I absolutely adore these. Children bring a unique, obvious viewpoint to daily conversations that sometimes just flies right by adults. We’re too busy looking for deeper meanings in everyday conversations, or trying to “read between the lines” when we’re interacting with people that we forget to just listen. Hopefully these will make you smile! Too cute.
One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast to the others on her brunette head.
The little girl looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, “why are some of your hairs white, Mom?”
Her mother replied, “well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or be unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.”
The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, “Momma, how come ALL of grandma’s hairs are white?”
A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s work.
As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.” The teacher paused and said, “but no one knows what God looks like.”
Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, “they will in a minute.”
A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her 5 and 6-year-olds.
After explaining the commandment to “honor” thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, “Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?” Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, “Thou shall not kill.”
A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.
The little girl said, “when I get to heaven I will ask Jonah.”
The teacher asked, “what if Jonah went to hell?”
The little girl replied, “then you ask him.”
The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture.
“Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, ‘there’s Jennifer, she’s a lawyer,’ or ‘that’s Michael, he’s a doctor.'”
A small voice at the back of the room rang out, “and there’s the teacher, she’s dead.”
A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, “now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face..”
“Yes,” the class said.
“Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position, the blood doesn’t run into my feet?”
A little fellow shouted, “cause your feet aren’t empty.”
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: “take only ONE. God is watching.”
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.
A child had written a note, “take all you want. God is watching the apples.”
That is too funny! “He’s watching the apples!” Honestly, it sounds like something my kid would think of. He’s always looking for loopholes and ways to get around the rules. I’ll tell you what – it’s made me a LOT sharper – I pay attention to every word that I say now. Kids are clever little sneaks…if it means an extra cookie at lunchtime, they will stop at nothing to try and get that extra sugar rush!
