Teej Loves The Kids

Kids have THE BEST view point! So untainted. Very simplistic. As you live and grow older you experience more so you cant help the taint so much. But the simplistic part you can do something about. I've been told that the child in me is still there and still evident. I love to hear that. Check this out....

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?" The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think.....

"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love." Rebecca- age 8
----------------------------------------------------------------
"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth." Billy - age 4
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other." Karl - age 5
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your french fries without making them give you any of theirs." Chrissy - age 6
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired." Terri - age 4
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK." Danny - age 7
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss." Emily - age 8
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday." Noelle - age 7
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken." Elaine-age 5
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford." Chris - age 7
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day." Mary Ann - age 4
----------------------------------------------------------------
"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you." Karen - age 7
----------------------------------------------------------------
"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross." Mark - age 6
----------------------------------------------------------------
"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget." Jessica - age 8

Children are brilliant.
