Conversations with a nearly-four-year-old.

1. Watching the RAAF Roulettes aerobatic aircraft team from our back yard:

Him: Are they coming back?

Me: I don’t think so. I can’t hear them. I think they’ve gone.

Him: Yes they are. They’re coming back. I can hear them!

Me: I think that’s a truck in the next street.

Him: No, I can hear them.

Me: I think they are a long way away. They are too far away for you to hear them.

Him: I can hear them. I’ve got very sensible ears.

2. On a pedestrian footbridge high above the river:

Him: That’s a long way down to the water.

Me: I’ve got an idea. Why don’t we find a stone and drop it in?

Him: No, don’t do that. Don’t throw it in.

Me: Why don’t you want to throw a stone into the river?

Him: It might be a beautiful stone.
