Friday Fun: Angels… As Explained by Children

Kids really do say the darndest things! I came across this collection of quotes from kids about angels and had to pass along the humor. Too cute!


I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold.
—Gregory, age 5

It’s not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to Heaven, and then there’s still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.
—Matthew, age 9

Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else.
—Mitchell, age 7

My guardian angel helps me with math, but he’s not much good for science.
—Henry, age 8

Angels don’t eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows!!! 
—Jack, age 6

When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath again,  somewhere there’s a tornado.
—Reagan, age 10

Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his Son, who’s a very good carpenter.
—Jared, age 8

All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn’t go for it.
—Antonio, age 9

What I don’t get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them. 
—Sarah , age 7

    Great blurbs! Here is one from my oldest grandson, who was almost 4 at the time:

    On the way to the park, Aidan saw two squirrels chasing each other and asked what they were doing. I replied, “Playing hide and seek with each other”. His reply, “But I can’t hear him counting”!!

  2. Amy Bateman says:

    Our youngest son is named Adam. One night our dinnertable conversation got onto the topic of how our bodies are made up of many atoms. After listening for a while, our 7-year-old daughter got a look of understanding on her face and asked, “So my body is made up of Melissas?”.

  3. Wilani Wahl says:

    One year I was informed by one of my students that the 3 sons of Noah were Shem, Ham, and Bacon!

  4. Heidi says:

    So, so funny! I love the way children think and express their thoughts. Our daughter is seven and it’s amazing the things that she comes up with 🙂

  5. Renee says:

    Johnny, my oldest, was 6 and doing pretty well at reading. While I was in the library restroom stall with my younger 2 kids, Johnny was eying the feminine products dispenser. He asked, “Why would anyone buy a napkin when you can get a paper towel for free?”

  6. The nearest great-grand close to me have made so many great quotes that I wish I had written them down each time their mother told me. I did tell her to keep a notebook handy and write them down. And my memory isn’t the best anymore but I do remember two that had me in laughter. The oldest about 7 I think was looking at his new sister as she nursed. He looked up at his mom and asked. Mom, does one of the boobs have chocolate milk ? I almost rolled when she told me. I thought well that would be a good idea. LOL Another was when the family were loading into their Van and the next oldest saw where a bird had flown over their van and had left it’s mark on the hood. He got his mom’s attention down the road and said MOM, the birds must think our car is a bathroom. Without thinking it out, she asked why. And, of course he told her. LOL I’ve also got another family with 4 kids in the Texas panhandle and my granddaughter is always updating us on FB at the newest thing one or other of those girls had said. They all keep this Grammy laughing. I would love to win this book. Thanks for a chance.
