Conversations with a four year old

October 19, 2009 at 3:13 pm (Conversations with a 4 year old)

Driving down the street last week, Evan and I had this little conversation …
4year old:  It’s hot outside.  You know when it’s hot sometimes a storm comes?
Me: That’s right.  We might actually have a storm tonight.
4year old: Yep.  And sometimes storms brings lightning.
Me: That’s right.  And when it starts to do that, we have to go inside.
4year old:  But God is always with us & he will protect us.
Me: That’s right Evan God IS always with us.  But it’s still good to go inside when the lightning comes.
4year old – But I’m not afraid of the lightning.
Me: And why not?
** Now at this point, I was fully expecting the conversation to begin it’s usual circle … knowing full & well that Evan would once again say “because God is always with us” … but it didn’t exactly go that way …
4year old:  Because I’m a boy.
Me: Oh.
4year old:  But you’re a girl & Megan is a girl and girls are afraid of lightning.
Me: We are?
4year old:  Yes, because girls always scream!
