Dressing Down

Shoshana and David Epstein were getting married and Shoshana decided to ask David’s mother Esther if she could wear her wedding dress. The day Shoshana tried it on for the first time, she walked down the stairs to the living room so her future mother in law to see. The gown was a perfect fit on Shoshana’s petite frame and Mrs. Epstein’s eyes welled with tears.

"You're not losing a son," Shoshana reminded her future mother in law. "You're gaining a daughter."

"Oh, forget about that!" Esther said with a sob. "I used to fit into that dress!"

Mom on the Run

Debbie Shulman was getting used to being a mother to her 18 month old son Sruli and she was determined to be one of those mothers who took their baby everywhere and never slowed down.

So off Debbie went one morning rushing to catch a bus with Sruli strapped into a backpack. But Debbie tripped and suddenly she fell down an entire flight of stairs. She was bruised and bleeding and had torn her shirt, but her main concern was obviously for little Sruli.

Debbie’s fears were alleviated, though, when from behind her she heard a gleeful giggle followed by, "Again!"

Babysitter’s Club

Chaim and Shira knew it was time for a date night. They had 4 young and “energetic” kids at home but hardly had time to spend with one another. So with some misgivings, they found a young babysitter in the neighborhood named Rachel and left her in charge of the house for a night.

When Chaim and Shira returned a few hours later, Rachel was sitting alone watching TV.

Shira went to check on the children and found them all in their narrow hallway. By bracing their arms and legs against the walls, they had climbed up to the ceiling.

"The babysitter taught us how," they said gleefully.

Rachel turned to Chaim and Shira, her face a deep red, and said, "Since they had me climbing the walls, I figured they might as well be too.”

From then on, Chaim and Shira decided that every Tuesday night would be date night with Rachel the babysitter.
