Kids Say the Cutest Things
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."
A mother took her three-year-old daughter to
church for the first time.
The church lights were lowered, and
then the choir came down the aisle,
carrying lighted candles. All was quiet until the
little one started to sing in a loud voice,
"Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you..."
Nine-year-old Joey was asked by his mother
what he had learned in Sunday school.
"Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy
lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of
Egypt. When he got to the Red Sea,

He used his walkie-talkie to radio headquarters and call in an air
strike. They sent in bombers to blow up the bridge
and all the Israelites were saved."
"Now, Joey, is that REALLY what your

teacher did, you'd never believe it!"
A child came home from Sunday school and
told his mother that he had learned a new song
about a cross-eyed bear named Gladly. It took
his mother a while before she realized that the
hymn was really "Gladly The Cross I'd Bear,"
It was that time during the Sunday morning service for "the
children's sermon," and all the children were invited to
come forward. One little girl was wearing a
particularly pretty dress and, as she sat down, the pastor leaned
over and said to her, That is a very pretty dress.
Is it your Easter dress? The little girl replied,directly into the pastor's
clip-on microphone, "Yes, and my Mom
says it's a Bear to iron."
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 it would stay like that."
Bobby looked up and replied, "Well, Ms. Smith, you can't say you
