My kid, Little Sister #2, asks questions or says something almost every day that either stump me or make me laugh. I’ve listed a few examples from this week. Obviously, my kid is curious about mortality lately. The school counselor said that it’s normal.
“What happens if you keep your eyes open?” I answered, “They’ll get dry.” Then she asked, “So will it make you die?”
“I’m going to play with them but first, I’m going to eat their ice cream.”
“So you’re old and that’s dangerous because then you’ll die.” She meant that I’m old.
“Was Little Sister #1 in your belly when Darling Daughter was born?”
“Mommy, did you notice that the trees are dying because the leaves are falling?”
