This Must Have Been an Embarrassed Mom

Art Linkletter was right when he proclaimed, “Kids day the darndest things.”

They really do. And some of the best examples surely come from children’s sermons in various churches. How members of the clergy keep from laughing is beyond me!

One incident took place several years ago in a large South Carolina church. It just so happened that this congregation’s services were broadcast live. (Wouldn’t you know it?)

When the minister sat down in the chancel area and called all of the children forward for their special time together, i.e. the children’s sermon, one little girl bouncingly walked forward, dressed in an extremely fancy and frilly dress. She plopped down right next to the minister.

While waiting for other children to come forward, the minister smiled at the little girl and remarked, “What a pretty dress you have on.”

And with the whole congregation listening and all of the broadcast audience tuned in as well, the little girl beamed up at the minister and said into the microphone, “I know, but my momma said it’s a b---- to iron!”

There was no report on how long it took to get the mother up off the floor.

Bwahahahahaha. Kids are little sponges and they hear everything you say and then repeat it at the most inopportune time. Bless their little hearts.

Thanks for the laugh and have a terrific day. :)

Yeah. That's why I don't iron my husband's shirts. Then my kids don't learn any bad words. I'm the only one who occasionally slips...he's the sailor, but I have the sailor mouth...sometimes.

Yep - That could have been Willy's daughter in her early days. She pulled a few like that.

This didn't happen in church, but I will never ever forget the day my sister, who was 3 at the time, stood in the grocery store aisle with her hands on her hips, and said to two women who were standing there chatting and blocking my mother's way "Get the F$%K out of my Mama's way."

My mother turned around and went the other way. That was in 1963.
