The other day Aidan was talking about super heroes like Super Why.
He said “Daddy you are super.” “Mommy you are super.”
Anthony said “Aidan you are super.” and Aidan got upset.
Aidan said “I am not super, I am special.”
I said “That is right Aidan you are special.”
Aidan then said “Yes, God made me special and he loves me very much.” A pause then, “And I love him too.” then without missing a beat, “Who is God?”
Anthony looked at me and I answer “God is an omniscient, omnipresent being who made the universe.” ( I see no reason to talk down to him.)
Aidan quickly asked “Is he real? Does he have legs?”
Anthony and I laughed and I had to admit that while I think he is real, I have no idea if he has legs.
You can’t beat a preschooler for asking the hard questions.
