Most times it is difficult to be sure your kids understand abstract terms.
Charlie is obsessed with death now. He asks questions like how many ways can we die. do some people get to go past 100, what happens to all the blood in our body? sometimes I try to explain and sometimes. . I just take advantage.
He came from school with his water bottle still full, so I ask why didnt you drink water all day today and he went
"is it really important to drink water, we just pee it all out, so what's the point?'
so i say
'we don't pee it all out, our body uses it for many things."
I was going to go the whole 'hydration ' route but he made a face like he couldn't really be bothered and so I finished with
'our bodies need water for blood and you know if you don't have blood you die!!!
Empty water bottle this past week.
Lola woke up and said
"in my dream I was jumping on a trampoline"
I guess she understands what dreams are. wasn't so sure.
