The cute and hilarious things our grandkids say 38

Don’t kids just say the cutest, funniest things? They’re so open and honest… and sometimes a little too much!

Overnight, Kate Middleton, met two-year-old Freddie Wilson at the Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing’s headquarters in Portsmouth, England.

“Hello Princess, my name is Freddie Wilson” Freddie announced. When she asked Freddie how old he was, he answered, “I’m three,” without any hesitation.

When his mum corrected him to say he was two, the Princess said, “George says that. He thinks he’s older”!

It made us think, what cute and funny things do you grandkids say?


Here’s our favourites we’ve heard – add your own below!

I took my 6-year-old grandson to his favourite restaurant. Being very grown up, he ordered everything for himself. When the waiter asked him how he wanted his steak, he replied with a puzzled look, “You know … on a plate!”

“Hey Grandma, Why don’t you and Grandpa have names like the rest of us?”

My 5-year-old grandson didn’t love his mum’s newly-bleached hair, which had gone from dark brown to almost white. “Granny,” he said, “I liked my mum’s hair better when it matched her eyebrows…like yours!”

My 3-year-old granddaughter once asked me, “Grandma, how old are you?” “How old do you think I am?” I asked. “10. You are 10.” “Nope,” I said. “I’m soon going to be 60 years old.” “60?!” she replied. “I don’t know THAT number!”

When my granddaughter was 4, I told her she was growing up too fast and needed to slow down. “But it isn’t my fault, Nan,” she replied. “It’s my mum’s fault. She keeps giving me all those birthday parties”

I once asked my granddaughter if she knew what her whole name was. Proudly she stated, “Cassandra Lauren Miller Come Here”

“My grandson saw me take off my shirt and, pointing at my chest, asked, ‘How come you got a beard on there?’”

“Recently I was at the shopping centre with my granddaughter when she spotted a rather large woman ahead of us wearing a black coat. She yelled, ‘Look Nanny, a bear!’”

“When my granddaughter was little her Dad told her Jesus was there with her in the room. She didn’t understand, so she asked, ‘Daddy, are you Jesus?’ He laughed and said no. Still confused, she then asked, ‘Daddy, am I Jesus?’”

This morning, my wife told my 3-year-old grandson that owls were nocturnal. She responded, “Yes, owls are not turtles”!

My 3-year-old grandson and I were talking on the phone but I couldn’t make out all that he was saying so I kept asking, “What?” until finally, exasperated, he said, “Grandma, you’re not listening loud enough!”

All the grandkids were swimming and 7-year-old Madison asked if I was going to wear my togs, too. I teasingly told her that I was going to put on my bikini. Her eyes sparkled and she said, “Cool! People your age will think you’re hot!”

I was on the phone with my son discussing dinner plans and my 7-year-old granddaughter informed us that “salad is ruining my life”.

    • I had a similar thing happen with my eldest daughter when she was 4. I was expecting her sister and we were waiting in the prenatal waiting room with other expectant mums. She asked me how big is the baby now. I told her about half grown. She thought for a moment and asked me – which half, the top half or the bottom half. Very entertaining for the other mums (and me)

  2. On finding out I was older than my husband, my little grandaughter said “well you will die first and then Grandpa next “

  3. When my daughter was 6 we sadly lost my mother, her nana in February. Come Easter and she said,”Will Nana rise on Hot Cross Bun Day?” If only. So funny/sad at the time.

  4. Trying to encourage my grandson to read books I told I had read 4 in 4 days. He stopped, looked at me for a couple of minutes and said “Gee, Nanna does your brain hurt”!!

  5. My grandson, about 6 at the time, was staying over. He said “Grandma I’m a bugger of a child” I said “No you’re not” He said “Well Mum said I am!” My grand daughter, about 7 at the time, said to me ” what’s that mark on your face, oh it’s ok it’s only a wrinkle!”

  6. I gave my 6 year old granddaughter salad and she looked at it and finally said “manna, there is a stick on my plate”. I removed the piece of lettuce and she happily ate it

  7. My grandson, when he was about 4, was playing with my upper arm, (bit flabby) and asked me what used to be in there? Haha
