We were trapped in the car when the questions started.
If somebody dies in their house, and the mailman brings them their mail but they’re dead, how does the mailman get them their mail?
The mailman would come to their door but they’d be dead.
So what would happen to the mail?
I think the mail would pile up and the mailman would eventually take it back to the post office.
Then new people would live the in house?
Yes, then new people would get their mail delivered to the house.
What about if all the mommies and daddies were dead and there were no more mommies or daddies. Who would make more mommies? Would robots make more mommies and daddies?
Um, Daddy? Want to take this one?
No1 asks deep, serious questions, and we’re committed to answering her as honestly as possible. But sometimes, her left-field questions just make us giggle and we stumble over our words, searching for what to say. These moments are my favorite with my four-year-old. Her innocence, her curiosity, her direct nature. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
What’s the strangest, funniest, or most awkward question your child has asked you?
