I'm Not Even Kidding - The Pokey Episode

We all know how much Itty Bit loves his Grandma, right?


(Grandma pretending to be a robot.  Yes, she’s going to kill me.  Yes it was totally worth it).

Anyone else have a kid who behaves better for Grandma?


Cuz, Grandma is just fun.  All FUN.



So the secret of having a better-behaved kiddo is just to have FUN?


Well, this woman ROCKS the fun stuff.  So he should be a peach for her, right?



To his delight, she swooped in and kidnapped him for an afternoon of fun.

Meaning: shopping for toys – you know, for a little Angel-Boy (no kidding, she calls him that… I am completely blaming her for Itty Bit telling perfect strangers his name is Angel-Boy).

And Grandma apparently has not been reading the “Shopping With Kids” PSA’s on this blog…


They score an awesome train set, then head over to the Christian Bookstore.

Itty Bit hauls in his newest Thomas the Train character, Kelly.

Kelly the Crane

Kelly (who I haven’t figured out is a boy or girl yet), sports an appendage that swivels, raises and lowers, and of course, EXTENDS.

Itty Bit walks around the store, carrying Kelly like a weapon, pointed straight out from him.  A female employee begins to round the corner near Itty Bit.

To this point, my mother swears that Itty Bit was angelic.  But even she couldn’t resist a smile while telling of Itty Bit’s bewildering misstep into delinquency.


(look close, the infamous double eyebrows make an appearance!)

Suddenly Angel-Boy falls to the floor and yells out “HEY!” with a scowl.

The well-nourished woman looks down at him and says with a straight face,

“He poked me”.


Oh help me.


My face is already red as my mother continues…


Itty Bit looked down at his toy, then up through his furrowed brow.  By that point, both he and the toy looked every bit guilty.



“I’m sorry I poked you in the butt.”


Oy Vey


And you know what that precious woman said to him?



“Are you four?”

You are gonna be in for it... look at that kid's face! He is going to be a heartbreaker!

Kids and their grandparents almost ALWAYS get along better. They have a common enemy.

Ummm, that would be you.


robin said...

LOL! Totally cute! I can't decide which adorable picture of him that I enjoy the best! I think kids are better with anybody besides mom or dad. They also know how to get what they want with grandparents too! Glad your mom and he have a great relationship!!

Shana said...

Love it. That is too funny. I can see it too.

Hahaha hehe! Oh man. Kids!!

Grandma looks not only fun, but buff!! I'm impressed that she can swing him around by his feet like that. Grandmas are awesome. :D

kc said...

I really do think I have the one kid on the planet who behaves better for me than grandma...

BUT, I CRACKED up at the ending of that story. Are you four?!?!? Totally funny!!!!!

Foursons said...

Bwhahahahahahahahaha! She is one smart woman, or she's raised a boy or two in her day. Probably both.

My kids behave better for grandma but I think it may be the teacher voice she uses when they're being punks. The teacher voice scares them straight.

I can.not.wait to be a grandma!!! and I will be one fun grandma!!! :)

Kids act better with grandparents...well...basically because they are not the parents! profound, I know.

Kmama said...

Oh my gosh. Obviously that woman knows about 4 year old boys. LOL

Susan said...

THAT is hilarious! And the pictures of Itty Bit's faces makes it even funnier! Love the picture of IB and Grandma in the bumper car: priceless!

Aunt Crazy said...

Terrible Twos got nothing on the Formidable Fours!

Tiffany said...

Ok. That. is. AWESOME. And what a good kid he was for immediately apologizing without being prompted. Angel-Boy for sure.

Emmy said...

Lol! Well at least he poked someone who was nice :)

And my kids behave better for their grandma Mimi as she is just so much fun and adores them.

City girl turned Country Girl said...

ROTFL!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness he is a hoot!!! Love that kid!

Kameron said...

At least he appologized! ha! If Natey was there he would have just repeated the word butt and started cracking up. Ahhhh, boys.

HeatherOz said...

OH my goodness! That boy has got to cool it with the comedy! Daisy is napping!!
Your mother should really read your PSA's!

Dyann said...

The best part is her question. Absolutely encapsulating.
