3-year-old logic.

Finn has reached the age where he is figuring out the why of the world.  It must have been the 14 million times he asked why so far in his life.  Problem is, most often his logic makes perfect sense to me and I can’t argue with it.  So I’m seriously considering going along with his logic, and would encourage the world to do the same.  Here’s the first (and surely not the last) in Finn’s logic.


We helped Grandma and Grandpa put up and decorate their Christmas tree, which delighted Finn.  After we had finished Grandma turned off all the lights so we could sit for a moment in the magic of Christmas spirit.  Even at 3, Finn was taken in by the peace, love, and joy of the moment.  It wasn’t about the presents or candy, it was about the heart of Christmas-the spirit.

Finn did NOT want to go home (I couldn’t disagree, there’s something so peaceful about that, I wouldn’t mind living in that space all year long).  He informs us that Josh is sitting down and as long as Daddy is sitting down, we don’t have to leave.


Finn was having a really tough time going to bed, he came down twice (which never happens).  Honestly, I don’t know how he got out of his shackles.  Trying to think of anything that would possibly allow him to squeeze just one more minute out of the day, he informs us that Tanner doesn’t have to go to bed, why should he have to go to bed?


Finn’s favorite TV show is Busytown Mesteries.  He loves Huckle.  I’ve seen it so many times I want to stab myself in my eye with a fork when he asks to watch it.  Last night as soon as we arrived home he asks Can I watch Huckle?

Josh: Why don’t you just marry Huckle?!?!

(yes we understand this is childish, however, this is the part of parenting you do so you don’t stab yourself in the eye–see above)

Finn:  Yea!

Me: No I want to marry Huckle.

Finn: But you can’t because Huckle is small and I’m small so I can marry Huckle.

Me: But I wanna marry Huckle.

Finn:  But you’re a girl.  I’m a boy and Huckle is a boy so I can marry Huckle.


Can’t argue with his logic, right?  I guess the government just needs it explained to them in easy words, so maybe a 3-year-old is the perfect person to help them understand!  It’s sad when a 3-year-old can grasp something that educated adults can’t.  It also tells me hatred and prejudice is taught at some point and not innate.

Stay tuned for more logic lessons from Finn, I’m sure there are many more to come from his wise conclusions!!  We can all learn a lot.

  1. Unfortunately, since the government can’t seem to play nicely, even logic that simple will fall on deaf ears. It’s like watching a meltdown in the toy aisle sometimes..

    He’s so sweet, as always say, and he melts my heart! And by the way, not only intelligent and wise, but very logical, who doesn’t want this combination? Finn is great! Congratulations for such a wonderful son! (Well, wonderful parents lead to this!)
