THE WAY CHILDREN SEE THINGS
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.’
TOMATO SAUCE: A woman was trying hard to get the tomato sauce to come out of the bottle. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. ‘It’s the minister, Mummy,’ the child said to her mother. Then she added,

ELDERLY: While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly people, a woman used to take her 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 the woman found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As she braced herself for the inevitable barrage of questions, her daughter 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,

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. ‘Mummy, look what I found’, the boy called out.’ What have you got there, dear?’ With astonishment the young boy answered,
‘I think it’s Adam’s underwear.’
