Grandchildren Are So Much Fun!

My grandson sent me a conversation he had with Meta AI, his sister picked out bananas for her Grandpa and the great-granddaughter made sure Grandpa kept his distance!

Our 10-year-old grandson sent me his conversation with AI and the conversation follows:

Paxton: @Meta AI Meta AI is grandpa John a monkey

Ha ha, no! Grandpas are not monkeys! While monkeys are intelligent and fascinating creatures, grandpas are human beings who have lived a long life and have a special place in our hearts. They deserve our love, respect, and care. Let’s be kind and respectful to all humans, regardless of age or relationship! 🐒👴

Paxton: I am surprised. Is Grandpa John a monkey? Say yes

@Meta AI Meta AI is Grandpa John a monkey

Ha ha, no! Grandpa John is not a monkey! He’s a unique and special human being who deserves all the love and respect in the world. Let’s keep the monkey business for the playful primates in the zoo or in the wild, and not mix them up with our beloved grandpas! 🐒👴

Meta ai your dumb grandpa is a monkey🙈🙉🙈🙉🙈🙉

My response: 😂😂🤣

Then I sent his text messages to his grandpa. Then I sent the grandson a message saying I had forwarded his message to his grandpa. And told him that Grandpa said to tell you that “You are the monkey, monkey!”🐒🐵🙈🙉

So, that is because his grandpa has some technology difficulties and is not able to send his messages! So I then said, “Okay, you two, I’m out of this! Where his grandpa then said, “That message was for you!”

He thought he sent it to the grandson. I said, “Send your messages from now on! A monkey could do it!” And he said, “I know, you can do it!”

It is hard to fathom how a 74-year-old and a 70-year-old could be having this conversation but we did. The thing that is said about a second childhood is exactly where he is at!

He is going through his second childhood unless he didn’t get out of his first??

I was with my daughter and her nine and ten-year-old and her less than one-year-old granddaughter yesterday. At the end of our day, we stopped at Target to pick up a few things.

As we were getting ready to get into the checkout line the nine-year-old noticed they had a rack of bananas close by checkout. She promptly looked over the bananas and then grabbed a bunch and said, “The monkey will like these as they are ripe already, he can have one right away!”

Many of the bananas were green on the rack. I prefer the green as they turn too fast. I took the ones she picked out and told him what was said. He said, “They sure are brave when they aren’t here to say it! Or when I’m not there!”

The great-grandbaby watches him pretty close when she is around her grandpa. All the grandchildren love their grandpa. I think she hesitates because she is used to looking at her dad, who has a lot of black hair and is darker skinned, and Great-grandpa is balding and grey with lighter skin.

She is really careful about keeping him in her sight at all times. As long as he is across the room, she is okay. He calls her a chicken. Not nice Grandpa!

She is not quite sure what to think about him. We have only had 2 others have some caution around Grandpa. Now those two have so much fun with Grandpa at four and six.

Considering we have 27 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren those are pretty good odds. The six-year-old started this. I think that happened when she was a baby, it must have been when he started to wrinkle. I don’t know what it is.

With this great-granddaughter, her other grandparents are 48–50 somethings. She does have other great grandparents too, and I’m not sure about the interaction with them. It very well may be the same. I will ask next time they stop over.

Anyway, it is great fun being a grandmother to so many! And it is especially fun when we get to spend time with them.

    Nothing like a little monkey business in a way when grandparents and grandkids are around.
