> >---------------------------------------------------------------------------
> >After the christening of his baby brother in church, Jason sobbed all the

> >---------------------------------------------------------------------------
> >I had been teaching my 3-year-old daughter, Caitlin, the Lord's Prayer for
>several evenings at bedtime, she would repeat after me the lines from the

Kids Ideas About Love:

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, What does love mean? The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think?

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 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 Roberts 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 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 what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen, -Bobby age 7

If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate. -Nikka age 6

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 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. -Becky age 3

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

I let my big sister pick on me because my Mom says she only picks on me because she loves me. So I pick on my baby sister because I love her. -Bethany age 4

When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you. -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

A first-grade teacher collected well-known proverbs. She gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. Their insight may surprise you.

Never underestimate the power of...termites.

You can lead a horse to water

Don't bite the hand that...looks dirty.

No news is... impossible.

A miss is as good as a... Mr.

Love all, trust... me.

The pen is mightier than the... pigs.

An idle mind is... the best way to relax.

Where there's smoke there's... pollution.

A penny saved is... not much.

Don't put off till tomorrow put on to go to bed.

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and... you have to blow your nose.

None are so blind as... Stevie Wonder.

Children should be seen and not... spanked or grounded.

If at first you don't succeed... get new batteries.

You get out of something what you... see pictured on the box.
