In Love

My son and I have some of our best chats when we are driving in the car together.

Last week he threw one of his random questions at me. 'What's the difference between fancying and loving someone?'  Dear Lord, he's only eight but I still need to answer the question.

I took a deep breath and tried my best to explain.
'Well..... when you fancy someone you like the look of them.
When you love someone, you like what they say and love spending time with them.  You want to tell them stuff and listen to them.  You also fancy them.'

I'd love to tell you his reply but I'm sworn to secrecy.  It's very cute though.

  1. Aw, kids are so cute at that age.Then they grow up and barely grunt at you. Then they get older and get cars of their own, and drop you to the pub :)
