Keana is continually amazing me with how thoughtful and perceptive she is. She always has, ever since she was a baby really. And the best part about many of her “earth-shattering” moments is that they come straight out of the blue and knock me off my parental rocker.
For instance, on 12/17/10 Keana just asked me, “What if we’re not alive? What if we’re all dead and we’re just dreaming this?” Then she said, “Because you know that song, ‘row row row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is just a dream’? I don’t think I’m alive because I don’t know what alive is.” Then she pranced off to her room to play.
I tried to catch the moment in a follow-up interview; see what you think.
