How children think

I overheard my boys asking each other questions the other day; it really made me laugh out loud, I decided to take part too as it was too great an opportunity to miss when they were being reflective. 

Here are some of the highlights:

Why do tigers growl?

[Youngest] because they have a face

Why do hens go cluck cluck?

[Youngest] Because they poo eggs!

What came first chicken or egg?

[Youngest] the egg, mummy one can fly it on their wing, for a little bit, then went on a van then went on a rocket for a little bit loads and went weeee!

Well who else is as pleased as me we have finally solved that long-standing debate!

Why do octopus have eight arms?

[Youngest] Because they swim in the water – “wrong” said eldest "because that’s how they have been born!"

Why does it get dark at night?

[Eldest] because it’s 7 o clock

Why do people have blood?

[Both] Because they have boobs

Hmmm not sure they quite get the working of the human body yet!  But they already have a fascination with boobs!

[My question] Why do people get married?

[Eldest] Because they have to have children

[Youngest] Because they are old

 Well I do hope all my followers are feeling suitably educated after this post!
