A group of 4 to 8 year-olds children were asked to answer the question "What does love mean?". Their answers were deeper, more insighful, and funnier than you might have thought. See what you think...
- When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just
know that your name is safe in their mouth.
Billy - age 4
- Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they
go out and smell each other.
Karl - age 5
- Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries
without making them give you any of theirs.
Chrissy - age 6
- Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.
Terri - age 4
- Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before
giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.
Danny - age 7
- Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you
still want to be together and you talk more.
Emily - age 8
- Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents
Bobby - age 7
- If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you
Nikka - age 6
- Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.
Noelle - age 7
- Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends
even after they know each other so well.
Tommy - age 6
- My mommy loves me more than anybody .You don't see anyone else kissing me to
sleep at night.
Clare - age 6

Mary Ann - age 4
- I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and
has to go out and buy new ones.
Lauren - age 4
- When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come
out of you.
Karen - age 7

you should say it a lot. People forget.
Jessica - age 8
