    A man came home from work late,

    tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door. SON: “Daddy, may I ask you a question?” DAD: “Yeah sure, what is it?” replied the man. SON: “Daddy, how much do you make an hour?” DAD: “That’s none of your business. Why do you ask...

    Love the Innocence of Children

    i think children have the right idea, they don't get bogged down by cynicism and negative thinking like adults, they just live for today as if the past/future never existed.

    My 8 month old loves to touch. She must hold my hand while eating, riding in the car or just because. She loves that closeness and I often find myself leaning over the crib, holding her tiny hand as she falls asleep. So very sweet and so innocent. She is a big chunky monkey doll...

    ...and the Crazy Stuff They Do

    I bought some air freshener, apples & cinnamon. Apparently my son saw the apple on the bottle and thought it would be a nice thing to try and feed his sister. I intercepted, or so I think, didn't smell anything on her breath but she was throwing up so not sure. That child...

    Want to Take a Shower Alone

    How come when they hear the shower on the toddler comes running in with his pants at his ankles and his shirt stuck on his big head? And then there's the infant who comes running with a bottle hanging from one hand and some sort of food item in the other as she tries to get her...

    My Freckles

    Laying here typing out stories and such with an infant behind me trying to fall asleep. I feel her little hand on my shoulder and try not to look as it will only get her going again. I feel little pinches and then her teeth and when I look to see what the heck she's doing I...

    Their World

    To look through their eyes at this world gives me a whole new perspective on life. So untouched by all the worlds ugliness it is refreshing to have a young child show you how they see things. It is an innocence that I can get in no other shape or form and it is beautiful. The...

    Not a Care In the World.

    When you become an adult your heart is filled with sadness and anger and bills LOL. When your a child you dont know what bills are. You aren't  quite sure yet what cruel is. It is easier to make a mistake as a child. Look into a childs eyes. YOu can always see a lil sparkle...

    So Much Honesty!

    Kids are so honest. And they look at everything like it's new to them, because it is. :-) They don't know or care about the problems going on a thousand miles away. They are much more focused on recognizing that Swiper the Fox is about to swipe Dora's map, which is what I really...

    Hatching Eggs

    My wife made this tree out of copper wire. Hanging from the tree are colored eggs that symbolize each member of our family. Well, my son was playing with his ball in the house, even though he knows he shouldn't. Next thing you know he comes up to my wife and says "Mommy, you...

    What Happen To Her Teeth

    When my second child was born, I was curious if my first born would see the differences in the newly born. So, I asked him "Does she have teeth?" "No, someone took it." Now how cute is that!

    I Miss My Innocence

    I just answered some question in the Q&A section, and it got me thinking about my childhood and the way I used to be as a child. When I think about it, it's so sad I want to cry. I used to be so adorable, so naive and innocent. I didn't understand the concept of greed and...

    Innocence Is Like Tooth Paste

    Images of Innocence

    What is innocence? Who among us, if anyone, is truly innocent in today's society? Amidst all the sexuality in media, there is still a desire to appear innocent. The products, attitudes and trends advertised today often target self-image and acceptance in society. I want to...

    The Things They Do...

    I feel that if a child does something silly it is because they are a child... innocent and carefree. I love this, embrace it and only wish I could live more as they do. This being said I wanted to start a group of things that they do... to make us laugh, cry and just remember the...

    Free From Terror

    I remember when I was a kid, and the world seemed so large and so exciting. I remember the happiness I felt in smelling the air, the wind through my hair brushing across my skin. The chasing of butterflies for no particular reason than the euphoria of the act itself. Oh the...

    If you don’t love/accept yourself it means

    you don’t have the love of Jesus towards you in you. You don’t have His love living in you and you don’t see yourself as a little child in the bosom of the Father. It means you’re fearing God as your enemy. It means you aren’t walking in joyful gratitude in the...

    The Monsters Came Back

    My son has been having these nightmares again and so tonight I asked what they've been about. "Monsters" he said. Well of course I can't find the "Monster Spray" so being that he likes to make guns with his hands that's what we did. We shot all the monsters...

    My one year old just found a candle in my room. It's in a cupcake tin and even looks a bit like one. It's wrapped in cellophane with a ribbon and she just keeps handing it to me going "MA MA MA" as she licks her lips and gives the chewing noise. This child is always...

    Re: Innocence of a Child

    They are carefree. Nothing to worry about. They just do whatever they like to do. It's so great. Love every moment of your child's life. I'm a new mother. I'm a proud mom too. I will be there for my little honey. She will grow up in a safe and secure home with a lot of love...
