Today, in the bath, Faith asked me what happens when we stop breathing.
I didnt want to outright say we would die, I mean she’s only 4, so I said that if we stopped breathing our brains wouldn’t work anymore.
She thought about this for a moment and then said, ‘If we didn’t have brains we would be… zombies!’ This was accompanied by hand/claw gestures and growling.
At this point was so proud of her I could have squealed*.
She then goes on to say, ‘And I like the word zombie, you know why? Because it sounds like zzzzzzzzzzzzz. Also Z is for Zod from Superman.’
Paul and I definitely did something good with this kid!
*Fine, there was actual squealing.
