Deep Thoughts

My little boy turned 6 today. I started this blog when he was 7 months old! After much arguing with his brother as to whether he classified as a Small kid or a Medium kid, I think it was confirmed that he is now officially Medium.

That brain is always going on my Medium son. You never know how much you don’t know until you live with a kid who’s full of questions:

– What’s the biggest stuffed animal in the world? (It’s a giant bunny in Italy; I also know many more world records now)

– How much gum would I have to swallow before it was a problem? (Let’s not find out)

– Do peanut butter and cheese go together? (He says yes, might just be saving face)

– What will the police do if you run a red light, speed, talk on your phone aaaand eat spaghetti while driving? (probably arrest you, says my cousin the police officer)

All these things I went over 35 years not even thinking to ask.

Today we read “Happy Birthday to You!” by Dr. Seuss. I read him this line:

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.

*Gears turning*

“So who is the SECOND most me-est person alive?”

Happy birthday to my sweet boy who always challenges me with his deep thoughts.

About the Author ()

I am a lifelong (award-winning!) cartoonist and mother of two delightful boys, aged 7 and 5. I like to view today's adventures in parenting as material for tomorrow's cartoon. Looking at family life through "cartoon-coloured glasses" helps me keep the all-important sense of humour required for raising kids... even for the events that don't seem so funny at the time.

    As always I loved the cartoon and got a chuckle out of it. Your son is an absolute dear and will obviously keep you on your toes for many, many years to come. 🙂

    Your six-year-old sounds a lot like my six-year-old. I now know what crustaceans eat…and of course what eats crustaceans!

    I love his comment about who is the second-most like him!

    That gum question is fun, the best is not to find out!
