The best laughs I have known in life have been from my own children. I have captured rhetorical comments from my children's discussions. No Pulitzer Prize could ever hold a candle to the notes jotted in this little book in my kitchen.
* "I wonder if the tooth fairy is a boy or a girl."
* "Mom, what is it like being a grown up? Do you like buying everything you want and giving the kids nothing."
* "Mom, what name did you have when you were a kid?"
* "I wish I had a birthday everyday."
* "If alcohol and cigarettes are bad for you then why did somebody invent them?"
* "Mom, are the friends you had as a kid still alive?"
* "The cat went to the vegetarian to be neutered." "What's neutered?" "It means he'll come back a girl."
* "What is a pilgrim?" "That's the ones who don't know how to plant corn."
* "Who picked the very first king and queen there ever was?"
* "Mom, when you die, can I be a mom?"
* "I can't swallow anything in my neck because my clams are swollen."
* "Mom, is there only one man in the world for me? How many are there? About 30 in each country?"
* "Does God have a nose?"
* "Mom, you're the best mom I ever had."
