Let me just preface this post with the fact that these two children are 4 years apart. However, they do have very similar personalities. With that being said, this was the conversation going on behind me while I was doing the dishes....
Meriam: Why do we get along so well?
Abu: I dunno.
Meriam : It's because we were friends before we were born.
Abu: (ponders) Maybe.
Meriam: Yeah, we're twins.
Abu: We aren't twins.
Meriam: Well we were supposed to be but we got separated before birth...I got left behind and was born later.
Do you think we were sperm or eggs when we played together?? Personally I'd like to think we hung out in mom's ovaries over hanging out in dad's testes!!

I pick up the phone to call...
Meriam: Call my dad!
Me: I am.
Meriam: Well you should narrate what you're doing because I can't see.
Me: You can open your eyes you know.
she continues after talking to her dad....
Meriam: How do blind people do this? Do they see everything in black? How do they know what black is if they haven't ever seen colors? I feel like I am missing out on everything going on in the world because I can't see!
Me: You can still open your eyes you know.
Meriam: How do blind people entertain themselves if they can't see anything? What do they do for fun??
Silent pause because I really don't know how to answer or what to say...
Meriam (panicked): Hello?? Did you leave me???
Me: I'm driving the car!! Where am I going to go?? (head shake) Meriam, you can OPEN your eyes...
