Kids Know What Love Means

  1. Kids Know What Love Means

    I thought this was really cute and wanted to pass it on...


    A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8
    year-olds, "What does love mean?"

    The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have
    imagined.
    See what you think:


    "When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her
    toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when
    his hands got arthritis too. That's love." - Rebecca - age 8

    "When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know
    that your name is safe in their mouth." - Billy - age 4

    "Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and
    they go out and smell each other."- Karl - age 5

    "Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries
    without making them give you any of theirs." - Chrissy - age 6

    "Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
    Terri - age 4

    "Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before
    giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK." - Danny - age 7

    "Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing,
    you
    still want to be together and you talk more. My mommy and Daddy are like
    that. They look gross when they kiss." - Emily - age 8

    "Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening
    presents and listen." - Bobby - age 5

    "If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who
    you
    hate." - Nikka - age 6

    "There are two kinds of love. Our love. God's love. But God makes both
    kinds
    of them." - Jenny - age 4

    "Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it
    everyday."
    Noelle - age 7

    "Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends
    even after they know each others well." - Tommy -age 6

    "During my piano recital, I was on a stage and scared. I looked at all the
    people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one
    doing that. I wasn't scared anymore." - Cindy - age 8

    "My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else kissing me
    to
    sleep at night." - Clare - Age 5

    "Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken." - Elaine - age
    5

    "Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is
    handsomer than Robert Redford." - Chris - age 8

    "Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all
    day." - Mary Ann - age 4

    "I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes
    and
    has to go out and buy new ones." - Lauren - age 4

    "I let my big sister pick on me because my Mom says she only picks on me
    because she loves me. So I pick on my baby sister because I love her." -
    Bethany - age 4

    "When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars
    come
    out of you." - Karen - age 7

    "Love is when mommy sees daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's
    gross." - Mark - age 6

    "You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean
    it, you should say it a lot. People forget." Jessica - age 8

    Sundowner, Isn't that the sweetest thing! Your son sounds adorable!

    Beachnurse, I loved those antics said by kids! I love to watch Bill Cosby's show "Kids Say the darndest things". Those kids crack me up.

    I miss my three girls being small. Now, I'm missing them being big, and all nine of my grandbabies. We just live too far apart right now! They are all my valentines!

    Here is a few kiddie laughs for you moms:

    "It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows." -- ERMA BOMBECK :chuckle


    "The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy." -- SAM LEVENSON
    (The "common enemy" is "the parents"...like Jim Carey's "the Claw") :roll :chuckle


    "If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend whom you hate." -- NIKKA (age 6)


    "Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well." -- TOMMY (age 6)

    Thanks Beachnurse!
    Sometimes I think that when looking for words of wisdom, we should turn to a child!
    Sundowner, what a great son u have. I am reminded of the time I found a lovenote written by my younger sister when we were kids. the note said " Dennis, meet me in the playground, I want to show you something on my arm" later I asked her what it was on her arm that she wanted to show him...it was a mole. when i asked her why the mole, she replied" Mommy says it's a beauty mark... now he has to like me"

    OH NETTY!
    THAT IS PRICELESS!!!
    That definatly beats my little sister's idea that placing perfume under her nose would make her breath smell sweet!
