Little Sir is 4 – as he likes to tell people he ‘just turned 4’ only a month or two ago. He’s always been a sparky little thing since the day he came home over a year ago, but recently I have been fascinated by the way his mind works. We have the most interesting conversations and sometimes, well more than sometimes, I am baffled at what goes on in his head and how to respond to it! Here are his more ‘out there’ comments:
The Death Star conundrum
‘Look Mummy, it’s the new Death Star!’
That was the moment I knew that Star Wars had now completely taken over our lives! A science lesson was in order!
Animals in disguise
‘Look Mummy, cows.’
‘No Little Sir, that’s a horse!’.
‘Look Mummy, horses in disguise!’
Smart child, or slightly worrying??
Shopaholics are us
‘Daddy, I really like this towel!’
‘Umm, that’s great Little Sir.’
‘Where did you get it from?’
‘Umm, well I think Mummy got it from a towel shop.’
‘Oooh, do they also do blue towels there?’
I think he’s turning into a shopaholic already!
‘Mummy, why are our eyes above our noses?’
‘Umm, I think that’s a Daddy question darling.’
Daddy took the whole thing far too seriously and had a long scientific conversation with a 4 year old about the make up of a face!
Utterly terrifying conversations!
‘Mummy, your head is too big!’
‘Too big for what?’
‘Too big for me to chop off!’
‘Well, I’m pretty glad about that!’
(After quite a long pause) ‘Mummy…can I have a chopper for my birthday?’
Well that would be a definite NO!
Kids really do say the darndest things – I’d love to hear the things your kidlets say which make you laugh or just make you scratch your head!
