Rock, Paper, Scissors….
My daughter-in-law, Leslie, is upstairs at her home fixing dinner and downstairs in the basement are her two youngest children Sam, 6, and Ella, 5, and they are playing the hand game, Rock, Paper, Scissors. Leslie listens for a bit to make sure they are playing nice and then hears Sam yell out, "Ella, you were supposed to put out scissors!" Without missing a beat, Ella screams back, "Sam, you know I'm not allowed to have scissors!"

Wide Load
One day in St. Louis, MO, my 3 1/2-year-old grandson and I watched as a large garbage truck used its forklift to unload garbage cans in the neighbourhood. Joshua especially liked hearing the siren sound as the truck backed up. A few days later, we were standing in line at the local grocery store check-out. A very large woman was in front of us when her pager went off. In the loudest 3 1/2-year- old-voice he could muster, Joshua said, "We'd better move Poppa; I think she's going to back up."

A Sticky Situation
While on a trip from St. John's to Corner Brook, our daughter-in-law's parents stopped at our house in Grand Falls-Windsor for a cup of tea and a break from the long drive. Knowing that her mother loved toutons we made sure that we had them all ready along with a bowl of pea soup. We placed the toutons on the table along with a mason jar half full of molasses. As she was eating the

One Child's Meaning of Easter
The Grade 1 teacher was telling her class the Easter story. She was trying to get them to say "resurrection." She said it starts with a "re" and ends in "tion."

My grandson Neal thought for a minute and raised his hand. The teacher asked him if he knew what the word was. "Yes," he said. "Rise and shine."

Egg On Your Face
Recently I met a former student of mine whom I taught about 45 years ago.He told me when I was teaching him in the late 1960's he was part of a group that kept a hen each so they could have a fresh egg every now and then. He did not have a hen himself and decided to steal one from my father's chicken coup. He took it home and told his parents that a
