Conversation on our way to school.

The Little Miss is in the 110's of questions phase. Our conversation in the car on our way to school this morning went something like this:
A: " Mommy, why do daddy shave?"
Me: " Because men have hair on their face, some of which they don't want there. It is called beards and moustaches."
A: " Oh! Why do they have hair on their faces?"
Me:" That's the way that Jesus made men."
A: " Why did He make them like that?"
Me:(After thinking a while) "Because years ago it was very cold and people didn't have nice warm clothes like we have today and the hair kept them warm, just like M & B"
A: (After a while) : "So, where were the mommies and children when it was so cold? "
Me: " They stayed indoors when it was very cold"
A: "Did Jesus not care if the kids could not play outside?"

OK, what now? Caught out! Should have seen this one comming.


  1. Isn't it amazing how kids think? They're far more clever than they ever get credit for!

  2. OMGosh! Kids really do just come out with zingers, don't they?
    Just incredible how her mind was working!
    What did you say to her????

  3. I said that Jesus always cares about kids no matter what - and was saved by just then arriving at school.

  4. HA HA HA HA HA. That is too funny. Seriously, from the mouths of babes we mums will always be caught out.

  5. Disqus & dial up = not friendly at all!

    such a cute post.  Polly still comes out with the most amazing questions that i often don't have the answers for.

    will have to remember to look at your blog for the answers seeing as you have it covered!

  6. I couldn't see Disqus from home at all last night so couldn't comment - this is very cute though - the things they come up with are some of the best parts of parenting for me.

    I will mumble something about hormones to mine :)

  7. Bless her, smart little cookie. 

  8. @f78c8c676bc7fac42d25f1108d9e2a40 And to think she was only 3 and a half at the time.

  9. Very cute.

    LOL!  You can never fool a child...they are way to clever.

  11. Cute! isn't it amazing how quickly time flies! We started blogging almost at the same time... I must do this: republish some of my earlier posts to remind me of how quickly my babies are growing up  x x

  12. Blast from the past! Great idea! :D
    They always catch us out! ;-)

  13. Kids always ask the cutest questions :)
    I like the idea of posting old blog's nice to remember what they did when they were small!

  14. Hahaha, kids - too clever sometimes!


So what's on your mind?
