Tonight at bedtime Rebecca asked me why we have blood. What does it do? Why do peoples have it?
I explained it was to keep our hearts beating, and our brains thinking and our bodies healthy. She wanted to know why blood gets out when we cut ourselves and how we heal up again. We found our pulses and listened to each others hearts beat. I asked Rebecca where her heart was, and she pointed. I asked her where her tummy was and she pointed. Thinking I'd go onto "lungs" I did some exaggerated breathing. "What's this called Rebecca?"
She thought for a moment...."Doing a big poo"
There ended the lesson.
