When my son was small he used to ask me all manner of questions. I think he was trying to make sense of the world and the way he looked at it all intrigued me. I miss the day the questions didn’t make huge amounts of sense to me but amused me greatly. They also all demanded an answer. “I don’t know” just wasn’t good enough. I wrote some down at the time. For amusement, I thought I would share a few of the thinkings of my son when he was younger!
If that car was full of leaves and it had square wheels then could you drive it?
What if it was full of leaves but all the wheels were round except the steering wheel was a brick?
Would a house set on fire if it was made of concrete but all the stuff inside was made of wood?
If our house was upside down in space then would you be able to get in the door?
One day, when I’m a rainbow, will I be able to go to school?
Him – How did all the people get underground?
Me-what do you mean, there aren’t people underground.
Him- But they are holding up the pavement
Me-there aren’t people holding up the pavement
Him- Well what are all the lumps then?
Him- Mummy am I gonna die?
Me-no you’ve just got a bug, it will go soon
Him- will it bite me?
Me-Im just making your tea
Him- can i check on my hamster? Me-???? You don’t have a hamster?
Me- which toy do you want to take for toy day?
Him- er mum?
Him- can i take the christmas tree? Me-??!!!!
The last two aren’t questions but they also amused me so Ive included them anyway:
Him- mummy, i wouldn’t like living with a counter”
Me- what’s a counter?
Him- it’s someone who counts all day and all night without stopping.
Me- there are two important adults you need to listen to and do as they say, can you think who they are?
Him- My dance teacher?
Me- well i guess so but i wasn’t thinking of her i was thinking of Mummy and……. It begins with “D”?
(We don’t know anyone called Daniel!)
