The child and his mother

A curious child asked his mother: “Mommy, why are some of your hairs turning grey?” The mother tried to use this occasion to teach her child: “It is because of you, dear. Every bad action of yours will turn one of my hairs grey!” The child replied innocently: “Now I know why grandmother has only grey hair on her head.” Can I help you?

As the new minister in town was walking down the street, he saw a little boy straining every muscle to reach the door-bell. He realised the little guy would never make it, although he admired the kid’s tenacity. So he walked up on the porch to help. “Here buddy, need some help?” He lifted the tyke who rang the bell. As he set the child down, the kid took off running and called back over his shoulder, “Run mister! The fat lady is opening the door!” -- Compiled by The Surfer
