After what seemed like hours of answering question after question (“why this,” “why that,” … ), every response being followed up with another question, I eventually told my 5-year-old boy: “I don’t know.” He proceeded, unfazed: Why don’t you know?

We’re having a big family dinner. My 4-year-old girl watches my mother’s cousin carefully as she is serving red wine. She seems bothered by it, and finally asks, loudly, why she’s not filling the entire glass.

To which she answers, still loudly: That’s not how my Mom does it at home!
