To say that Mr. 5-year old is curious would be an understatement. He asks questions about everything, and if he happens to hear you mention something in passing he will open a line of questioning that would put the Spanish Inquisition to shame. I used to look a lot of things up because I felt like it was important to give him accurate information, that and I was tired of feeling like I was not smarter than a preschooler. All the research became exhausting. I still try to answer his questions, but I more frequently say I'm not sure, ask your dad, or can I use a life line to phone a friend.

Here is a list of questions from the last couple of days and the answers I wish I could have given him.

5-year old Question - If you keep walking forever will you eventually run out of dirt?
Not Mother of the Year Answer - I don't know, but I'm sure if there is one patch of dirt left your brother will fall in it.

5-year old Question - If you crack open the earth will you find gold in the middle?
Not Mother of the Year Answer - Perhaps, but I think you might also find my car keys because I swear I have looked everywhere else.

5-year old Question - What is a tornado made of?
Not Mother of the Year Answer - Mobile homes and flying monkeys.

5-year old Question - Can a tornado rip an engine out of a car?
Not Mother of the Year Answer - It depends on how mad the monkeys are.

5-year old Question - If you get sucked up by a tornado will you just fly around and around?
Not Mother of the Year Answer - Enough with the tornadoes already Dorothy.

5-year old Question - If I spray water on the bathroom wall will all the paint come off?
Not Mother of the Year Answer - Actually I think that will cause a tornado.

5-year old Question - I saw a magician pull a penny out of a kid's ear, can anyone do that?
Not Mother of the Year Answer - Only emergency room doctors can pull pennys out of kids ears.

5-year old Question - If I stick my toe in this tiny hole in the patio furniture will Firemen have to come and get it out?
Not Mother of the Year Answer - WHAT?

5-year old Question - What kind of tool will they use to get my toe out?
Not Mother of the Year Answer - A bone saw - you can't get those chairs from Costco any more.
