Also flies can be childless :)

I had a perfect day at the swimming pool with my niece aged 8. She noticed that I saved a small fly from the swimming pool. She asked me what was I doing. I explained that everybody loves to live, including a fly. So if I can, I try to help (I know it is very silly, but this is the way I am). My heart melted when I saw my niece saving the first fly. I joked so I said that when the saved fly would come home she would tell her kids that there was a beautiful small girl with a kind heart that saved her life that day.

My niece said nothing, she was thinking something, but I didn't put any attention to that.

We went swimming (btw, I am exhausted. It is difficult to swim for 2 hours in a swimming pool that is 2,20 meters deep with a child that doesn't swim perfectly) and after a while my niece said: "Klara, what are the names of your children?".
I was confused, I said to her: "You know I don't have children. Why on earth are you asking me that?".
The niece replied: "You see, exactly that. You can't know whether the fly that I saved has children or not. Maybe she does. Maybe she doesn't."

Her brilliant comment made me laugh. What a clever little girl she is. 


  1. This is such a cute story. I am glad that you had a good day!

  2. That little girl is going to grow up wiser and more compassionate, thanks to you. What a gift to the world.

  3. What a lovely story!
    And what a thinker your niece is. What a sweet, understanding mind she has, with your help!

  4. Klara, I love this post and keep thinking about it.
