It’s always surprising to hear kids talk, because you never know what smart things they will say. They can be more profound than some of the most well-known philosophers. Among the silly things that come out of their mouths, there are often pearls too. So, while it’s easy to dismiss some things as the musing of youngsters, it’s also good to keep your ears open. Take this video where a child discusses his grandmother.
The video shows a young boy discussing why God creates grandmothers. He says his grandmother is 100 years old and has a lot of wisdom to impart. He calls her “Maw-Maw” and she seems to be one of his closest family members. It’s great that he recognizes the wisdom of age at such a young one himself. Then again, he’s not a teenager yet, where he will be convinced he has the answer to everything already.
He shows maturity beyond his years. “If she wasn’t on this Earth, then I wouldn’t be on this Earth..” True, because then his mother would never have been born and then his father wouldn’t have met her and gotten married and then they wouldn’t have had him… so yes, he owes his existence to a very specific chain of events. He should thank God for that, yes. I’m sure his “Maw-Maw” thanks God every day too for this little child.
Of course, the ironic thing is that he called her the “king” of grandmas. Obviously, she would really be the queen of grandmas, but let’s not tell him that. This video was from 2008, so I’m sure that he’s already seen the video numerous times and realized his innocent mistake. The point was that he loved his grandmother a great deal and that was all that mattered. It was sweet talking all matter-of-fact about it.
Wasn’t this kid great? I don’t say that just because he’s wearing a karate gi in the video and might have advanced to a high enough level to kick my butt now. If he’s reading this, please know I was joking. What did you think? Please leave a comment below.
