I came across this video that I love of a girl named Riley who is fighting for justice inside a toy store. It’s one of those moments where you’re astonished by how insightful children can be, and you say out loud: “Oh, from the mouth of babes!”
In the spirit of precious ditties from little ones, here’s a running list of some of my favorite quotes from kids when asked about what love is:
Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross.
When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.
Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.
Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.
My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.
Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.
Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.
Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.
Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.
