Out Of The Mouths Of Babies

Another email from a friend:

Overheard at the daycare center:
1st little girl: Do you believe in the tooth fairy?
2nd little girl: No, I used to, but now I don't.  I think it's just a regular fairy who gets dressed up.

    One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed.  She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?" The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug.  "I can't dear," she said.  "I have to sleep in Daddy's room." A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice.  "The big sissy."

    Finding one of her students making faces at others on the playground, Ms. Smith stopped to gently reprove the child.  Smiling sweetly, the Sunday School teacher said, "Bobby, when I was a child, I was told that if I made ugly faces, it would freeze and I would stay like that." Bobby looked up and replied, "Well, Ms. Smith, you can't say you weren't warned."

    A four-year-old catholic boy was playing with a 4-year-old protestant girl in a plastic wading pool in the back yard.  They splashed a lot of water on each other; their clothes were soaking wet, so they decide to take off their clothes.  The little boy looked at the little girl and said, "Golly, I didn't know there was that much difference between catholics and protestants."
