Kids say the darnedest things:Why do we have Belly Buttons?

I have been asking talkative 3 year olds why they think we have belly buttons for a long time. Like I’ve said in other posts, I love the creative thing that come out of their little imaginations.
This week, I had two of the best responses ever:
One devout young man told me it’s because you have Jesus in your heart. Apparently, he went on to explain, Jesus gets there through your navel.
Hmmm, maybe that’s where the word “holy” is derived from?
Just when I thought that couldn’t be topped, another young man explained “you push the belly button to turn me off so I go to sleep!”. Ok parents raise your hands if you want to install that feature on your child!
