Life, the Universe, and Everything According to My Five-Year-Old

This month I’m taking part in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge and will be posting every day except Sundays. My readers voted for the theme “Life, the Universe, and Everything According to My Five-Year-Old”. During bedtime discussions and colouring sessions, my daughter will finally be providing the answers to the philosophical problems and unsolved mysteries that have puzzled humanity’s greatest thinkers for centuries.

Does magic exist?

Me: Do you think magic exists?

L: No, ’cause if I wanna be a superhero I don’t have magic powers! When I try it doesn’t work.

Me: But do you think some people might have magic powers?

L: Yeah. Some people can do magic. But not me.

Me: Who can do magic?

L: Harry Potter….Santa, the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny.

Me: Where do you think magic comes from?

L: From a wand, of course!

Me: Ah, I see. Are there any other ways we could do magic?

L: Well, I think I could do magic in my dreams. I had real wings to fly, not pretend ones. But when it’s the morning I try to get my wings and I can’t get them.

Me: What can people do with their magic?

L: [grinning] Make chocolate appear, make thirteen mummies appear…

Me: Is that what you would do if you were magic?

L: Yep. And I could eat thirteen chocolates in one go!
