Kids On Love

Kids confidential opinions about love:
I'm not rushing into love, I'm finding fourth grade hard enough. (age 10)
Yesterday I kissed a girl in a private place. We were behind a tree. (age 7)

What people are thinking when they say I love you:

The person is thinking, "Yeah, I really do love him, but I hope he showers at least once a day. (age 9)
Some lovers might be real nervous so they are glad that they finally got it out and said it, and now they can go eat. (age 7)

Why love happens between certain people:

One of the people has freckles so he finds someone who has freckles too. (age 6)
No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deodorant are so popular. (age 9)
I think you're supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful. (age 8)

How to make love last:

Spend most of your time loving, instead of going to work.(age 8)
Don't forget your wifes name, that will mess up love. (age 8)
Be a good kisser, it might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash.(age 9)

Random thoughts:

Falling in love is like an avalanche where you have to run for your life. (age 9)
If you want to be loved by somebody who isn't already in your family, it doesn't hurt to be beautiful. (age 9)
When a person gets kissed for the first time they fall down and don't get up for at least an hour. (age 8)
To make a person fall in love with you, shake your hips and hope for the best. (age 8)

Just a quick note to wish everyone a fun and Happy Valentines Day !!

Valentine Friend

A Valentine friend is someone you choose

To share your life with you,

Someone who is always there,

Whether you’re happy or you’re blue.

With a Valentine friend, you can be yourself

You don’t need to pretend;

When you’re careful to choose a compatible match,

You create a perfect blend.
With you for my special Valentine friend,

My life is full and bright;

You bring contentment, joy and peace;

You’re my Valentine delight!

I recieved another email about Grandparents. It is the way Grandparents are seen by 8 year olds. this one is more for the Grandpa's. It's very cute. Enjoy!
-Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own. They like other people's.

- A grandfather is a man grandmother.

- When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.

- They show us and talk to us about the color of the flowers and also why we shouldn't step on "cracks."

- They wear glasses and funny underwear.

- They can take their teeth and gums out.

- They have to answer questions like "why isn't God married?" and "How come dogs chase cats?"

- When they read to us, they don't skip. They don't mind if we ask for the same story over again.

- Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don't have television, because they are the only grown ups who like to spend time with us.

- They know we should have snack-time before bedtime and they say prayers with us every time, and kiss us even when we've acted bad.

-Grandpa works in the shed all the time because he doesn't like broccoli either.

A Boy Needs A Grandpa

A boy needs a Grandpa...For man-to-man talks,

To go hand in hand

On companionable walks,

To fix up his toys

When they no longer go,

To tell him the things

Little boys want to know.

A boy needs a Grandpa...

To show him the way

To handle a puppy,

To teach him fair play.

To impart bits of wisdom

He's learned through the years,

That it's no disgrace

For a man to shed tears.

A boy needs a Grandpa...

To sit on his lap

And if no one is looking,

They take a wee nap,

Each wrapped in an aura

Of love and esteem,

Each smiling gently

At some special dream.
