Kids’ Logic

July 13th, 2007 • Posted in News |

I was driving home with my 4-year-old son yesterday, watching a nice sunset, enjoying some time alone with him. He loves my little two-seater, although it had been raining a bit and we still had the roof up. We were chatting, singing along to the stereo (he loves The Sex Pistols and Flogging Molly … it’s great to train them young!). Then out of the blue he said: “My Nanny died.”

“Yes,” I said.

“Why?” (… that endless question that comes again and again …)

“Well,” I said, “she got very, very poorly, and then she died.”


“Because that’s sometimes what happens.”

“Oh.” He thought about things for a while. “So she’s better now,” he said.

I was going to say something more but decided not to. I spent a while thinking about what he’d said. She’s better now. And I decided that’s a nice way to think.
