Hi Dtn42,

The following is simply anecdotal and perhaps you have heard the
story. But it's my favourite when it comes to a child's logic. I hope
it fits your category of "success".

A truck driver thought that he'd take the short-cut. But the sign
posts were right. His truck was slightly higher than the bridge
clearance above the road.

With traffic stopped, engineers were called to work out how to remove
the jammed truck and minimise further damage to the bridge.

A little girl in the traffic jam came up with the answer. "Let the air
out of the tyres".

I believe that was a true story, was it not?
I understood the truck was driving into New York City and got stuck at
the entrance to the Holland Tunnel.



The summer before my five-year-old started kindergarten we were on the
expressway driving to her soon-to-be elementary school. When I pointed
out the school, she said, "Cool". And then I told her that was the
school that Grandma Linda and Grandpa Doug went to when they were her
There was a long pause and then she said, "Is there still paint left
on the walls?"

At the bank the other day, my three-year-old daughter noticed the
large dollhouse sitting in front of the mortgage office. I saw her
eyes light up and I said, "Gracie, I know you see that dollhouse but
it has a sign on it that says 'Please, Do Not Touch!'"
She slowly moved a bit closer, just to look inside at the Barbie-sized
man and woman dolls sitting at the kitchen table, then came back to me
and said, "Mommy, if I take the sign off, then it won't say 'Please do
not touch' anymore!" Smart and literal...takes after her Mommy!


A friend of mine decided that her son was old enough that he shouldn't
see her naked anymore. When she told her four-year-old this, he
responded, "Why? I won't laugh!"

My child asked "If Winnie the Pooh wears a shirt, why doesn't he wear
any pants or underwear?"



There are two major things that I stress about with both my five-year
old and my one and a half-year-old: Seatbelts and Manners. Having a
bad habit of not immediately putting on my seatbelt, I rely on a chime
in the car to act as a reminder. One morning while making my morning
commute, my one and a half-year-old heard the chime and said, "put on
your 'teet' belt."
My five-year old said, "Now say thank you."


Do searches for:

"kids say the darndest things"


"out of the mouths of babes"

YOu'll find lots more.
I found those at some site full of popups.

Hi Dreamboat and Dtn42,

Dreamboat .. I enjoyed your anecdotes. Fantastic, thanks for making me
smile. Yep, I believe the "truck stuck under the bridge" was a true
story. As with your own intelligent children, I have learnt to never
underestimate the awareness of a child. If only we all could stay as

My daughter must have been about 8 or 9 at the time. A political
supporter was handing out pamphlets at the local shops. Jessie asked
me what I was handed. So, I went to my usual great lengths of
explanation as to how we vote for candidates based on important
promised policies such as where taxes are spent on health, education
and so forth.

Her response: "When we vote, do we vote them IN or vote them OUT". How
succint is that?

I could not stop laughing, as the answer is the same. 

Dtn42 .. I hope that the above goes towards your section on
Leadership. I am yet to address an example of "Life".
