1000's of Questions

It's a good thing (I think). I've heard a kid that asks a lot of questions has an active mind.

Well...we have some minds working overtime here. I didn't know there could be so many questions asked in a 24 hour period of time. There must be a Guinness Book of World Records record for most questions posed by a 6 year old in the shortest span of time.

Our middle dude is a walking "Ask Jeeves" advertisement (although I think Jeeves is out of a job now). I've gathered just a few of his latest questions he shot at me while I was relaxing in the sun trying to read a book. It went a little something like this...

Mom, so would dad be as tall as Jesus's feet?

Which way is Heaven?

Is it up or down?

If it's up then how high?

How come your mouth bleeds when you lose a tooth?

Why do we lose teeth?

When was 1972?

Will it ever be 1972 again?

Then after answering all these questions to the best of my ability without resorting to "Google" I pleaded, "Can I please just finish this chapter?"

He thought for a minute... and I thought I was free for just a couple of minutes. Then he quizzically looked at me and then asked..."How long is a chapter? Is it a page?"

Like I said, minds must be working overtime...I guess it's a good thing.
