Recent little guy questions:

"Mom, do flies poop? What does it look like?"

Answer: "Yes, they do, honey, and it's kind of small. I've never wanted to know what it looks like, to tell you the truth..."

"What's a seizure?"

Answer: "Well, it's when somebody gets the shakes without meaning to, or they are frozen in place. Seizures take many forms..."

(If any of you are wondering where that question came from, it stemmed from a fellow parent's assessment of this flick.)

"What's a Suckophant?"

Answer: "Well, honey, one big blast of its vacuum flask means...

...bye-bye Beatles!"

Recent line of questioning from my husband after sharing with him how much our son loves Yellow Submarine:

"Does he know that John Lennon is dead?"

"Well, no. You know John and George are dead now."

"Should we tell him that Paul is dead?"

"Uhhhh, no...but he might as well be, huh?"

"University of Whales". LOL.

Yeah, the little guy is still trying to figure that one out...and I keep trying to explain it to him, for some reason.

Nevermind the fact that a group of whales is called a pod, not a school, but then the opportunity for Ringo's pun would be lost.

I miss those days when my daughter had all those questions.

Now she will be fourteen in two weeks and the brat thinks SHE has all the answers...sigh...

This age has its perks - like more freedom for the parents because the kid is so much more independent - but I really miss the younger ages.

Treasure every moment while it lasts!

Kids are a fabulous, miraculous gift.
