Why we love our children

Why we love children...


I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, 'Mum, that lady isn't wearing a seat belt!'


On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, 'The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents ..'


A woman was trying hard to get the sauce out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone.. 'Mummy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now She's hitting the bottle.

A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, 'What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before?'


While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, 'Are you a cop? Yes,' I answered and continued writing the report. 'My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?' 'Yes, that's right,' I told her. 'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward me, 'would you please tie my shoe?'


It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my canine partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. 'Is that a dog you've got back there?' he asked.

'It sure is,' I replied.

Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, 'What'd he do?


While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!'


A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.'

'And why not, darling?'

'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.'


While walking along the footpath in front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead bird. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton wadding, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased.

The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father always said: 'Glory be unto the Father, and unto the Son, and into the hole he goes.' (I want this line used at my funeral!)


A little girl had just finished her first week of school. 'I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother. 'I can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk!'


A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages.

'Mumma, look what I found,' the boy called out.

'What have you got there, dear?'

With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think it's Adam's underwear!'

After birth abortion

As many of you may know, two scientists, excuse me: two "bioethicists" came out with a paper about a week or so ago stating that it is morally ok to perform after birth abortions.


So since they've open the flood gates so to say; let's list all the groups that are "not moral beings".

We've already got:
1. babies in the womb
2. babies right out of the womb

Now let's add:
3. all children, after all society does not consider them to be "morally able to make decisions" until they hit that magic number 18.

4. Anyone who cheats on their spouse. We all know that is not morally right; so anyone who does cheat shows they are not "moral beings"

5. Anyone who commits murder or fraud.

6. Child abusers

7. Anyone who abuses another

8. All politicians, since we all know they keep voting themselves more money when we "people" are struggling and that is definitely unethical and immoral

9. Let's not forget all the mentally handicapped, since they cannot make moral decisions

10. and our older ones, since many of them have Alzheimer's and dementia and thus cannot be "moral beings"

11. Anyone who allows a god/goddess or other "higher power" to decide their morals for them...after all, if they have to have someone else give them morals, then they cannot be moral persons.

12. Any atheists because we know that "they" don't have any morals at all

13. All homosexuals because we all "know" it's wrong to have sex with someone of your sex

14. All preachers who do not practice what they preach

15. Is anyone left? ah yes, one more

16. Anyone who believes any of this crap can go to number one and be first in line to be aborted

When value is removed from life, the living soul becomes less than a person, that makes it very easy to "abort" / "delete" / "remove" them.

Some people say we are judged as a society by how we treat the helpless and innocent ones in our society.

Northern Mockingbirds

For over a week I was listening to the Male mockingbirds prepare their songs on campus. Hearing the many different males competing with their myriads of vocal renditions.

Well on this particular morning, I actually was honored to see a female check out one of these males. Oh she played coy and would flutter from limb to limb, just always slightly out of his reach...but he would still follow and do the deep throat sound that was more of a grunt as he would fluff his wings out slightly from his body and ruffle his back and neck feathers making himself both look bigger but also "better" than all those "other males".

They totally ignored me, who was no more than five feet away, frozen in movement and watching this courtship that few humans actually get to see.

Desperately wishing for my camera. Cursing myself for forgetting, while still being so determined to burn it all in my memory.

In the end, she did not find him worthy of being her mate and she flew away. He very briefly hung his head but then shook it off, knowing he did his best and flew back to the tippy top of the tree and began his courtship "come hither" song once more.
