Why we LOVE children....

  1. A small boy is sent to bed by his father.
    Five minutes later....
    "I'm thirsty. Can you bring me a drink of water?"
    "No. You had your chance. Lights out."
    Five minutes later.....
    "I'm THIRSTY. Can I have a drink of water??"
    "I told you NO!" If you ask again, I'll have to spank you!!"
    Five minutes later...... "Daaaa-aaaad....."
    "When you come in to spank me, can you bring a drink of water?"

    An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief,
    finally asked him, "How do you expect to get into Heaven?"
    The boy thought it over and said, "Well, I'll run in and out and in
    and keep slamming the door until St. Peter says,
    'For Heaven's sake, Dylan, come in or stay out!'"

    One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was
    tucking her son into bed. She was about to turn off the light when
    with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me
    The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug.
    "I can't dear," she said. "I have to sleep in Daddy's room."
    A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice:
    "The big sissy."

    When I was six months pregnant with my third child, my three year
    old came into the room when I was just getting ready to get into
    the shower. She said, Mommy, you are getting fat!"
    I replied, "Yes, honey, remember Mommy has a baby growing in her
    "I know," she replied, but what's growing in your butt?"

    True Story:

    My son was 4 years old. We were playing hide n go seek in the house on a rainy day. His turn to hide...mommy's turn to sit on the couch...

    So I go into my bedroom, sit on the couch, just about to get up and look for him....when......the closet door crashes open and out pops Nicolas saying "Look Mommy I'm out of the closet." and he is wearing one of my boas and leopard print fur covered slippers...

    I died laughing. Little cutie is 11 now and makes me laugh everyday....

    still giggling
