1. After putting her children to bed, a mother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin.
At last she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings.
As she left the room, she heard her three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was that?"
2. “Universe? It's where we are and it's everything all around us, it's the stars and beyond them to places that no one will ever find.”
She was five years old and she looked at me with grave concern.
“It can't be dad; the universe can't be that far away.”
“Well, it is sweetheart, at least most of it is, I promise you.”
“But what about mum: she said she was going there and if she does, well, we might never find her again.”
“But,” I tried to explain, “she can't go there; she's already there; all of us are. We are in the universe already, but we are just a small, very small and tiny part of it.”
Now a look of confusion came over her face.
“But mum said.” Then a silent pondering.
“What did she say darling, what did your mum say?”
“She said that she was going to the universe to study”
“Ah,” the penny dropped. “Sweetheart, I think I need to explain to you the difference between universe and university.”
3. One day, a little girl is sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly notices that her mother has several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looks at her mother and inquisitively asks, "Why are some of your hairs white, mom?"
Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white." The little girl thought about this revelation for a while, and then said, "Momma, how come *all* of grandma's hairs are white?"
4. A certain little girl, when asked her name, would reply, "I'm Mr. Sugarbrown's daughter." Her mother told her this was wrong, she must say, "I'm Jane Sugarbrown." When the minister spoke to her in Sunday School, and said, "Aren't you Mr. Sugarbrown's daughter?" She replied, "I thought I was, but mother says I'm not."
5. A little girl asked her mother, "Can I go outside and play with the boys?" Her mother replied, "No, you can't play with the boys, they're too rough."
The little girl thought about it for a few moments and asked, "If I can find a smooth one, can I play with him?"
