Conversations with a Seven Year Old

I love the conversations I have with Q. He always has interesting insights into the world. 

Tonight, we were reading a Black Lagoon book, when he pointed out the differences in his gym teachers.  He even compared them to the character in the Gym Teacher from the Black Lagoon. Hilarious! 

Last night, while reading out of our chapter book, he got frustrated because the character wasn't using  correct grammar. He felt that the author was teaching him really really bad ways to talk. 

One day last week, he decided that now that he is seven he needs to stay up later and his own phone. You could tell he had put thought into the argument.  He had reasons the phone would help us and where the money would come from. 

Each day, I get to drive this amazing little boy to and from school. We get our Mommy and son time, which is always enlightened by intriguing conversations. 

You make me proud to be your mommy.  I love you Qman! 


  1. So cute. I would love to hear his reasonings for a phone. :)

  2. Yup! 7's have a lot they know and a lot they have to learn about the world. Fun to have conversations with them as the beginnings of logic and reasoning are developing.
