Devin the Philosopher

Devin and I had quite the philosophical conversation this morning on the way to school.

He was telling me that camels have humps. He then started singing the song (not quite sure of the proper title) "Alice the Camel has 2 Humps..." but he was wondering why Alice turns into a horse when she has no more humps. I told him it was because she had no more humps, but that really its just a silly song.

Well Devin, being the thinker that he is, wanted to know what happened to the humps. "Do they pop like bubbles?"

I thought that was pretty darn clever. "Nope, really Devin, its just a silly song but you can ask your teacher when we get to school." Sometimes kids just need some confirmation from someone besides their mother. I guess Mom really doesn't know everything?!?!?

Anyway, as soon as we walked into school he walked right up to Miss Katie and started asking her about Alice and the humps. Miss Katie had no clue what was going on, poor thing! I quickly explained. The 3 teachers that were near-by all commented that Devin would ask about the theorist side of the song. My little wise man!

I love the reasoning kids come up with for why things happen. Do they pop? Classic!
