God and school

Jason: How did God get made?
Me: How do you think God got made?
Jason: By oil and gas?
Me: Well most people think that God's always existed and nothing made God.
Jason: I think there are many Gods because they say "God is everywhere."

Sydney: Why are kindergarten and grades so important?
Me: Because...
Sydney: I know, it's because you have to learn to read and write and listen, and say the appropriate words.
Me: Right!

Old-fashioned times and triplets

Jason: In old-fashioned times, how did people wipe their face, or blow their nose, or wipe their tooshies? There were no paper towels, tissues, or tiolet paper, right?
Me: Well, they had napkins made of cloth that the used to wipe their face or blow their nose -- called handkechiefs -- and they just washed them after. I'm not sure what they used for toilet paper...
Jason: Well they must have used something!

Sydney: My three [stuffed] doggies are triplets -- there are three of them and they were born on the same day. Is there a club for triplet moms?
Me: The "twin club" is really for moms of twins and triplets. There are two moms in the club who have triplets.
Sydney: Did you wish we were triplets?
Me: No. I was very happy with twins. I wanted exactly you and Jason.

Superheros and questions

Jason: Why do superheros always save the day? They get the bad guys and never die, but ninjas sometimes die fighting. I know, it's because superheros are just pretend. If I were a kid whose dad was a ninja and he died, that would be really sad. In the morning I am going to tell Daddy not to join the ninja team, because I don't want him to die.

Sydney: I don't have any questions tonight. I used up all my questions at Hebrew school today.

Birth and marriage

Jason: If Sydney grew in your belly, and I grew in Daddy's belly, who would we each belong to?
Me: You would both belong to both of us.
Jason: [After a long pause] If I grew in Daddy's belly, would he get really sick because men aren't supposed to have babies?

Sydney: I have a comment -- I don't want to get married.
Me: Why?
Sydney: Because I want to go somewhere special instead.
Me: [starting to answer] Well...
Sydney: I want to marry Miles in my class. But Jacob and Seth always tell me not to play with him or sit next to him. But I don't listen.
Me: You can sit next to whoever you want to.
Sydney: I sat next to Miles two times. I like his clothes.
