    Default The Way Children See Things!

    NUDITY
    I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a Woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark Naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the Back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!

    HONESTY
    My son Zachary, 4, came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me he'd Dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. So I fished it out and threw it in the Garbage. Zachary stood there thinking for a moment, then ran to my bathroom and came out with my toothbrush. He held it up and said with a charming Little smile, "We better throw this one out too then, 'cause it fell in the Toilet a few days ago.

    OPINIONS
    On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a Note from His mother. The note read, "The opinions expressed by this child are not Necessarily those of his parents."

    KETCHUP
    A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup to come out of the jar. During Her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. "It's the minister, Mommy," the child said to her mother. Then She added, "Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle."

    MORE NUDITY
    A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker Room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing Towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, ! ! ! "What's the matter haven't you ever seen a little boy before?"

    ELDERLY
    While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly Shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. The Various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and Wheelchairs, unfailingly intrigued her. One day I found her staring at a Pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the Inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, "The tooth Fairy will never believe this!"

    DRESS-UP
    A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her Dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives you a headache the
    Next morning."

    SCHOOL
    A little girl had just finished her first week of school. "I'm just wasting My time," she said to her mother. "I can't read, I can't write and they Won't let me talk!"

    BIBLE
    A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he fingered Through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked Up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been
    Pressed in between the pages. "Mama, look what I found", the boy called Out." What have you got there, dear?" With astonishment in the young boy's Voice, he answered, "I think it's Adam's underwear"

    Thanks Sandra,

    A wonderful diversion that reminded me innocence can still be found in the hearts and minds of our children.

    I love the tuxedo one.

    I heard something a while ago and I don´t know if it´s true, but it relates.

    A mother and her son go to the ATM so she can withdraw some cash. Knowing he will love the job, she tells the little boy to keep watch for strangers while she´s getting the money. He´s half guarding her and half keeping surveillance while she gets the money. As she puts the money in her purse, she asks him, "Is anyone watching us?" And he replies, "No Mom, do it again!"

    there's a magazine in Argentina, "Viva", issued with the Sunday paper "Clarín", that collects that kind of stories of very real, very natural things kids say... as Joel mentioned, it's refreshing to find there are still some innocence in the world! and it reminds you there was a time when we were amazed at the world...

    I looked up an example of the things published in "Viva", under the title "Palabras mayores" (good pun: we use the term to refer to wise or important words, and "mayores" also refers to the elderly, grown-up...).

    (Here's my translation of the story.)

    7-yrs-old años, from Rosario (Argentina)

    "Mom, what's the conscience?"
    "It's a little voice that tells you what's right and what's wrong."


    Sebi remained silent, pondering.
    "Mom," he came back. "And does that voice have a turning-off switch?"

    I remember one from the Viva magazine that I still remember because it's innocent and beautiful!

    The kid must have been 4 or so. He lived in the country and his grandparents lived in the city. Once he went to visit with his family. His grandad had a cage with a canary, hanging on a peg.
    The kid apparently had never seen it and kept staring at the bird. The grandad asked "Do you like it?" and the kid said "I do, but in my town the birds hang from the sky."
