    My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday.
    He asked me how old I was, and I told him, "62." He was quiet for a
    moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"

    After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old
    slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she
    heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew
    At last she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room,
    putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room,
    she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"

    A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own
    childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing
    made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our
    pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods.
    The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this in. At last she said, "I sure wish
    I'd gotten to know you sooner!"


    A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word
    processor. She told him she was writing a story.
    "What's it about?" he asked.
    "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."


    I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I
    decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color
    it was. She would tell me, and always she was correct. But it was fun
    for me, so I continued. At last she headed for the door, saying sagely,
    "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these yourself!"


    When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept
    the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects.
    Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy
    whispered, "It's no use, Grandpa. The mosquitoes are coming after us
    with flashlights."

    When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm
    not sure."
    "Look in your underwear, Grandma," he advised. "Mine says I'm
    four to six."

    A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother,
    "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The
    grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool.
    "That's interesting," she said, "How do you make babies?"
    "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'"

    Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant,"
    said a teacher.
    The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant."
    The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know
    what pregnant means?" she asked.
    "Sure," said the young boy confidently. "It means carrying a child."

    A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids
    home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat
    of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing
    the dog's duties. They use him to keep crowds back," said one youngster.
    "No, said another, "he's just for good luck."
    A third child brought the argument to a close. "They use the dogs", she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrant."

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.
    Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
