Why we love children.....
> 1) NUDITY
> I was driving with my three young children one warm summer
>evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved.
>She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my
>5-year-old shout from the back seat, " Mom! That lady isn't wearing a
> 2) OPINIONS
> On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a
>note from his mother. The note read, "The opinions expressed by this
>child are not necessarily those of his parents."
> 3) KETCHUP
> A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar.
>During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter
>to answer the phone. " My mom can't come to the phone to talk to you
>right now. She's hitting the bottle."
> 4) MORE NUDITY
> A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the
>women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks,
>with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy
>watched in amazement and then asked, "What's the matter, haven't you
>ever seen a little boy before?"
> 5) POLICE # 1
> While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary
>school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking
>up and down at my uniform, she asked, "Are you a cop?" "Yes," I
>answered and continued writing the report. "My mother said if I ever
>needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?" "Yes, that's
>I told her. "Well, then," she said as she extended her foot toward me,
>"would you please tie my shoe?"
> 6) POLICE # 2
> It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front
>of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was
>barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me "Is that a dog you got
>back there?" he asked. "It sure is," I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked
>at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, "What'd he
> 7) ELDERLY
> While working for an organization that delivers lunches to
>elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon
>rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old
>age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found
>her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced
>myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and
>whispered, "The tooth fairy will never believe this!"
> 8) DRESS-UP
> A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When
>she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't
>wear that suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives
>you a headache the next morning "
> 9) DEATH
> While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our
>minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar
>wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead
>robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured
>a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the
>disposal of the deceased. The minister's son was chosen to say the
>appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of
>what he thought his father always said: "Glory be unto the Faaather,
>and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he goooes."
> 10) SCHOOL
> A little girl had just finished her first week of school. "I'm
>just wasting my time," she said to her mother. "I can't read, I can't
>write and they won 't let me talk!"
> 11) BIBLE
> A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as
>he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the
>Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old
>leaf that had been pressed in between the pages. "Mama, look what I
>found," the boy called out. "What have you got there, dear? " With
>astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, "I think it's
