Hi all

I was reading one of my magazines today and came across this heartwarming story. What a lovely and bright 5 year old girl.

This young lass could teach adults a thing or two about spirit and how to deal with these strange and difficult times. Her mum must be so proud.😊🌈

That’s so lovely, my dad used to sing old songs to his five Grandchildren and they have gone on to sing them to their children keeping his memory alive. ❀️

How lovely is that? It is a great story. Thank you for sharing it. x

in reply to Sheila_G

Isn't it just, I was thrilled to read it xx🌈

How lovely. Reminds me of one of my sons when he was about five or six, we were on a long journey in the car when he started to sing Dolly Grey, when asked where he learnt it he said one of the dinner ladies in school taught them on wet break

in reply to Misty4

It really is. What a lovely story about your son's dinner lady and for her taking the time to do that.πŸŒˆπŸ’œ

So uplifting to see. I wish I had been in the Supermarket!


in reply to RoadRunner44

That's exactly what I thought, I'd loved to have been there.🌈😊

When I was a voluntary assistant gymnastics teacher, I remember saying to a very bashful 13 year old:

"Little girls are braver"

It is a matter of confidence, competence, caution, innocence, naivety...

in reply to S11m

I bet that young lass remembers you. She really was a confident girl in the story.🌈😊

Isn't it just Jerry, it's such a beautiful story🌈🌞

Dear crazyfitness,

Wonderful.... Yes I would have Joined In tooπŸ˜ƒ.

I recall, some years back now, I was in Nottingham- in The Big Wok, Chinese Restaurant. A 'little' voice began Counting, ALL the way, up to Ten.😊 The child was probably around six years old and was, clearly delighted, by the 'praise' that he received from us All.

(I'm not, too sure, that 'Everyone' was quite so pleased an hour and twenty minutes later.... 'someone' Teach him Eleven and Twelve PLEASE!πŸ˜–)

Many years back now, one of my Nephew/ Nieces, was in a 'Multi School' Production, at a fairly large local venue. Yes 'they' were good😊, everyone was.... The WHOLE 'Thing', was however Stolen by ONE Child, a girl of about four. Blond haired, blue- or similar- eyed and Wanted to be 'In' Everything!πŸ˜€ The same little girl 'came on', at the end, and sang a song- whether that WAS 'The Plan', or not..... It was 'Her' audience and She was 'Playing' to it! (I asked afterwards, and found out, that she was the daughter of one of the Teachers.)

I used to do, before I became ill, a 'fair bit' of Charity Collecting. I knew all 'the tricks', one of which was, to ask a Passing Child if He/ she wanted a Sticker. The 'thinking' being that either the child, or Mum/ Dad, would then make a Donation- it Did often Work. This particular day, along was coming a child- of about six- with her Parent(s). "Would you like a 'Sticker'?" I asked. "NO" replied the child "I want a WEE!".... and that was thatπŸ™ˆ (Cheque Please).

Just though, that I'd, Share


in reply to AndrewT

Oh aren't children wonderful. The innocence and they react so well to praise, it's good to praise them.

Oh I love that, yes they don't understand when to stop do they.πŸ˜‰

I wonder if her mummy had encouraged her to do that then. Isn't it lovely though when people are praising our children, makes you proud.

I do exactly the same. Charity cake stalls, I always aim for the child, it works quite a few times. I love that the child actually wanted a wee though, you didn't expect that one. I'm sorry you are unable to do it now.

Thank you for sharing.πŸ‘πŸŒˆπŸ˜Š

such a lovely story. wish I'd been in that queue I would of joined in. I have 4 grand children a girl 16 who dotes on her grandad, then 2 boys 14 7 12, then a gorgeous little girl of 6. she drew us a lovely picture and wrote on it how much she loves us, and sent it to us at the start of lockdown, she lives nearby, but has been so good about not seeing us. but I am looking forward to some cuddles. take care everyone.

in reply to

I so wished I had as well, what a lovely little girl. Think I'll tell my grandaughters about this.

Aww how lovely your16 year granddaughter dotes on her grandad. Aww how lovely to receive that picture from your youngest granddaughter, so sweet.

Take care and stay safeπŸŒˆπŸ™

I just think children say the funniest things. Out son was in the playground one lunchtime, the dinner lady told him off , he stuck his tongue out at her but she caught him doing it and asked him why to which he replied I didn't think you would turn round so fast and see me!!! πŸ˜‚ Very quick for a 5 year old!! I know we shouldn't laugh but it was so funny because of the quickness that he replied!! Take care and stay safe everyone. Love and hugs to you all Lynne β£οΈπŸ€— xxxx

in reply to

They really do Lynne.

