Latest Brainy News
To those of use who have children in our lives, the lists below are something to make you
chuckle and think about:
1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching your
children to walk and
talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.
2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children.
3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.
4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for
word what you shouldn't have said.
5. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself
that there are children more awful than your own.
6. We childproofed our homes, but they are still getting in.
ADVICE FOR THE DAY: Be nice to your kids. They will choose your nursing
home one day.
AND FINALLY: If you have a lot of tension and you get a headache, do
what it says on the Aspirin bottle: "Take Two Aspirin" and
"Keep Away From Children"....8-)
You have a great week!
