Now, I love when he does this. It tells me that he's interested in learning about something. The questions do come at random times, mainly when they pop in his head.
The only time that I dread these questions is morning time. Quite frankly, my brain is just on autopilot. It's just waking up. And to have to answer questions that require me to think of an appropriate answer, especially when it's not a straightforward answer, like 2+2=4, is work.
I'll be honest, there are times that I tell him I can't answer that right now cause I'm not fully awake and not thinking right this morning. Sometimes we revisit the question, other times we don't.
Now, there are times where he asks a question and gets more than he bargained for. I give him a nice, long and explained answer to whatever he asked. When I answer him like that, he gets this exasperated look on his face and says "oh not again". I love it. All he wants is a simple answer, I sometimes can't do simple. He knows this.
Now all this being said, I've yet to get the big question (well big question for me), "what is sex?".
I'm slowly preparing myself for that conversation. It has to happen and soon.
What big questions are you asked early in the morning that requires more brain power than you have at that moment to answer?
