While we were at ECCC, we were actually surrounded by fellow parents as table neighbours, and like all parents, the topic of our kids came up. Specifically, the weird and oddly prescient things our children have said. I don’t know where this idea comes from, but I think even I remember thinking the same thing when I was little? Like, I know there’s an adage about a generations having to move aside to give room for the next one, but I feel that’s a little esoteric a thought for a three-year-old?

The concept of death is a weird thing to hear a child talk about. Like, they have zero emotional connection to the concept of death, which makes them unintentionally super creepy. If she starts staring at television static, send help.
