three easy questions
My son Benjamin likes to besiege us with questions. I am constantly racking my brains to come up with intelligent answers. Often I just don't know. I'm concerned that this 3-year-old child of mine may be considerably brighter than his dear mother.
Today I had some staggering questions thrown at me during the course of the day:
1) "What's at the edge of the world?"
2) Who made the world?
3) How do babies start to grow?
Whew! I'm exhausted from thinking and explaining and straining my poor mind. What will it be like when this boy is 7? Or 10? Or, Lord help me, 13???? (Come to think of it, he probably will be barely speaking to me at 13, so that'll get me off the hook)
I'd better go to bed now. It all starts again around 6 am tomorrow. Goodnight!
