I've had similar experiences with my children, that I've written about here before, and thought I'd post this as it has a ring of truth about it, in the context being discussed :-)
From the Greek version of the Gospel of Thomas (the Sayings of Jesus) found at Oxyrhynchus, Egypt and the Coptic version of the same.
Saying 4 (pOxy. 654.21-27)
[Jesus said,] "A per[son old in day]s will not hesitate to ask a ch[ild seven day]s old about his place in [life and] he will [live.] For many of the f[irst] will be [last and] many of the last will be first and they [will become one]."
Coptic version: Saying 4
Jesus said, "The man old in days will not hesitate to ask a small child seven days old about the place of life, and he will live. For many who are first will become last, and they will become one and the same."
4. Jesus said, "The person old in days won't hesitate to ask a little child seven days old about the place of life, and that person will live.
For many of the first will be last, and will become a single one."
