Kids on Love . . . What the real experts, toddlers and children, have to say about Love!

Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.—Bobby, age 7

Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.—Mary Ann, age 4

When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.—Karen, age 7

Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it every day.—Noelle, age 7

Love is when you kiss all the time. My mommy and my daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss!—Emily, age 8

My mother says to look for a man who's kind, so I'll find somebody who's kinda tall and handsome.—Carolyn, age 8

Here's my personal favorite:

A boy's next-door neighbor had just lost his wife. When the boy saw the man cry, he climbed into his lap and just sat there. When the boy's mother asked him what he'd said, the boy replied: "Nothing, I just helped him cry."

Here's one that should make all parents think:

Love is when your mommy says she'd rather be in hell with you than in heaven without you.―Mikey, age 6

If you're concerned about innocent children being terrorized by the debilitating fear that they'll live in danger of an "eternal hell" when they grow up, please read this article: There is no Hell in the Bible. In thousands of years of Biblical chronologies, neither God, nor the angels, nor the Hebrew prophets ever said a single word about anyone going to a place called "hell" and they never mentioned any possibility of suffering after the death. How can there be a "hell" if God never mentioned it to Adam, Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, Solomon or a long line of Hebrew prophets? The hyperlinked article might help save an innocent child many years of terror and unnecessary suffering, and adults have told me it helped them too.

Love has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deodorant are so popular.—Mae, age 9
It isn't always how you look. I'm handsome as anything, and I haven't got anybody to marry me yet.—Brian, age 7
My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.—Clare, age 6
I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when "Dinosaurs" is on TV.—Jill, age 6
When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know your name is safe in their mouths.—Billy, age 4
Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on cologne and they go out and smell each other.—Kari, age 5
Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he's handsomer than Robert Redford.—Chris, age 7
One of you should know how to write a check. Because even if you have tons of love, there will still be lots of bills.—Ava, age 8
Love is when you give somebody most of your French fries without eating any of theirs.—Chrissie, age 6
Love is when mommy makes coffee for daddy and she takes a sip to make sure the taste is OK.—Danny, age 7
If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend you hate.—Nikka, age 6
The rules goes like this: if you kiss someone, you should marry her. It's the right thing to do.—Howard, age 8
Love is when mommy sees daddy on the toilet and doesn't think it's gross.—Mark, age 6
You really shouldn't say I LOVE YOU unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.—Jessica, age 8
