Out of the blue, Mathew asks me "who rules the world? ...is it god?"
I said "some people think it's god."
Then mathew says "maybe the world rules itself!"
Oh, how I loved to hear that. But I was also so surprised to hear such a profound realization come out of my 5-year old son, so I had to ask him, "where did you hear that from?"
He said, "Nowhere, I just thought of it."
...the conversation continued on about presidents, rulers, kings, and such.
I love having these conversations with him!
P.S. some of you may have heard of this story (on facebook), but I had to add to my blog, after all, this is part of my memory bank
