Innocence of babes...







So a friend sent me this joke today and it's good for a laugh if you have a minute to read it. It made me think of how innocent and unquestioning Kylie used to be and how Peyton still is. Not that I want it any other way because I love that Kylie is so observant and inquisitive about things but we always need to be on our toes for whatever questions she throws our way! I remember hearing from different friends that around 3 or 4 years old some of "the questions" start- and they were right. And it's not just the questions- it's that one answer is never enough. Each answer is followed by the "but why??". Those of you with kids, young or old, know exactly what I'm talking about :)!





Enjoy!






6th Grade Question
The 6th grade science teacher, Mrs. Parks, asked her class, 'Which human body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?'
No one answered until little Mary stood up, angry, and said, 'You should not be asking 6th graders a question like that! I'm going to tell my parents, and they will go and tell the principal, who will then fire you!'
With a sneer on her face, she then sat back down.
Mrs. Parks ignored her and asked the question again, 'Which body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?'
Little Mary's mouth fell open; then she said to those around her, 'Boy, is she gonna get in big trouble!' The teacher continued to ignore her and said to the class,' Anybody?'
Finally, Billy stood up, looked around nervously, and said, 'The body part that increases 10 times its size when stimulated is the pupil of the eye.'
Mrs. Parks said, 'Very good, Billy,' then turned to Mary and continued, 'As for you, young lady, I have three things to say
(1) you have a dirty mind,
(2) you didn't read your homework, and
(3) one day, when you're older, you are going to be very, very disappointed.'
