Like the old saying goes..."out of the mouths of babes"!
One thing you can always count on from old folks and children...they nearly always tell the truth! The kids haven't learned to lie all that well and the older folks figure that they have earned the right to say what they want!
Here's a story that shows how cool it can be when the little guys do as they were taught! Let this be a warning to ya!

Kids say the darndest things, and San Rafael police are damn happy they do.
Officers called to a Woodland Avenue home Wednesday morning after a report of a burglary found a woman outside a home with children, ages 3 and 6.
She explained she was caring for a friend s kids, and flatly denied she had entered the Woodland Avenue home of her mother.
That's when the 6-year-old girl spoke up.
"Diane, you know you were the one who told us don t tell you were the one who went in through the front window."
Laptops taken from the home were found stacked in a nearby storage shed.
Saucer-eyed San Rafael police arrested Diane Lydia Ellison, 27, on suspicion of burglary, child cruelty and possession of a small amount of methamphetamine. She was booked into Marin County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
"It was priceless," San Rafael Cpl. Todd Berringer said, adding arresting officers couldn t believe their ears as the child explained what happened.
In this case, the kids did just as they were taught and that's a good thing. Just because the "grown-up" in the group was busted because of it is just too bad! One case of the truth NOT setting you free! You just gotta love it!
