Random Thoughts

Even a four-year old has random thoughts.   Four year olds generally just ask lots of questions, but once in a while they surprise you with a statement that makes you wonder what goes on in that little head.   Out of the blue, my grandson starts talking about “girl babies.”

He says, “Girl babies look like boy babies when they are born.”
I’m caught off guard with that statement and can only say, “Oh yeah?”                                        “Yeah”, he continues, “girl babies and boy babies look the same when they come out.”         “Why is that?” I ask.                                                                                                                           “Cuz the girl baby’s hair is short, just like a boy baby’s”, says the 4 year old expert.                 “Well, how can you tell a boy from a girl if they look the same?”                                               “They’re different in the front”, he says with even more authority in his voice.              Now, I’m really interested in how much this little wizard knows.   I ask him, “What is different in the front?”                                                                                                                           He points to the top of his forehead at the hair line and says, “Girls have shorter hair in the front”.

  1. That’s a keeper.  I know 4-year-olds are at the peak of asking questions, cuz I had an article published with that theme.  It was, Daddy Is Tomorrow Saturday?  Beth asked me that . . . she was really asking if I was going to be home.  Maybe I’ll send a copy to you.

    I remember her questions too.  Like why is the sky blue?




  2. My grandson is always asking questions and telling me stories. Last week he told me he was going to have a baby and I told him he couldn’t because he was a boy. He told me he could cause boys can do anything.
