Kanna was not well from last few days. He couldn’t go to school even today, that’s 3 days in a row. But being sick doesn’t make a 4-year-old to lay down and rest all the time. He wanted to play ‘the Yes-No’ game. In this game, one person tries to make the other one say yes or no. When you say yes or no, you are out of the game. He got this game from Peppa Pig.
So it was my turn to make him say yes or no. And I started with my questions. Here goes:
“Are you happy, Kanna?”
He nodded yes.
I continued, “Why are you happy? You are not well. You can’t go to school. Then why are you happy?”
He replied,”Because I like to be happy.”
How simple isn’t it? Have you ever thought to be happy because you like to be happy? I haven’t, not until now! His reasoning amazed me. Whoever said age makes you wise was wrong. Here barely 5-year-old kid is teaching me life lessons without making a big fuss about it.
Thus turned a simple yes-no game session into a wisdom sharing segment by Kanna.
Linking this to NaBloPoMo November – Day 19.
