Most parents know that children very often say remarkable things. What keeps us going are those precious moments when we can see our children’s sense of curiosity, humor, logic, justice and self-awareness come to life. This awareness is revealed in the delightful things they say—funny, clever, thought–provoking, sometimes a bit embarrassing. We think we won’t forget them, yet we do. So when our son Luciano began talking, encouraged by friends, I began to carry a small notebook with me and recorded his innocent observations, the little gems of that almost all children come up with. We think you might recognize some of these same ideas occurring to your children and smile with us. The following pages record some (but not all) of the comments made by our son between ages 2 and 5. I hope that parents who read them will find similarities with the innocent—yet sometimes profound—comments made by their own children. I hope that my recording these precious little moments will help readers remember their own children's formative years, and let them relive (if only for a moment) their own childhood and will bring a smile to their lips. I wish you happy reading. Enjoy! Ida Nalbandian
