  1. Oh, you will understand him like no other gorgeous girl!
    What a gift your son is – and nothing worth having ever came easy now did it?!
    If we thought you were an observational genius (and you are) then wait until Finley sets out into the big wide world! Wow.

  2. i have two of the most adorable and amazing children in the world whom I love with everything in me, but in all of their originality they have never come up with anything like this. I am continually delighted by his precious mind. Thank you for sharing him with us.

  3. he breaks my heart! in the best possible way…children are so amazing,aren’t they?
    there’s a beautiful quote about how in loving another person, we see the face of God-and i think that is true of being loved too-especially by your children

  5. Finn is an amazing boy. I love the way that precious mind works!
    BTW.. you’ve now made me feel quite bad for my mum. I never coloured quietly either. 🙂

  6. I'm in danger of being gender stereotypical, but, those children who sit colouring in peacefully, are GIRLS! I have one of each and boy does my boy bounce while my girl colours in.

  7. Of my four children, my most difficult one is the one that I spend the most time trying to understand. I really have to work at it and I will admit that I struggle to truly know this child. I'm not sure that when he's a grown up that I will understand him =) But I'm praying about it. Blessings… Polly

  8. Oh my, out of the mouths of babes and all that–too cute and funny! Amazing how four-year-olds see the world and try to interpret it with their little imaginations. The ideas and questions they come up with are truly mind-boggling.

  9. What a marvel!! I love that you share a little bit of Finn with us. What precious ideas he comes up with. On a side note, I know he is celiac(I have two), but I couldn’t help notice his bright pink cheeks. I have two friends with children who both show their food alleries with bright pink cheeks. One was allergic to strwberries and you could see the results in minutes of him eating a strawberry, as his cheeks went very, very pink. It also caused behavior problems in him at a very young age. It might be worth something if you haven’t done it yet to try an elimination diet for some other things.Much love and prayers that his curiosity never changes. Wendy in Texas

  10. Your Finn is beyond precious~~~Your answers to his questions are delightful~~~
    I mentioned you on my blog today and just wanted to take a minute to thank you for sharing such pretty planner pages.
    Thank you Alison!
    Hugs,

  11. pure joy. I too have a little ‘finn’ of my own (actually 2) and they are harder but better than most to raise. My 9 year old is quite the comedian and when I asked him what was so great about his grandma he replied: she lets me swim, she gives me candy…she’ll be good for bail money someday!” oh how he likes to make me cringe!
