One Way to Explain the Word 'Marriage' to a Child
Claire was a typical three year old: pretty, friendly, cute, inquisitive,
and bright as a sixpence. However, one day, Claire showed some difficulty in
grasping the concept of marriage. Robert, her father, thought the best way
to teach her was to show her his wedding photo album believing that visual
images would help Claire's understanding.
One page after another, he pointed out photographs of the bride arriving
at the church, the entrance, the actual wedding ceremony, the signing of the
licence and the reception afterwards.
'Now do you understand, darling?' Robert enquired smiling.
'I think so,' responded Claire dutifully, 'and is that when mummy came to
work for us?' Out of the mouths ....

All in the
Mrs Clarke looked at the picture drawn by 5 year old Sarah in the art lesson
and asked why she had named it Harold Witchart.
'Well,' answered Sarah confidently, 'because that's his name.'
'Oh, interesting,' continued Mrs Clarke, 'and who is Harold Witchart?'
'Oh he lives with God,' nodded Sarah, 'you know........in church we
say........."Our father Witchart in Heaven, Harold be thy name"...............'

I've been teaching now for about fifteen years. I have two kids myself, but
the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second grade classroom a
few years back.
When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell. So I always have a few sessions with
my students. It helps them get over shyness and usually, show-and-tell is pretty
tame. Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes, pictures of fish they catch,
stuff like that. And I never, ever place any boundaries or limitations on them.
If they want to lug it in to school and talk about it, they're welcome.
Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid,
takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed
under her sweater.
She holds up a snapshot of an infant. "This is Luke, my baby brother, and I'm
going to tell you about his birthday."
'First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put a
seed in my Mom's stomach, and Luke grew in there. He ate for nine months through
an umbrella cord.'
She's standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I'm trying not to
laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me. The kids are watching her in
'Then, about two Saturdays ago, my Mom starts saying and going, 'Oh, Oh, Oh,
Oh!' Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans. 'She walked around the house
for, like an hour, 'Oh, oh, oh!' (Now this kid is doing a hysterical duck walk
and groaning.) 'My Dad called the middle wife. She delivers babies, but she
doesn't have a sign on the car like the Domino's man. They got my Mom to lie
down in bed like this.' (Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)
'And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he got
thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like psshhheew!'
(This kid has her legs spread with her little hands miming water flowing away.
It was too much!)
'Then the middle wife starts saying 'push, push,' and 'breathe, breathe. They
started counting, but never even got past ten. Then, all of a sudden, out comes
my brother. He was covered in yucky stuff that they all said it was from Mom's
play-center, so there must be a lot of toys inside there.'
Then Erica stood up, took a big theatrical bow and returned to her seat. I'm
sure I applauded the loudest. Ever since then, when it's show-and-tell day, I
bring my camcorder, just in case another "Middle Wife" comes along.
