    Celebrating Childhood Innocence

    Post  ameliorate on Sat Aug 02, 2014 10:38 pm

    Here are some sweet/amusing childhood sayings - please feel free to add to them and share your similar experiences too.

    Misquoted nursery rhymes
    "Little Miss Muppet,
    sat on her tuffet,
    eating her curtain away..."

    "Mary mary, quiet and hairy..."

    Misquoted Lord's Prayer:
    Our father
    watch out in heaven

    General Remarks
    "When baby won't stop crying, mummy puts a plug in his mouth."
    "Vicars don't laugh much because Jesus didn't tell many jokes."
    "Why don't they give the footballers a ball each, then they wouldn't have to fight over it"
    "Mum, if that stuff on your face is to make you more beautiful, when does it start to work?"
    "Sometimes I help mummy work - I stay out of her way."
    "When mummy wears a dress, she looks like a real person."

    Eulogy for a hamster
    Ashes to ashes,
    dust to dust,
    for richer for poorer
    may the force be with you
    because you're worth it
    Amen and out.

    Thanks.  Here are a few more (that might appeal)

    On the subject of love....

    "When a person gets kissed for the first time, they fall down, and they don't get up for at least an hour." -- Wendy, age 8

    "Lovers will just be staring at each other and their food will get cold. Other people care more about the food." -- Brad, age 8

    "Married people usually look happy to talk to other people." -- Eddie, age 6

    "Don't forget your wife's name. That will mess up the love." -- Erin, age 8

    Ditto, except I called my husband the name of an ex boyfriend. He wasn't too pleased about it either. :giggles:

    I enjoy listening to the words that come out of the mouths of babes. They never fail to raise a smile, whether watching them on TV, or reading them.

    I can't wait to hear them from my grandchildren.

    Yes Skye....their view of the world is both interesting and amusing.

    Here are some overheard ones....

    "Grandpa - was the world in black and white when you were alive?"  :faint: 


    When I called home one day, my six year old son answered the phone. "Hello," he said, panting a little. I said, "Hi, Nick. Wow, you sound out of breath." He replied, "No, I have more."

    Overheard in a shopping centre - parent to sulky child..."now what's the magic word?" "now!"

    It was early evening and very windy.  I overheard a young boy tell his mother


    "we'd better tie the moon down so the wind won't blow it away."
