Morning questions

Ani's voice is the first I hear every morning.  Without exception.  I have noticed that her first words are often a question and though I'm sure I have missed some good ones, here are a few of the more recent...

How did the earth actually get to be here?

When you have a dog, do you get to choose a name AND whether it's going to be a boy or a girl?

When we say "the light in me sees the light in you", that's kind of like saying "i love you", isn't it?

 The waking thoughts of a five-year-old make me deeply deeply happy...

That precious little girl never stops thinking - even in her sleep!! I love it! And I love the thought of waking up smiling! Love you all.

Wow, I love your new header photo!!

I was just clicking over to comment on how wonderful this post is.

Orlando's today was, "What's a skyscraper?"

I told him it was another word for a very tall building.

He was quiet for a moment, and then he said, "Oh, because it is so tall it is like it is scraping the sky." Pause. "Is it scraping the sky?"

Which led to what might possibly actually scrape the sky (Mt. Everest?), which led to talking about the atmosphere... :)
