A Preschooler’s Love Song
Recently I had this interchange with a 4-year-old boy and his mom in our ward:
Me: I'm sorry you won't be in Primary to practice with us today. We're singing for our moms in Sacrament Meeting next week for Mother's Day.
Mother: Tell me what songs you're doing and I'll help him practice them at home.
Me: Mother Dear I Love You So, and Love is Spoken Here.
4-year-old: I know Mother's Smokin' Here!
When one of our grandsons was about four, I offered him a dollar if he could tell me which president's face was on the bill. He replied with the only president he knew: "President Hinckley!"

Sorting it All Out
My newly-turned-3-year-old daughter was looking at the hymnbook during sacrament meeting. She wanted to know what the word on the front of the book was. I told her it says: “Hymns.” She responded by pointing at the bishopric and asking in a confused voice: "Hims?"
