Daily Joke: New Grandparents Were Anxious to Meet Their Granddaughter

People don't always do things for the reasons we think, and in today's daily joke, grandparents eventually got to the funny bottom of a situation they found very confusing.

Phil and Margaret became grandparents for the first time, and the pair could hardly wait to see their grandchild. They respectfully waited until their daughter-in-law came out of the hospital before visiting, but it only took one look via video chat for them to fall in love.

A few minutes after their daughter-in-law welcomed them into her home, Margaret and Phil started feeling fidgety. Even though she was pleasurable company, as usual, they didn't go over there to talk to her, they wanted to see their granddaughter.

"So, when can we see baby Lola?" Margaret pleaded with her daughter in law, who barely finished saying, "In a little while," before she got lost on another train of thought.

Another couple of minutes passed, and already barely touching the edge of his seat, Phil couldn't keep quiet anymore either. "My dearest daughter-in-law, when can we see our first grandchild?"

Shifting in her seat slightly, the daughter-in-law merely offered, "When she starts crying you can spend as much time with her as you like."

Even though the words were comforting, they didn't quite feel comforted. So, Margaret asked her daughter-in-law, "Why on earth do we have to wait until she starts crying?"

The daughter-in-law started looking like she sat on ants again before she explained hesitantly, "Well, I put her down somewhere earlier, and I can't remember where!"

Sleep-deprived parents to newborns are known to be forgetful when it comes to everything besides their new bundle of joy, but do you have a similar funny story to share?

But as we know, the parents' journey with their child starts in the womb, and in a related daily funny, a Lamaze class didn't quite go according to plan.

As a couple learned more about ways to keep pain under control during labour, including proper breathing techniques, the husband, who attended the class with his wife, had the one question that could derail the whole class.
