'Out of the mouths of babes' - sometimes a thought or utterance comes out of her mouth and it stops me in my tracks, as either it is a question I can't answer easily, or more interestingly a question I had never thought of asking. Now some of these utterances are complete nonsense, some just cute, and some downright insightful!! Below I have shared a random selection, they may mean nothing to you, they may make you laugh, you may think I am being 'fatherly blind spotted' to their significance, or maybe, just maybe you will find them insightful.......
