The Grandma Test

One of the Girlies sent me this cute story today so I thought that I'd post it for all of you grandparents out there!  Enjoy!   : )

I was out walking with my Grandson.
He picked up something off of the ground and
started to put it in his mouth.

I took the item away from
him and I asked him not to do that.

"Why?" my Grandson asked.

"Because it's been on the ground; you don't know where it's been,
it's dirty, and probably has germs," I replied.

At this point, my Grandson looked at me with total admiration and asked,
"Grandma, how do you know all this stuff?? You are so smart."

I was thinking quickly and said to him, "All
Grandmas know stuff. It's on the Grandma Test. You
have to know it, or they don't let you be a Grandma."

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but he was evidently
pondering this new information.

"Oh....I get it! he beamed, So if
you don't pass the test you have to be the Grandpa".

"Exactly," I said with a big smile on my face.

I love the Grandma test!!!! I haven't been to your blog in a while, but mercy!!!! You and I have more water problems than anyone I know of. My house needs a new roof. It isn't leaking yet, but it could any time. There are so many singles missing. The roof is about 25 years old....time I guess. I'm putting on a metal roof. Have you watch American Idol this time. I couldn't find any mention of it in your posts. You haven't missed a lot. The sorriest one I have ever seen and the judges keep talking about it's been the best one. I don't think so. I think Scotty will win. I like Haley and Lauren second and third best. Well, I hope you get your house back soon. You are going to have a "new" house. Its going to be lovely!
