Love the way kids think


 Ah, Shucks!

.
I really did not mean to hurt her
It was just a fluke
I did not know she would duck
And loosen her bottom tooth
.
I tried to explain to my mother
But she did not want to hear
She was so very angry
That she pulled the lobe of my ear
.
My sister yelled and cried so hard
It made me jump up out of my chair
I looked at her in surprise
I wanted to laugh but did not dare
.
Ah, shucks, I really did not want to hurt her
I tried to hug her tight and apologize
But she pushed me away 
Pulling on my hair so tight
.
Momma told me to go outside
That I was not to come back in for awhile
To go to the barn and tell my dad what I did
But I was afraid I was going to be put on trial
.
So here I am sitting on the ground
Deciding what I should do
Take a chance and explain to dad
Or hide out from him too
.
I learned a lesson today at least
Not to pull pranks on those you love
Cause they might get hurt by accident
And God is watching from above
.
I told God that I would not do that again
If He would forgive me for being a bad boy
And that I would be good to my sister 
Unless she starts to bug me
Or tries to steal my toys
.

That's a perfect picture of me! It seems I was always getting in trouble as a boy. That is, all except the God part.

Heh.Heh Don't know if I could reason that well at that age, but that switch on my backside made me very careful about what I was about in the future.

...kids don't think in terms of limits...don't seem to care what others think...if only the adult-world could understand the creative ways of child-like thinking!?..it would help the journey throughout entire life...
Thank you Kathy, for bringing into my thought...that mind-set of my-inner-child...again...

This kid's logic makes perfect sense to me.
Is there a problem here? :)
