Grandkids Say the Darndest Things, Fifth Edition

By November 22, 2011

Sadness, death, loss and change can be hard for grown-ups to handle, but children, with their unique perspectives and expressions, can make us laugh even at sad times. Laughter in sadness is the topic of this edition of "Grandkids Say the Darndest Things," featuring preschool grandchildren.

  • Noah's mom was having a rough day. When Noah asked her why she was crying, she told him that she was sad. Noah responded, "Well, I'm sad, but I'm not dripping!" (Taken from Grammy's Lists)
  • Gavin came home from his grandmother's house. "Momma," he said, "I hate to tell you this bad news." His mom asked what had happened. "Great Grammy moved!" he exclaimed. "But this is the bad news. They put all her stuff in a garage sale. People come to your house and steal your stuff at garage sales."
  • The topic of death came up while Brayden was talking with his great-grandmother. She pointed out that he had known some people who had died. Brayden agreed that this was true. "Mr. Jim," he said, "and Grandma Becky and Michael Jackson!"

One of my favorite lines I’ve ever heard a grandchild say is now in her 30′s. “Grandpa,” she asked, “why are you going barefoot on your head?”
