Of Presidents and Prophets
A friend from our ward told her 4-year-old grandson one day that he was really smart. He replied: “Yes, I know that I am smart.” So she asked who the last president of the United States was. He correctly answered: "George W. Bush.” When she asked if he knew who Bush’s vice president was, he said: “Sure—it was Gordon B. Hinckley!”
A toddler was trying to reach something in the pantry on a shelf just a little too high for him. He stretched and stretched but couldn’t quite get to it. His mother said, “Use your tippy toes.” Being the obedient toddler, he sat down and started to reach with his toes to acquire the object.
Our daughter Brooke was working on ceramic nativity pieces that had just come out of the kiln. Her daughter walked by and asked, "Who is that?" Brooke
When our 6-year-old grandson Gage saw the pile of presents from Santa, he said: “Wait. How come there are presents from Santa when we weren’t that good?”

Loud and Clear
Little Johnnie was making big booming sounds as he dropped blocks on his block city and said in an evil voice: "I’m going to destroy the world. Ha ha ha!" Then he was quiet a moment and said in a little reverent voice: "Don't worry Heavenly Father, I'm only playing. I don't REALLY want to destroy the world.”

Is that a Threat?
My daughter-in-law was in the car with her three small children on her way to a parent-teacher conference when her 7-year-old son Ethan started asking about heaven. "I want to know what heaven looks like," Ethan said. Eager to help out, his 4-year-old sister Ella said in a cheerful voice: "Don't worry, you will know soon."
