(Of course, the constant chatter and crazy questions is also one of the most exasperating aspects of being a parent, but I digress...)

Yesterday en route to school, Liam asked, "Mommie, why is the sun following us?"

This was one of those moments when I realized that no matter what answer I provided in return, it would indeed fail miserably at capturing the wonder and enchantment which filled his little mind.

Sometimes, a question is just perfect, all by itself.

  1. Mommie, why is the sun following us?
    A: Because it misses your shadow, when it's not here.

  2. To which Liam would undoubtedly respond, "Why?" ;-)
