A Curious Child Asks About Life After Death. His Question Is Priceless.

When a child reaches the age of three or four, they have reached the question phase.

As a little one tries to understand the world around him, his favorite word is usually, “why?”

And kids, well, they certainly come up with some imaginative phrases.

A Joke A Day shared this funny story about a youngster with a pressing question about mortality.

Read what happened below.

A woman went to the beach with her children.

Her 4-year-old son ran up to her, grabbed her hand, and led her to the shore where a dead seagull lay in the sand.

“Mommy, what happened to him?” the little boy asked. “He died and went to heaven,” she replied.

The child thought for a moment and said, “And God threw him back down?”

Only from the mouth of a little one.

A child’s logic is adorably funny. It makes a parent wonder how they even come up with this stuff!

When it comes to life and death, the topic can be a little sensitive. But this toddler seems to have figured out a whole theory of his own.
