cool water. Mac had his life jacket on and jumped over the side of the boat, making a very large splash. His comment – “What a huge displacement!”.

Thank you Science teacher!

Grand Things Kids Say

Laughing small kids on a white background

One weekend Mac came to visit us and we started playing Monopoly. Gramps’ playing piece was the hat, mine was the thimble and Mac’s was the car. The game lasted from one day to the next, as it often does.

It was becoming clear that Gramps was going to win, as he had all the hotels and houses. Whoever landed on one of his properties next was going to go bankrupt. Mac sat up straight and announced, “I’m going to sell my car!” and promptly traded his playing piece in for the horse. Gramps tried to convince him that the maintenance cost of a horse would probably be more than the car, but Mac was convinced his luck would change.

Gramps, of course, won royally, but what a laugh we had!

Gramps’ brother had come from California for a visit. The two men look somewhat similar, as brothers often do. Our then six year old grandson Mac hadn’t seen his Great Uncle for quite some time and although he was very glad to see his elder kin, he couldn’t remember his name. The youngster very cleverly saved the day by referring to him as “the other Gramps”. To this day, we all call him “the other Gramps”. It just fits.
