Funny Friday

Watching a grandmother read to her grandchild should be like watching paint dry, but in this case, it is not. I think I would like to share a Scotch whisky with her.

  1. I gave that book to a blog friend. And I hope she liked it as much as grandma.

    1. It is quite a laugh EC. I haven't come across it. Bit of a tongue twister read too.

  5. I must admit... it is much more fun reading books with grandchildren than it was with my own children. In fact everything is more fun :)

    1. Hels, while not quite all care and no responsibility, I am sure you feel more relaxed now.

  7. I haven't seen that book before even though I've read hundreds of kids books during my teaching years. It is hilarious watching grandma read it.Thanks for the laugh.

    1. This has to be one of the funniest book readings I have ever seen. But the kid obviously didn't think so. Great post.

    2. Gee Diane and Bill. I always watch Youtube vids a few times before I publish them and I really wondered if this was actually so funny. Obviously it was. Thanks.

  8. Heck, that's funny! I started laughing when she did and now I'm coughing so hard. Where's my puffer?......deep breath, and another. I'll be fine in a minute. Wait until the baby is a toddler and laughs along with grandma. That'll be even funnier.

    1. River, yes, she should repeat it a few years later when the child understands a little. I am truly surprised at how funny people have found the clip.

  9. I am pleased to see babies being read to. It lays a solid foundation for them wanting to learn for themselves. My niece doesn't read, hasn't touched a book since leaving school many, many years ago and I keep sending the grand-nephew books for Christmas and Birthdays in hopes of sparking an interest there.

    1. That is not good. Both you and I know the importance of getting a good grounding in reading. I fear for my twin toddler nieces, that they are not being read to. I can't remember if I was read to when I was young. Were you?

    2. With mum and dad not reading much beyond the newspaper, I'd say no, but I learned at age 3 by listening to my sister trying to learn when she was seven and haven't stopped yet. I read to my kids until they could read for themselves and they in turn read to their own kids, with my eldest daughter starting the bedtime ritual when each child was barely a month old.

    3. River, you gave your children a good foundation for literacy and it seems you set things up for the future. Well done you.

  10. That reminds me that once when Toby was a baby and I had no book around me, I read him the manual of my bread baking machine. He fell asleep right away !

    2. My Grandmother had a London accent :)

    3. Yeah Lady J, except there is no London accent really. There is a posh London Accent and variations through to Cockney.

  12. Loved this one Andrew 😀😀 I agree that it's so important to start reading to children an early age, so many brilliant books out there.
    P.s. the football final was exciting yeh? 😉

    1. Grace, somewhat better books perhaps than the mostly English books we grew up with. The football? Here is what I wrote that evening. "I must say, it was a rather exciting and close match. I was so excited, I went to my bedroom and read a little Anna Karenina . But hey, I did get up to watch the last ten minutes."

  13. I do try and read to my grandson when he visits, but he doesn't sit still for more than a few minutes, lol.
