Testing 1 2 3


Today, on our 50th wedding anniversary, she smiled at me and said, “I only wish I had met you sooner.” MMT

My daughter (5) and I have been enjoying playing a new game together.

“Dad, I really like playing the new game with you.” I told her that I had been enjoying playing it with her too.

“And when I’m a mommy, I’ll play the game with my children too.” I smiled.

She went on, “And when you’re not alive anymore, I’ll take good care of it.”

Earlier today, my son (3) told me that he’ll “never join the Dark Side” (unprompted)…..I told him that maybe his sister will….She (5) had told me in no uncertain terms…..”Oh, I’ll join the Dark Side”.

Neither of them has seen the movie, know what it is about, etc…..Yet somehow, they both seem to have assimilated the cultural heritage….Amazing.

At dinner, my family and I were discussing foods we liked and disliked; and how these things were different for each of us. I remarked to my daughter (5) that she and I both liked olives. At this she smiled and leaned in to whisper, “Let’s invent a secret handshake”.

My son (3) was angry because I told him “no”. So he told me that he was going to “call a policeman to come and put me in a prison!” The difficult task of keeping from laughing was made doubley so with my daughter’s (5) practical interjection, “But then how would we get places? We can’t drive a car…”

I heard my kids bickering about something in the other room. When I asked if they were fighting about something petty, my daughter set the record straight, “No…Icecream….”.

Children occasionally say remarkable or insightful things. ┬áMy wife and I have taken to referring to the old adage, “Out of the mouths of babes….” when this happens in our life. One day while driving in the car, my daughter (3 at the time) pointed to a hill near our house and informed us that it was “The Mountain of Babes”. After I narrowly avoided driving into a ditch, I told her that I’d been looking for the Mountain of Babes all my life. …”Well there it is, Dad”.

This site is dedicated to the humor, wit, and wisdom that we stumble upon on our journey through life….so much of it from children. Feel free to send us your own gems at truths atttt mountainofbabes dottttt com. Hey, they may have been mined from the Mountain of Babes…
