Questions From a 4 Year Old

In the spirit of my post back in June, Questions From a 3 Year Old, here are some questions Cowgrit has heard recently from our youngest boy (since he turned 4 in October):

We were dining at a local restaurant, and Calfgrit4 asked about the waitress: “Mommy, is she a stranger?”

“Yes,” Cowgrit answered.

“Then why does she bring us food?”

While sitting at an intersection in town: “Mommy, how do the red, yellow, and green lights work?”

“Mommy, what makes us have to go to the bathroom?”

Cowgrit explained the biology.

Sitting at the kitchen table during dinner: “Mommy, you don’t have a penis? Daddy has one, why don’t you?”

Cowgrit replied, “I am a girl, and girls don’t have one.”

Later, while getting ready for bed, he asked a follow up: “If you don’t have a penis, how do you go to the bathroom? Do you have a hole?”

Cowgrit: “Yes.”

Calfgrit4: “Well pull down your pants and show me.”

Cowgrit mentioned out how late it was getting, and he needed to hurry and brush his teeth before they ran out of time to read a book.

She advises: Long distraction speeches work best to make them forget a question.

    LOL, this is great. I think I’m going to share this story with some of my friends when we get into “funny things kids say”.

  6. I remember distinctly going to the bank with my mom when I was probably 4 years old. As we were leaving, a gentleman approached and said hi and gave me a quarter (not sure why… hmm). After he left, I asked if he was a stranger. Yes, my mom replied. Well, then, why wasn’t there a hole in the wall where he’d broken in to rob the bank?
