JB is my 4 year old. His mother made him a chocolate milkshake, with a blob of ice-cream floating in it. However, at first sight, JB obliviously misidentified the ice-cream. With glee he announced:

It’s even got bread in it!

So, I asked my good lady if she could make one for me, too. Yum!

This week JB, my 4-year old said to me:

When I die, I’ll be able to see my skeleton, won’t I Daddy?

I wasn’t sure were to begin with this one.

When will you die, Daddy?

March 31, 2009

Like any healthy 4-year-old, Jonathan is figuring out the world around him. Sometimes his conclusions can be quite amusing. This morning the conversation went something like this:

JB: When am I going to die, Daddy?

Me: Not until you’re very, very, very, very, very, very old. So, it isn’t something you have to worry about at the moment.

JB: When we die, we’ll all go to heavan to see Grandad, won’t we?

Me: Yes, that’s right.

JB: When will you die, Daddy?

Me: Not until I’m very, very, very, very, very, very old.

JB: That will be soon, then, won’t it?

What is in your Heart?

July 8, 2008

My son, JB,  is now 3½. A couple of days ago I caught him singing these words to himself:

Open your heart, open your heart, open your heart

I wondered what he was thinking, so when he stopped singing, I asked him about it.


JB, what do you think is in your heart?

JB, after a moment’s pause:




Well, I’ve got love in my heart.

Mummy, what have you got in yours?

L (my wife):

I’ve got love in my heart, too.


So, JB, what do you think is in your heart?

JB (no pause this time):
