The mom things today are a sampling of such questions.
There are the intellectually challenging ones:
~ Why does the water coming out of the faucet feel cold on my fingers, but it doesn't feel cold in my mouth?
~ Why do you put money in a bank? Do they really have all that money in the building?
~ What is fog?
~ Is infinity a number?
~ Why isn't Pluto a planet anymore?
~ Why doesn't God let it snow in Georgia?
There are the ones that make you go "Awww..."
~ These shoes don't fit me, can we give them to someone who doesn't have any shoes?
~ Do we have any extra food in our pantry to share with people who are hungry?
~ Grandpop, where are your Mommy and Daddy? [In heaven]
Above all else, there are the funny ones:
~ Mommy, do you know what "Warp of War" means? (No, what does it mean?) It means "please" in Spanish. (I think you mean "Por favor"...)
~ At the hospital, I didn't see, how did that man get Abby out of Mommy's belly?
~ Why can't I wear just underwear to the restaurant?
~ If you aren't alive, you can't open presents. Right, Mommy?
~ How do you tell the difference between a bank robber and a kid robber? (Which, by the way, is apparently another term for kidnapper.)
~ Why did God make sharks? They're just *so* mean.
~ (Counting in the car) ...one hundred and eight, one hundred and nine...a million! [pause] Mommy, what comes after one hundred and nine?
~ If you get arrested on the side of the road while you have us kids in the car, what will they do with us? Take us with you? Or leave us on the side of the road? (Why would I be arrested on the side of the road?) For speeding.
~ (After emerging from bed following tuck-in, almost nightly) Mommy, why do people have...[pause as she looks around, frantically trying to think of a subject for her question]...ceilings/floors/hair?
~ Are we going to Bone-Jangles (aka Bojangles...chicken & biscuits)? (Bone-Jangles just doesn't sound tasty.)
~ (In reference to my eyeliner) Is that a cigarette? (Not quite.)
~ Why is the llama licking the toilet paper?
(To clarify, the llama is actually pitching a fit whilst shopping with Mama which caused the contents of the cart to fly all around. I believe the llama is yelling and the "toilet paper" (paper towels) are supposed to be a backdrop. [from Llama Llama Mad at Mama])
~(Holding up the middle finger) Daddy, is this a bad sign? [Seriously, that is terrible, but I still had to stifle the laughter while he answered that one. By the way, he did not learn that from us!]
That's all folks! I'll be back next week with some more-traditional Mom Things!
