Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

Have you ever had the opportunity to spend time with a child?  Have you had the opportunity to observe them?  Do you just wonder how their minds work?  There is such an innocence - such truth.  They're so precious and honest.

I'm fortunate to have such sweet, innocent, honest little ones in my life right now.  If you're not as lucky, I suggest trying to find friends with children, nieces or nephews, or volunteer in some kind of work with children.  They are wonderful teachers.  They give hope for the future.  They help us remember the joy and magic of childhood.

On Valentine's Day, my six year old grandson's kindergarten teacher was explaining the upcoming school schedule.  She told her class that originally they were scheduled to be off school on Friday and Monday.  She reminded them that they had a snow day so now they were only going to be off school on Friday.  They would have to go to school on Monday as a MAKE UP DAY.  My grandson walked up to the teacher with a concerned look on his face.  The teacher asked him what was the matter.  He asked, "What are the boys going to do?"  It took me a minute to "get" it.  Once I did, I couldn't stop laughing.

Oh the joy, magic, wonder, truth and innocence of a child!  There's nothing like it to brighten up your life.

Love,  Paula

PS.  For those of you who don't "get it", when the teacher said MAKE UP DAY, he thought she meant putting on make up.  That was fine for the girls, but what were the BOYS going to do???