Well that was a very quick honest response from your son, don't you just love children and that was a very quick response.

Oh children poke their tongues out frequently and it's all innocent.

Stay safe and well.

Alicia xxxπŸŒˆπŸ’œ

in reply to

Yes, all children do this. We laughed at how quick his answer was and at what he said, he was just being honest!! Xxxx

in reply to

Oh children are very honest, we could learn a thing or two as adults from children xxx

in reply to

Yes, that's true!! I had a horrible boss when I worked at the gas board in the mid 80s,-early 90s, anyway my boss said why haven't you done such a thing to which I replied I forgot!! This boss was a nasty so and so, we all nearly collapsed when she said you silly so and so ,just do it now. I don't think she could cope with my honesty which is the way my Mum and Dad brought me up ,honesty is definitely a good thing., It's the way we brought our boys up and thankfully they are honest but with a bit of cheekiness as well , I love the banter that we have which of course hubby joins in on. Their girlfriends stick up for me, though πŸ‘πŸŒˆπŸ˜’πŸ’œxxxx

in reply to

Now that's really good and I could have done with being like that to the horrible person I worked for. I've learnt though and am no longer like that.

I love banter, it's such good fun and love it that your sons' girlfriends stick up for you. I've got a fantastic relationship with my son in law xxx❀🌈

in reply to

People used to stick up for me, the one I've mentioned was my 2nd boss, first one was absolutely awful. She was telling me the the wrong way to do things so that it would get in trouble, this was found out when she went on holiday!! When I finally stood up to her everyone in the office cheered!!

The job I had to take ill health retirement from in June 2018 was absolutely fantastic and couldn't have been more different. I was in a primary school- absolutely fantastic,! So different from my office job. I've stayed in touch with all my friends there including my boss. Sorry, I've gone off on a tangent again,!! I just get carried away πŸ€£πŸ˜‚xxxxπŸŒˆπŸ€—πŸ’œ

in reply to

Oh what a fantastic feeling everyone cheering you in the office - result.

I'm so sorry you had to take medical retirement, particularly from a job you loved. What a rewarding job as well. I'm so pleased you've kept in touch with your friends from that job.

No problem, well go off on a tangent πŸ˜‰πŸŒˆβ€xxx

Dear Lynne,

You go off at a 'Tangent'.... although, I thought you needed Signs and Co-signs... to 'go' with your Tangent….. Well, you, were working, in a School😁.

I Could Rattle On, for Ages, if I can find the right EQUATIONπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ€—.

Sorry School Maths jokes....


in reply to AndrewT


Unfortunately I had to finish on ill health retirement in June 2018, loved my job. Breakfast club worker, classroom assistant, dinner lady (and yes, we did go out when it was only spitting) and my friend and myself did football training with the kids until a couple of men started as teachers a few years ago and we handed over the reins!!

I'm still in touch with all my friends and my boss who is also a friend. See I told you a rabbited on πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

in reply to

Not so sure! Was in a changing cubicle with my 5 year old great grandson. Told him he had to wait for me before he went to the poolside. He quietly watched me get changed and announced loudly β€œNanny you look very funny with no clothes on! Like an old lady elephant β€œ! You can be too honest! 🀣

in reply to

Oh my goodness Hylda, how mortifying was that. They really are too honest at timesπŸ˜‚

Out of the mouths of babes xxxx

in reply to

Precisely. My grandaughters used to get in the shower with me and the eldest one was fascinated by my upper half, no explanation needed. When they come for a sleepover now I have my shower first.πŸ˜‰ xxx🌈

Dear Lynne,

When I was at 'Just The Wrong Age', IE about fifteen, we were on Holiday- I forget where- and we met up with my Mother's Bosses brother, who was also with his family.

His youngest girl (about seven) kept pulling up, her dress, to show- apparently everybody- her knickers. Whereas these days I'd just ignore this, fairly 'Typical' behaviour, at MY age I told her 'Not To'. A BIG mistake, as I'm walking away, a voice Rings out "Don't Go Andrew.... I'm NOT Going To Show You My Knickers Any More". I just wanted to 'find' the BIGGEST hole.....πŸ˜¬β€¦.πŸ˜‚.

Just though that I'd 'Share' this....

Bet you wanted to bury your head in your hands!Β‘

Lovely little girl. Made me all choked up.

Thank you for posting.
