My friend is a school bus driver and one morning she picked up a kindergarten girl. The youngster couldn’t wait to show my friend that she had lost her first tooth. “Wow! That’s great,” the driver said. The little girl replied, “Yeah! It took me six years!”
My 4-year-old great-grandson recently welcomed a baby sister and shared these words of wisdom: “Females are girls and emails are boys.”

I went to my sister’s house about 10 years ago. Her granddaughter was about 5 years old and watching the hummingbirds around the feeder on the front porch. When she came inside, I asked her if she knew why hummingbirds hum. She put a finger on her cheek and leaned her head over for a little bit, then her eyes popped open and she said, “Yeah, ’cause they forgot the words!” My sister almost fell out of her chair she was laughing so hard.

My daughter was in the kitchen cutting up green bell peppers when one of them rolled onto the floor. My son was sitting there at the time and piped up, “Is that what they mean by fresh ‘ground’ pepper?” Who can argue with that?
