Do You Hear What I Hear?

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

I got this new interpretation this morning via The Good, Clean Funnies List and my wife and I enjoyed a good chuckle.

Merry Christmas, All!

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Said the mother to her little child, “Do you see what I see?
Yonder in the floor, little child. Do you see what I see?
A toy, a toy, lying on the floor.
Exactly where it was lying before.
Exactly where it was lying before.”

Said the little child to her brother near, “Do you hear what I hear?
Someone spoke. Was it Mother dear? Do you hear what I hear?
A voice, a voice, talking now to me.
About toys that I did not see.
About toys that I did not see.”

Said the tattle brother to the mighty dad, “Do you know what I know?
Little sister has been very bad. Do you know what I know?
The child, the child, has been very bold.
It is now your turn to go scold.
It is now your turn to go scold.”

Said the dad to all the children there, “Listen to what I say!
I pray for peace, children in my care. Listen to what I say!
God forgives. Accept Him; He’s the light.
And with prayer, you will turn out all right.
And with prayer, you will turn out all right.”

“A Johnny Funny”

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

I get a funny joke or story every day from Micky’s Funnies.

today’sFUNNY===========================

Young Johnny finished summer vacation and went back to school.

Two days later his teacher phoned his mother to tell her that Johnny was misbehaving.

“Wait a minute!” said Johnny’s mom.  “I had him here for two months and I never once called YOU when he misbehaved!”

PASS IT ON!
Yeah, you can send this Funny to anybody you want. And, if you’re REAL nice, you’ll tell them where you got it! www.mikeysFunnies.com

Yes, it’s amusing.  Unfortunately, it also has more than a grain of truth behind it.  IMHO, our education system and our children are in the mess they are in largely because parents have abdicated their primary responsibility to educate their children – in manners and morals as much as knowledge.

 

How are you doing?

Five Things All Parents Should Do for Their Children

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Aside from the grammar sin in the title, I can’t say this any better than Paul Sloane does in Five Things Every Parent Should Do for Their Young Children.

I have to add that these five things should not stop until your children leave home, if ever.
