The Truth About Children - Jokes

The Truth About Kids You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 telling them to sit down and shut-up. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your children. Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like clearing the driveway before it has stopped snowing. There is only one pretty child in the world and every mother has it.- Chinese Proverb. Mothers of teens know why animals eat their young. Children are natural mimics, who act like their parents despite every effort to teach them good manners. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own. We child proofed our home 3 years ago and they're still getting in!

I am glad that you enjoyed it rosebug. I thought it was funny when I first saw it too and decided to share it with others. A very special friend of mine says about her children and grandchildren "lovely to see them come but after a few days it is even lovelier to see them go."

My partner is sitting here having a good old laugh to herself .... thinks this is brilliant .... particularly about the first 2 years and then the next 16 years. and we both like the one about grandchildren being God's reward ..... my oldest daughter has been very difficult but now she has a wonderful son ..... only hope she finds a good man one day soon ..... neither of the poor child's parents are much good for anything ..... so there is plenty of room for improvement. Yes we child proofed our home too .... but they still keep coming here for holidays .... at our expense of course .. then want petrol money for coming and going back home.

I am pleased that you and your partner likes these, and also that you see humour in the one about grandchildren. Do take care of your grandson and give him plenty of love, which is something no child ever has enough of. Thanks for reading and responding. :)

he Policeman recently stopped a woman for exceeding the posted speed limit. He asked the driver her name. She said, "I'm Mrs. Ladislav Abdulkhashim Zybkcicraznovskaya from the Republic of Uzbekistan visiting my daughter in Columbia." The cop put away his summons book and pen, and said, "Well... OK... but don't let me catch you speeding again."

Okay about the grandchildren but make sure that your children know you want a little bit of a break first. LOL For us, we are ready for grandchildren but do not see them in the near future although we do live in hope of course. Thanks for reading and responding. :)
