Kids and Elderly

An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was
sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the zoo. Lots of children  were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist who was  decorating them with tiger paws.

"You've got so many freckles, there's no place to  paint!" a girl in
the line said to the little fella. Embarrassed, the little  boy dropped his
head. His grandmother knelt down next to him "I love your  freckles. When I was a
little girl I always wanted freckles, she said, while tracing her finger across
the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful!" 
The boy looked up,  "Really?" 
"Of course,"  said the grandmother. "Why, just name me one thing
that's prettier than  freckles."  The little  boy thought for a moment, peered intensely into his grandma's face,
and softly  whispered, "Wrinkles."

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!"  
My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, Grandma, do you know  how you and God are alike?"
I mentally polished my halo while I asked, "No, how  are we alike?"
"You're  both old," he said.
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 
A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments.  
They were ready to discuss the last one. The teacher  asked if anyone could tell her what it was. Susie raised her hand, stood tall,  and quoted,
"Thou shall not  take the covers off thy neighbor's wife."
Our  five-year-old son Mark couldn't wait to tell his friend about the movie we had  watched on television, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."
The scenes with the  submarine and the giant octopus had kept him wide-eyed.  
In the middle of the telling, my husband interrupted  Mark, "What caused the submarine to sink?"
With a look of incredulity Mark replied, "Dad, it  was the 20,000
A second grader came home from school and said to her mother,  
"Mom, guess what? We learned how to make babies  today."
The mother, 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."  
(Why wouldn't an English  teacher love that one?)
"  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
A grandmother was surprised by her 7 year old grandson one morning.  
He had made her coffee. She drank what was the  worst cup of coffee in her life.
When she got to the bottom, there were three of those little green Army men in the cup. She said "Honey, what are these  army men doing in my coffee?"

Her grandson said, "Grandma, it says on TV, "The  best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup!"


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."
