Even Children Talk About Love…

by Larry James

Touching words from the mouth of babes…

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 what makes you smile when you’re tired.” ~ Terri – age 4

“It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need somebody to clean up after them!” ~ Lynette – age 9

“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 7

“Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.” ~ Emily – age 8

“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

“Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash.” ~ Erin – age 8

“Lovers will just be staring at each other and their food will get cold. Other people care more about the food.” ~ Brad – age 8

“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.” ~ Chris – age 7

Love is foolish… but I still might try it sometime.” ~ Floyd – age 9

“No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That’s why perfume and deodorant are so popular.” ~ Mae – age 9

“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

“It’s love if they order one of those desserts that are on fire. They like to order those because it’s just like how their hearts are – on fire.” ~ Christine – age 9

“Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash.” ~ Randy – age 8

“I’m not rushing into being in love. I’m finding fourth grade hard enough.” ~ Regina – age 10

“If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don’t want to do it. It takes too long.” ~ Leo – age 7

“It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I’m just a kid. I don’t need that kind of trouble.” ~ Kenny – age 7

“I think you’re supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn’t supposed to be so painful.” ~ Harlen – age 8

“You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, cause she’ll want to have videos of the wedding.” ~ Jim – age 10

“It’s never to late to be a kid again!” ~ Larry James – age ?? 😉
