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.
A Sobering Moment
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.
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.
We See Clear Areas of Improvement
Arguments happen from time to time - we all know that. None of us are perfect, and even the most even-tempered people can get heated every once in a while. This guy got into an argument with his fiancee – we don't know the details of the argument, but it seems to have been bad enough for the daughter to step in and give her account.
This is harsh, but we bet the guy would admit it's true. At least the kid pointed out that he's doing some things right. She's working on the compliment sandwich.
Time to Move On
So, not only did this guy have to deal with the pain of someone breaking up with him, but then he had a little kid throw his pain right into his face. You're a good friend, kid.
However, having gone through a breakup or two in our lives, we might be so bold as to say that the kid had the right idea – go play some tag or hopscotch or Minecraft with the kid to get your mind off of it. It's not gonna be easy, and we can't guarantee anything, but it might just make you feel better.
