Love to hear good stories of grandchildren. They truly are blessings!

Not always Addie. To this day I'd still trade in our son for two just like his sister. Three on the really aggravating days.

My daughter is now three and half years old. She is now always eager to pointing my faults and correcting them. Last night she asked me that why I am so forgetful and absent minded, I replied that because I am not so sharp (although the conversation was in Bengali but I used the term 'sharp' ) like her. This morning she told her Papa "Mamma is not a 'shark' (she has taken sharp as shark) like me, she is a whale".

The mistakes children make when learning are sometimes the most precious.

radhuni, that is such a sweet story. Take it from a Mom of adult children who didn't do this: write down all these cute things your child says. That way when she gets older you can laugh together about what adorable things she said as a child. I'm sure when our kids and I reminisce we've forgotten more stories than we remember.

When I was working as a graphic designer many moons ago, someone I worked with asked me to take a list of her daughter's funny sayings and make it suitable for framing. She gave it to her daughter as a high school graduation present.

Thank you so much for the beautiful ideas.My mom still tell us the funny things we had done or said in our childhood, but writing down or giving her as a present never came across my mind. I will certainly write down and wait to give her as a present with some of her cute photos. I will write the name of you two and will tell her that you have given me the idea.

Thank you again GotGarlic and Cooking Goddess.
