Lincoln & Wonder

Posted in he said she said by enisea on 28/11/2011

Lincoln’s mother told me that he had told her that I had told him that rabbits turn into frogs.

I was talking about the tadpoles.  Lincoln was probably still looking at the rabbits.  It made me smile and warmed my heart that this beautiful four year old trusted me so much that he didn’t second guess me and thought to inform his mother of this news.  Which, in reply to her puzzled expression, he matter of factly justified, “Nicole said so”.

W: I’m making the superhero to hit the bad guy!
N: What can the superhero do?
W: He can fly!
N: What did the bad guy do wrong?
W: He made me laugh…
N: Was it a bad laugh?
W: He also laughed at the superhero.

Need I justify any longer why everyone ought to have a conversation with a four year old?
