From The Mouths Of Babes….

* “Close the curtains,” requested our 2 year old granddaughter, sitting in a pool of bright light. “The sun’s looking at me too hard.”
* My friend asked our grandson when he would turn 6. He replied, “When I’m tired of being 5.”
* Seeing her first hailstorm, Mary Sue, age 3, exclaimed, “Mommy, it’s raining dumplings!”
* As I frantically waved away a pesky fly with a white dishtowel, my granddaughter observed, “Maybe he thinks you’re surrendering.”
* A friend’s grandson, 4, was reading with his granddad about Adam and Eve. He asked, “Is this where God took out the man’s brain and made a woman?”😳
* Announcing to daughter Lori that her aunt just had a baby and it looked like her uncle, she said, “You mean he has a mustache?”
* When I asked our grandson if he could name the capital of Florida, he fired right back, “Capital F!”
* Shampooing my 4-year-old, I noted his hair was growing so fast he’d soon need it cut. He replied, “Maybe we shouldn’t water it so much.”
* My daughter told her 5-year-old that their van was going to be fixed. Instantly, the small fry assumed, “Oh, it’s going to the tire-o-practor?”
* Impressed by her 5-year-old’s vocabulary, my friend complimented the young scholar, who nonchalantly responded, “I have words in my head I haven’t even used yet.”
* His Mom informed her son, Brian, that she was going outside to get a little sun. “But Mommy, he gulped, “You already have a son. Me!”
* When our son asked about two look-alike classmates at school, we told him they were probably twins. The next day, he came home from school all bubbly and said, “Guess what! They are not only twins….they’re brothers!!” ​

Quotes of the Day

“A Stanford study suggests that social media is making us smarter. They examined

hundreds of essays written by college freshmen between 1917 and 2006. By 2016,
the papers were longer, better researched, and more complex. That’s because kids
in 2016 cut and pasted them from Wikipedia.” -Jimmy Kimmel

“NASA is sending chocolate to astronauts on the International Space Station. I guess
it makes sense I mean, it’s not like those guys have to watch their weight.
“Nope, still zero pounds.'” -Jimmy Fallon

“Psychologists now believe that adulthood begins at 25, not 18. They also believe that middle age begins the first time you eat at a Denny’s while sober.” -Conan O’Brien

“Year, (noun) A period of three hundred and sixty-five disappointments.”
–Ambrose Bierce’s DEVIL’S DICTIONARY

“Few things are harder to put up with than the
annoyance of a good example.” –Mark Twain
“I’m sick of following my dreams. I’m just going to ask them where they’re
going and hook up with them later.” -Mitch Hedberg




Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….

My family physician told me of an incident that actually happened to him back

in the early days of his practice. He said a woman brought her baby to see him,
and he determined right away that the baby had an earache. He wrote a prescription
for ear drops. In the directions he wrote, “Put two drops in right ear every four hours”
and he abbreviated “right” as an R with a circle around it. Several days passed, and
the woman returned with her baby, complaining that the baby still had an earache,
and his little behind was getting really greasy with all those drops of oil. The doctor
looked at the bottle of ear drops and sure enough, the pharmacist had typed
the following instructions on the label: “Put two drops in R ear every four hours.” 😱😁😎
