Thoughts of a 5 year old

I was teaching Anush Silent Night and refining her Jingle Bells. We chanced upon this video on youtube- and Anush thought that she was "awesome".

Anush wondered how Santa would come home when the door is locked on Christmas eve?

We read a lovely book where a grand aunt dies. Anush wanted to know if we would get food when hungry, once we become a star. ( once we die)

Go here for a bookreview at ST - one book which made her exclaim" Amma this is making me very sad" and then towards the end " So kind na? They are both helping each other and making each other happy, correct?"

Five year olds are great thinkers indeed. And there sense of wonder is humbling as well.

@Starry: LOL!

My son also comes up with such interesting questions that leaves me wondering what the right answer should be...i guess, the truth is always the right answer.
