Early anatomy lesson

Little children never cease to amaze me with what they come out with. Yesterday, was another classic example which I wanted to share with you, but I also wanted it documented, so I would not forget it (that’s the great thing about blogging). This made me smile for quite some time!

Yesterday, BB (age 5) drew this picture of a person showing what’s inside us! Don’t ask me what on earth spurred him on to thinking about what is inside?!

The other yellow bit is the wee and it goes all the way down and comes out at the bottom through the winkie.

The Part with blue dots on, is the food and ‘dirt’ we eat (his words, not mine).

Then he got thinking, how girls are different to boys so he drew this……

I just love hearing and seeing what children come out with, there is something, just so innocent and naive about it. I really don’t ever want to forget.


Wot So Funee?

  1. That is a lot of snot! Only this morning my 4yo wanted to know what was inside his skin, and was it squishy…?! Their minds are amazing!

  2. Oh I was just about to say how impressive that drawing was for a 5 year old. But I was expecting the labels to be the intestine, or the pancreas, rather than snot and wee. Back to being 5 ;) Thanks for linking up :)

    They never fail to amuse do they! Nice post to end the night on :) oh to be 5 again x

  5. Hilarious! Was just thinking that’s an amazing drawing for a 5 year old until I read it was snot and wee. Nice that food (and dirt) have been included too :)

  6. LOVED this – one of the most enjoyable posts I’ve read in ages. Sooooo cute #funee

  7. Great what occupies little minds! #PoCoLo

  8. I love it – what a fab picture! #pocolo

  9. Brilliant! It’s amazing what they come up with. Sometimes things you say without thinking have the funniest impressions on them. I’ve seen 11 year olds draw pictures of anatomy with hollow legs for the food. #pocolo

    lol lol i love it! :-)

  11. Well at least he got the ‘look’ of the intestines right even if the names aren’t!! Fantastic. I love kids :) Thank you for linking to PoCoLo x

  12. Definitely keepsakes! It’s so much fun hearing kids interpretation of things.

  13. Brilliant, that’s definitely one to keep for ever.

  14. Cute! He’ll love seeing those when he’s older. My 3 year old noticed his sister ‘has no winky’ the other day. When I asked him what she had instead,he said ‘two bottoms.’ I left it at that. #MBPW

      Lol! Yeah, I would leave it there for a bit too….time will come when we have to explain further, but I hope not yet :-)

  15. fantastic! what a great imagination.

    He probably wonders where the snot goes when it doesn’t come out his nose?

    i think he’s drawn it really well!

      Lol! I didn’t want to delve too deeply into his actual thought process, for fear of where it may take us! :-)
