November 11, 2008 1:40am CST
I'm a single mom and 2 years ago. My boyfriend left me. My son tried to comfort me by saying, " It's okay mommy, he left you because your not VERY beautiful, your just pretty". I laughed out loud. A friend of mine who share the same apartment with us was crying after her boyfriend left her. MY son tried to comfort her by saying, "It's okay Ms. Jecel, your not really meant for each other, your fair skinned and his skin is as dark as a monkey!

Oh how cute. Kids really say the funniest things. It's amazing how one thing they didn't intend to be funny or humerous can really just brighten your day.

hey Tamara! thank you. Yeah, my son suffered a lot of trauma from his father who left us for another girl. Both of us had to live together without his sister who opted to stay with his grandparents. My son is my constant. The only real man who never left me, even if I make mistakes he looks up to me like I am his hero and the most important person in his life. I hope that God will keep us together and support each other for the rest of our lives and soon in God's time be with his sister. I am glad of how he turned out to be. One time, in one of our journey together, I was watching him play with other kids. It amazed me when I heard him speak to a deaf mute girl like he understood her. I guess, children have this capability. They are gifts from God.

OMG this is the cutest I’ve heard from a child…what wisdom. I see he’s 9yrs old, well you sure have someone to fall back on and it’s a great thing to have your own child comfort you.

hello sudip! thank you for responding. He was 7 years old when he made those comments. He would hold my hand and tell me, "Let's pray, mommy." And he would start, "Dear Lord, please open the floodgates of heaven and give my mommy her dream house, a nice car and a nice man to love her. P.S. and please don't forget the baby girl". It's very comforting. I feel so complete when I'm with him. As a single mom, we do have our hard times but he never complained and I think whatever it is that we don't have is making the best out of him. thank you.

Oh my goodness. These are great. Your son is quite inspiring with comments like that, and I would tend to encourage him to stay like this if I were you as he gets older, and apparently this will help in the future for job prospects, etc. as well.

hello challengewealth! thank you so much for nice comments. We have a few aspirations that hasn't come true yet. As our situation is bringing out the best in my son, he, in turn is making the best out of me. I realize that even if we are burdened of trivial things like survival and providing for the needs of another human being, they are actually encouraging us to find ourselves and challenge our limitation as a human being to be our Greater Self. thank you.

Your son really has a good sense of humor. Maybe someday he'll be able to inspire people. I hope he continues his innocent humor to help you and other people.

You have got to love the things that come out of the mouths of children sheena; even if they ARE sometimes words that can be borderline hurtful or insulting! Their comments are so innocent and free of any serious consideration at times and it can actually be quite refreshing! I do not have any examples that fall within the same scenario as your son's comments, but I have heard a child in a supermarket aisle ask his Mum why the man in front of them was so fat!

hahahaha. That's funny and embarrassing for the mommy. I agree that it can be downright insulting and hurtful. And the irony is they tell the truth. LOL

'Out of the mouths of babes...' comes the truth of innocence. Oh. Long may it last! There are no politics, no schemes, no hidden agenda. However, all too soon they will learn from others hurting them, that it not a good thing to speak your mind all the time. And then that blind trust in everything will be modified. A time to steer him in the right direction, as I'm sure you will. But it is lovely while it lasts. Laugh and enjoy the moment.

heheheh. Thank you smacksman. Their innocence can be therapeutic to a person who has a lot of grown up things to do. I for one, escapes my adult game and go where the kids are. Listening to them laugh and fight who gets to be wonder woman or superman in a game is funny. I like to play with them at times and be childlike once in a while.

How sweet is that.I had these experienced with my 5 year old kid. I remember at one time I was so deep in financial trouble and the money seem to drip out little by little. So I was telling him that I have cut in some expenses in order to save a little and then he walked to his room and get back to me with his piggy bank and said 'You can use my money dad, I've been saving these for rainy days and after all I already had enough toys to play around with'. I burst into tears deep in my heart.

Hi echo! That's really sweet. I could have cried myself. The best things in the world are kids and they remain constant. I also had the same experience with my son. It was dinner time, I asked him what he wants for dinner and he said, "Mommy, do you have plenty of money or just enough?" I said we only had enough. "So what I want for dinner is what you can afford, instant noodles is fine". I was really touched.

Hahahah. Yeah, I think so. He is very active and independent, he just turned nine this November. He's the naughty type but he loves to pray. Sometimes, I am amazed when I find him watching Preachers on tv. He likes listening to them.
