They’ve got an answer for everything, haven’t they? Except it’s rarely the answer you’d expect.
For example, there are the questions that obviously I should have known the answer to without even asking the question:
Me: Flea, why are your toy cars lined up on the stairs for me to fall over?
Flea: Because they’re waiting to start the race
Me: Flea, why is the towel on the floor in the kitchen?
Flea: Because I was giving the Power Ranger a bath before the battle.
Me: Flea, why is your scooter on top of the washing machine?
Flea: It’s resting.
Then there are the answers I defy anyone to explain or understand since they come from the mind of a five-year-old:
Me: Flea, why are you making that noise?
Flea: Because there’s a mad banana in the sky.
Sometimes there are answers that are – frankly – a little worrying:
Flea: I love your arm best of all, Mummy.
Me: Why’s that, then?
Flea: Because every time I see you, I just want to bite it off.
And then there's my favourite answer from this week – the one that explains the expression being made in the photo at the top of this post:
Me: Why are you making that face?
Flea: Because you said ‘sausages’ and now I am alive with joy, Mummy.
