Tonight’s contribution to “Kids say amazing things”

Tonight, while walking my dogs – and with her in a backpack – my daughter and I were making up stories about what would happen if, all of a sudden, the dogs became flying dogs and we jetted into the sky.  At one point, she said – “what if I fall out of the pack and land on my head and break my head”  So I suggested “since it’s a make believe story, let’s have your hat turn into a helmet so that doesn’t happen”.  She added “and have armor on me”

I then mumbled “As a parent, I wish I could put armor on you all the time so that you’ll never get hurt”  She clearly heard me because she then shared what I think is a pretty profound statement (especially for a 5 yr old):

“But I will, because that’s what life is.”

  1. And as your children get bigger and older you want the armor to get stronger and stronger and bigger and bigger.
