So then popped the question, "Mummy...what are bones?!?"
So I tried showing him pictures of x rays, making him feel through his skin by his joints and explained that the hard thing under his skin were his bones.
"Like dinosaur bones Mummy?!?"
"YES!!! That's it!! Like dinosaur bones!!!"
Now why didn't I think about attacking it from that angle before?? Lolz:p
So now he understood what bones were and how they can break, and why they are important.
Now the funny part!
My husband and I had spent all night that night putting our Friday night 'sugar rush' inflicted kids to sleep:p Friday is fun night at our home so they went to sleep at about 11:00pm after snacks and stories and jumping around:p
So finally it was about 12:00 midnight and the hubby and I were ready to clock in as well. And as soon as our heads hit the pillow, up popped our 2 1/2 year old like a little daisy in the spring, from what we THOUGHT was deep slumber, AND asked the funniest thing with the most pathetic little dough eyes:-
"Mummy...Daddy....do you have bones?!!?"
LOL! We will never forget that moment Inshaa Allah! We both just cracked up!! It was so hilarious:p
What a funny thing to be asked at 12:01 AM :p
