Grayson- 4 1/2 yrs

A couple of Grayson funnies! - 4 1/2 yrs old

Salina said he is now able to write his name and getting pretty good at it.  But when he sees a LETTER that is in his name, for example a 'G' he says, "Look Mom, that NUMBER is in my name".  ; )))  Aww what the heck, letters, numbers...

And another one (by the way for those who do not know Salina is pregnant, 5th grand baby for us!!)  and she and Joe are not quite agreeing yet on names. 

So Salina whispers to  Grayson, "Go tell Dad you like the name (her pick) for the baby".

 So Grayson runs to Joe, "Dad, I like the name ... [long pause] ..."  And then yells back to Salina, "Mom what was it again?"

Oh well Salina, it was a good plan in theory!!

Matthew - 10 yrs old

Oct 29, 2012 Matthew and Braeden walk home together every day. They are stuck like glue! Matthew called Jennifer Lawler (mom) today from school. Matthew: Mom I am going to stay after school today. Jennifer: Ok, why? Matthew: To do tutoring with Ms. Rankin Jennifer: Oh okay, well you have a good day. Matthew: Ok [silence] Jennifer: Ok ... well I will see you later then. Matthew: [silence] [long sigh ] [shuffling] Jennifer: What is wrong Matthew? Matthew in a defeated tone because he has not been able to figure this out says, "What am I supposed to do with Braeden?" Jennifer very sweetly says: Just send him on home Matthew, you do not have to worry about that. We have always suspected Matthew took his big brother duties serious but he proved it today! ; ))

Matthew- 10yrs old

Oct 20, 2012 Matthew (10yrs old) spent the night with a friend and went to the Valley game. When Jennifer picked him up this was the conversation. Matthew: If anyone asks I have a girlfriend now. Jennifer: You do? What is her name? Matthew: (Long Pause) ummm I don,t know. Jennifer: Well what did she look like? Matthew: She had a ponytail and a blue shirt. Jennifer: Why do you like her? Matthew: Becaus e she can run fast. There were 2 girls that wanted to go out with me. And there was one that was in the 11th grade. Jennifer: WHAT? Matthew: Or maybe she was 11. Oh don't ya miss the time when decisions were so simple!!

Grayson- 4 1/2 yrs old

Oct 12, 2012 Our grandson Grayson is in Pre-K, and they are learning to write their names so they sign in every day. Grayson got frustrated one day and said "Me can't do this". So to correct his grammar the teacher said "I can't do this". And Grayson said "Me neither!" LOL! He is so cute!!

Braeden- 9yrs old

Oct 2, 2012 My grandson Braeden is 9. He can analyze and evaluate things said and done with such speed, makes me think of those chippers. You put the tree branches in and immediately it spits out the chips. It is hard to be a Zabielski around him ... I mean the box story my dad always told would never work with him. It would not even take him a second to say, "But you just raised your arm up high." Things must make sense to him or they will not fly! He reminds me a lot of my nephew Scott when he was young. Yesterday he was in one of his moods, everything was wrong. Jennifer told him to stop being a negative noodle but he kept on. So she said "Braeden I am going to negative your mouth and send you to your room for the evening!" As she walked away he slumped in the chair and under his breath said, "I don't even know how you could negative a mouth." Cannot slip anything by him!
