This morning when our 5 year old woke up and called me. First thing we had two little conversations starting with questions from her.
She asked me what leeches are. I told her they live in water, but not where we are in the world. Then she asked ‘so, do whales have them?’, and I realised I hadn’t specifically mentioned sweet water, and she first thought of the sea.
Immediately following that, she asked me if kangoroos are already born with their pouches. I said I didn’t know but, grabbing my phone, that we could look it up on the internet. She: On the internet? But who writes that?
I wish all of us grown-ups would more often stop and ask who writes that on the internet.
I love the perceptiveness contained in such questions she asks.
