Young Children Are Full Of Spirit

, | USA | Children, Nephews & Nieces, Popular

(My sister and I are quite religious. She mentions that she had read a story in a church magazine to my two-year-old nephew about a little boy who was scared of the monsters in his closet, so he prayed for the Holy Ghost to help him.)

Sister: “The problem is, he thinks the monsters were scared of the Holy Ghost.”

Nephew: *repeating* “Scary Holy Ghost!”

Sister: “No! It’s not scary.”

Me: “He’s not scary. He’s my friend!”

(My nephew gives us incredulous looks, then runs around the playground.)

Nephew: “Woot woot! I’m the scary Holy Ghost! I’m gonna come get you!”

(He then starts stomping around, looking very menacing and laughing maniacally. )

Cut Off From The Family

(My boyfriend has gotten a haircut, going from having shoulder-length hair to having a buzzcut. The only two people who have never seen him with short hair are me and his young niece. When his niece finally sees him with his new cut:)

Niece: “Who are you?!”

(Same reaction I had!)


Shes Faster Than a Speeding Ticket

(I’m in the car driving with my nieces, aged 11 and 12, in the backseat.)

Niece: “Auntie, why are you slowing down?”

Me: “Because of the road sign telling me to.”

Niece: “Daddy never slows down here.”


Niece: “Is that why Dad is getting all those tickets he is complaining about?”
