Massimo is 4-1/2 years old. Although he is young in age, some of the things he says are pretty profound. Sometimes he can act out like a typical kid, and then other times something amazing comes out of his mouth.
As I mentioned on a previous post, my son Massimo has a way with words.
I think all kids have the ability of making us feel in awe and special.
Here is the latest Massimo conversation that left me thinking:
Massimo: Mom, when I am older I am going to have 4 kids. They will be 4 boys.
Me/Mom: Really? Are you sure?
Massimo: I am sure I will have 4 boys. I will let my 4 boys listen to any music they want and watch any television show they want to see. If they want ice cream they can eat it any time.
Me/Mom: Okay, I’ll wait and see that.
Massimo: When my 4 boys are older I will die. When I die I will go to you in heaven. I love you Mom.
I don’t know why this simple conversation touches my heart. It is the innocent way that a young kid sees life and then death. It is the way my child conceptualizes his love for me.
What amazing things have your kids passed on to you lately? I would love to hear your stories! Have a wonderful day!
