Ah yes… the questions our kids ask us. There are few things better than exploring the world with your children. And now we’re lucky enough to have the world wide web at our fingertips. So when your kid asks how worms have babies or what an atom looks like or where Timbuktu is, you can give them a real answer based on facts instead of a big fat “I don’t know” or some myth you heard.
Sydney comes over with a laundry list of questions and while we may have answers to most of them, we certainly don’t know everything. When she hears a response of “I’m not sure”, she instantly replies “Let’s Google it!”. Lots of times she wants to see where a place is. We have zoomed in on villages in Africa, cities in Australia and our own homes. Sometimes she expects to be able to see herself in our house. This is just six year old hope. Someday she’ll understand the limitations of Google.
Miles loves watching steam engine trains on youtube, his favorite Jason Mraz song ‘Outdoors’ or The Wheels on the Bus. He also likes looking at pictures of insects, zoo animals and family. Skype is a pretty awesome feature for a toddler too. How cool to be able to talk with G-ma and play peek-a-boo with her from home.
I look forward to the littlest ones growing up and being able to explore the world through their (& our) fingertips.
What fun questions have yours asked you lately?
