Love is in the Air

I came across this again recently…and I LOVE it with all my heart! 🙂
What Love means to 4-8 year old kids …
‘When my grandmother
got arthritis , she couldn’t bend over and paint
her toenails anymore.. So my
grandfather does it for her all the time , even
when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.

Rebecca- age 8

When someone loves you , the
way they say your name is different.
You just know that your name
is safe in their mouth.’

Billy – age 4

 

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume
and a boy puts on shaving cologne
and they go out and smell each other.’

Karl – age 5

Love is when you go out to eat
and give somebody most of your French fries
without making them give you any of theirs.’

Chrissy – age 6

 

‘Love is what makes you smile
when you’re tired.’

Terri – age 4

 

‘Love is when my
mommy makes coffee for my daddy and
she takes a sip before giving it to him , to
make sure the taste is OK.’

Danny – age 8

 

‘Love is what’s in the room with
you at Christmas if you stop opening presents
and just listen.’

‘If you want to learn to love better ,
you should start with a friend who you hate. ‘

Nikka – age 6

this planet)

 

‘Love is when
you tell a guy you like his shirt,
then he wears it everyday.’

Noelle
– age 7

 

‘Love is like a little
old woman and a little old man who are still
friends even after they know each other so
well.’

Tommy – age 6

 

‘During my piano recital , I was
on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the
people watching me and saw my daddy waving and
smiling.

He was the only one doing that.
I wasn’t scared anymore.’

Cindy – age 8

 

‘My mommy loves me
more than anybody
You don’t see anyone else
kissing me to sleep at night.’

Clare – age 6

‘Love is when Mommy
gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.’

Elaine-age 5

 

‘Love is when Mommy
sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and
still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.’

Chris – age 7

 

‘Love is when your puppy licks
your face even after you left him
alone all day.’

Mary Ann – age 4

 

‘I know my older sister loves me
because she gives me all her old clothes
and has to go out and buy new ones.’

Lauren – age 4

 

‘When you love somebody , your
eyelashes go up and down and little
stars come out of you.’ (what an image)

Karen – age 7

‘Love is when Mommy
sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think
it’s gross..’

Mark – age 6

 

‘You really shouldn’t say
‘I love you’ unless you mean it.
But if you mean it,
you should say it a lot. People forget.’

Jessica – age 8


And the final one:

The winner was a four year old child
whose next door neighbor was an
elderly gentleman who had recently lost his
wife.

Upon seeing the man cry , the
little boy went into the old
gentleman’s yard , climbed onto his
lap , and just sat there.

When his
Mother asked what he had said to the
neighbor , the little boy said ,

‘Nothing , I just helped him cry’

 

 

Don’t you just love it?? I know! Me, too!!! This makes my heart super-happy! 🙂
