12 Of The Most Insightful Things My 3-Year-Old Brother Has Said To Me

“People are not for sale.”
“I love you because I think you’re the best girl in the world. And I love you a hundred.”
“I love you means I like you a lot, and I want you to be happy.”
“Life is about home. And ice cream.”
“You can’t fight with people because it’s mean, and it’s not nice. And their feelings will have to go to the hospital and get a bandaid.”
“The best thing about life is that you love people.”
“Sometimes you just need a nap and a hug. Or chocolate milk.”
“Animals are like people with fur, they just talk to us in meows.”
“The world goes round and round and doesn’t stop so we get dizzy from spinning. It gets dark, but then the sun comes up. Into the moon.”
“Mommys are for protecting you. So I’m going to be sweet to her, and protect her too.”
“I cry when you’re gone because I miss you, because I love you more than dump trucks.”
“Okay, I’m going to be the daddy and you can be the other daddy, and she will be the baby, and we’ll be a family.”
