WHY WE LOVE CHILDREN

It was that time during the Sunday morning service, for the children's story. All the children were invited to come forward. One little girl was wearing a particularly pretty dress and, as she sat down, the minister leaned over and said, "That is a very pretty dress. Is it your Easter dress?' The little girl replied, directly into the minister's clip-on microphone, "Yes, and my mom says it's a bitch to iron!"

One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of Chicken Little to her class. She came to the part of the story where Chicken Little tried to warn the farmer ... she read ...and so Chicken Little went up to the farmer and said, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!" The teacher paused and asked the class, "and what do you think the farmer said?" One little girl raised her hand and said, "I think he said: "Holy Cow a talking chicken!" The teacher was unable to continue the story for the next ten minutes.

Have a good week and Happy Thanksgiving - MB
