An acquaintance of mine who is a physician told this story about her then 
four-year-old daughter.  On the way to preschool, the doctor had left her
stethoscope on the car seat, and her little girl picked it up and began
playing with it.  Be still, my heart, thought my friend, my daughter wants
to follow in my footsteps! Then the child spoke into the instrument:

"Welcome to McDonald's.  May I take your order?"


A certain little girl, when asked her name, would reply, "I'm Mr.Sugarbrown's 
daughter." Her mother told her this was wrong, she must say, "I'm Jane 
Sugarbrown." The minister spoke to her in Sunday School, and said, "Aren't you 
Mr. Sugarbrown's daughter?" She replied, "I thought I was, but mother says I'm 


A little girl asked her mother, "Can I go outside and play with the boys?"

A boy had reached four without giving up the habit of sucking his thumb,

at bedtime she repeated it after her mother.  One night she said she was ready 
to solo.  The mother listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word,
right up to the end of the prayer. "Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, 
"but deliver us some e-mail, Amen." 


A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way
to church service, "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?"  One 
bright little girl replied, "Because people are sleeping." 


A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fascination, he looked 
at the old pages as he turned them.  Then something fell out of the Bible
and he picked up and looked at it closely.  It was an old leaf from a tree
that has been pressed in between pages.

"Momma, look what I found," the boy called out.

"What have you got there, dear?" his mother asked.

With astonishment in the young boy's voice he answered: "It's Adam's
