Children ask some great questions, don’t they? I remember Bear and Monkey surprising me with a few when they were young, and stumping me with more than a few. Some of the stand-out ones include (all asked in a loud voice):
- “Does that man have a baby in his belly?”
- “Is that a boy or a girl?”
- “Is that lady God? Because if she’s not, I wish she’d be quiet so I can hear God.”
- “Is Frodo (our dog) in heaven?”
“After a discussion with her nanna she also wanted to know the answer to other vital questions such as who looked after God and how He could see, hear and speak without eyes, ears or tongue.”
The result is delightful – to read my review, click here; to read my interview with Teena, click here.
One of the things I love about small children is their capacity to see the world with fresh eyes. It can certainly take us by surprise when their questions give us an insight into how their minds work. I'm convinced I've learned more from my children than they've learned from me!
