Yeah, okay, fine, but let’s focus on the important stuff here. We don’t know what the little girl was dealing with here, but it’s nice to see that her dad was there to make things a little easier. Death probably doesn’t seem as final to most young kids.
It might not start to actually become something they consider until they’re in high school or college. Maybe even after that. Lots of young people don’t have any kind of life insurance, even if they might want to have it around.
Yeah, Thanks Kid
Kids are known to go on the offensive. They'll fire off broadsides like they're at Midway, hardly caring who they hit with their vicious truths. Trust us, you almost never have to tell anyone that they have a lot of pimples. The mirror tells them every time they go to the bathroom.
The best way to get back at the kid for this kind of thing is find them in, oh, nine or ten years, and deliver the same thing, verbatim, as they're glumly trying to wash their face to get all the oil off. That's when you strike.
It's Almost as if He's Trying to Tell Me Something
Maybe it's because a lot of kids spend a good amount of time at gut height, but they really seem to love bringing up how big a person is, whether that's because of pregnancy or just plain old “too many pizzas.”
Of course, kids don't really start to get big until they hit the double digits, so maybe this tot just didn't realize how small he really was in comparison to everything.
See These Hands, Kid?
There's just no good way to get back at a kid who brings this kind of thing to bear. You can't really clap back, because either they don't understand what you say, or they'll just burst into tears. And you certainly can't use your physical might – the authorities frown on such a thing. So what can you do?
Nothing, really. Let them have their time in the sunshine. You know that darkness will come to cover their beauty and youth. One day. And then you'll be there, reassuring them that it will be alright – everybody bows to time.
Well, That Answers That Question
Kids will figure things out eventually, but before a certain age, they don't really get the ins and outs of how a baby is formed. Unless you're an underwater equine, guys don't hold the baby in their tummy like women do.
So, this kid asked a question that is pretty easy to answer, all things considered. Then again, the way this kid asked the question makes us feel like he or she already knew the answer and was just trying to give this guy a burn. From the mouth of babes, they say, but sometimes the truth is already clear.
