From the lips of 6 year old GS: "The velociraptors wreaked haddock in Jurassic Park!"

Sounds a bit fishy to me! smile

Read in the paper that some poor person was “incubated because of breathing difficulties “!

My history teacher friend frequently got essays about the duck of Normandy.

One of my twin GD patted my tummy and said you have a big belly nanny and then. Did my daddy come out of there? I am now thinking I need to diet! Children do not mince their words.

When my Niece was 5 she patted her Granddads tummy and said, "you've had too many dinners"

We were getting dressed in the swimming pool when my 5 year old GD said 'why are your boobs away down there?' I made a very off the cuff reply which she found acceptable but I've never forgotten this and it always makes me smile. There was me thinking I was holding my own (so to speak!) in that department. Dream on!

DGS told me he'd been studying the facts of life for two whole years. Who'd have thought there was so much to it!

My late mother-in-law, when hearing about a trek the Dalai Lama had made, said "Oh that poor llama, having to walk all that way"

I have a store of these from my teaching days but a favourite is
"When Queen Victoria was a baby George the Turd was on the throne"

My friends grandson (9) was learning about penises and Chinas. Didn’t make much sense until she realized he meant vaginas!

A tad off piste but well recall working in a school where many kids were not encouraged at home to further their education.
Would not be allowed now but I instigated Saturday morning detention. Of course only a few would turn up until word went around it "wasn't school" it was fun.
We built a pond, a veg. patch, etc.
Still in contact with many who did go on to be very successful in their chosen field .
That certainly makes me smile.

Reminds me of my 4 year old g/grandson when I last saw him a few months ago in the flesh. He came and looked closely at my face and said very seriously"Ma I think you ought to go to the doctors to ask him to get rid of the lines on your face" He meant my wrinkles and at the age of 91 I have quite a few. LOL
