AIBU to think my DD (2.5yrs) is a philosophical genius?

... to come out with this little gem:

"If you're happy and you know it, can you really show it?"

DS (aged 2): Why did the weasel go pop?

Not philosophical but SO touching, this one...

DS (aged 5, few weeks ago, sitting on loo doing poo) made a heart shape with his hands and said: 'Deep, deep, deep, deep, deep in my heart is a tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny forever kiss, just for you.'

Cue blubbing from mummy.

My ds had a lot of things to get used to all in one go and after a particularly frenetic day she said from the back of the car, 'Let's all be dogs.' I asked her some complicated adult question about why she wanted to be a dog and what was good about being a dog and she said, 'Good dog, mum.'

our 6 year grandson asked me if I would take the necklace he gave me to heaven when I died . (it was a lucky dip prize at Glastonbury festival !)

Yes this should be made into a book. I was feeling very low and reading this has really lifted my spirits! Children are indeed a blessing.

Please which one is the grandparents' house thread?

My almost 3 year old, when asked to share a toy with her little sister said "No I can't share with her. It's a dangerous".

I guess she wanted to point out that it's a slippery slope and if you give 'em a little finger etc.

DS4 is going through a very extended "WHY?" stage. The other day he asked "Mum, why do things change?"
Ummmm....??

Me: 'You're the best boy in the whole world'
DS (5) 'I cant be the best boy, there must be a boy who is better than me'

My dd age 5 quizzed me about the Goldilocks story: if one bowl of porridge was too hot and one too cold, why didn't she mix them together and then they'd have been warm, and the next night asked about Three Little Pigs house of bricks, How did they get in and out? - you can't make a door of bricks can you.....I hope when she's a well paid criminal investigator she can keep me in my old age

Ooooh it's in classics!

My mum once asked my dsis why she couldn't just be nice and she replied 'I tried it once but it wasn't positively reinforced'. She was about 4. My dad is a psychology lecturer so that may have had something to do with it.

My Ds1 is obsessed with death lately, he seems utterly convinced (no idea where he picked the idea up) that he will die and come back in another body, I have explained that nobody knows what happens after death, some people believe this, other people believe that blah blah. But nope he can't be budged, who am I to argue.

He is quite different to my other 2 children, not so traditionally "clever" slow to talk and has to work at things, but blimey he comes out with corkers sometimes.

I also love his comment on throwing a coin into a wishing well, I asked him what he wished for, he said "I wish I had a coin" had me chuckling for quite awhile, we have some brilliant conversations.

"Can God make other gods?"

-from my 10 year old.
