This weekend we finally were able to see our grandson.  Sweet hubby and I have not seen him for over a month due to my foot being broken and the fact that we came down with some kind of horrible virus that lasted a little over three weeks.

Anyway, he spent the weekend with us and we had a blast.  Grandma wanted to treat him so I took him to Toys R Us.  You know......the toy store that has EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD THAT MAKES A SOUND OR LIGHTS UP!!! I asked him what he wanted to get; and he told me he wanted a new book.
I was very impressed that he would want a book out of everything he could have chosen.
"Yeah, Grandma, I want "The Diarrhea of a Wimpy Kid".  "What", I said.  He repeated the same thing again.  Ok......I'm thinking, I know little boys are obsessed with bodily functions so maybe this book is out there.  How would I know??

We get to the store, he runs right to the book section............and this is what he finds!!!!

I thought I would pee my pants, I laughed so hard. I LOVE my Grandson!!!

Blessings dear friends.....have a great week!!



  1. That is the cutest thing ever Jo! I am still laughing, becuse my oldest grandson also reads the Diary series, so I already knew what was coming...just precious aren't they? xoxo Christel

  2. Oh he is a little doll and how funny. I know you and Gramps had the bestest time. I have a nine year old great grandson, Kane who favors your sweet boy and wonder if he also reads the diarrhea series:) Too funny and if you don't mind sharing..........what photo program do you use to get the round backgrounds on black? They are just stunning. Hugs, Mollye

  3. What a cute grandson. This story is PRICELESS! Great that he wanted a book and how fun to spend treasured time together. Happy memories...

  4. What a cute little boy and he loves to read!
    That's so wonderful. I love his pronunciation! Hilarious! Only out of the mouth of babes.

    Totally agree- finding what you love is so important.

    Love the Diary of a Whimpy kid, my kids loved those books, and i think a movie is coming out too.

  7. Too funny! I was thinking it must be a new Captain Underpants book or something... I love it! So adorable. He might not think it's so funny in about five years or so, but it's stilll hilarious!

    Have a wonderful week!
