The best whhhyy? story
Why story

I have gotten involved in politics and Luke has started watching the news with me, the best why moment was when the NPA decided to not continue with the case against Jacob Zuma, Luke sat next to me and asked

"Why is he not going to jail if he was stealing?"

Followed by,

“Mommy, maybe his mommy never punished him when he was a little boy that’s why he is naughty now, we must ask his mommy why she never punished him”

A few days later he saw the election posters and asked why the naughty man was still allowed to be on the posters and why there were so many of them.

It took a lot of explaining to him, that sometimes bad and naughty people manage to get out of going to jail and that we just have to try and carry on, but it does not mean we have to be naughty as well.

Another funny why moment.

I am a single parent and Luke really wants a brother and a sister, I explained we need a daddy for that, he reaction “WHY I don’t have a daddy, so WHY do they need one?”, we were in church at the time sat next to the pastors wife who almost fell of the chair laughing as I tried hard not to blush and tried to figure out a way to explain to a 5 year old the logistics of conception. His 6 year old friend came to the rescue and told him – because God says you need a mommy and daddy to have a baby.
