E: Mommy, where do you think unicorns come from? Because I think they come from Texas!
Me: Really? How come?
E: Well, I've never seen any unicorns in New Orleans or in Georgia, so they must all be in Texas.
Me: Hmm. Maybe so.
E: Mommy, how come some caterpillars turn into butterflies and some turn into moths?
Me: Um, because some caterpillars are moth caterpillars and some are butterfly caterpillars?
E: Mommy, when you eat a chicken leg, is that bone part of its skeleton?
Me: Yes, dear. Bones are part of a skeleton.
E: Mommy, why are pigeons afraid of owls?
Me: Because owls like to eat pigeons.
E: But that owl at your work isn't real. Why do the pigeons still get scared of him?
Me: Because pigeons aren't real smart.
E: Mommy, can pigeons talk?
Me: Well, they can coo, so that's their way of talking to each other.
E: Mommy, do I sometimes ask a lot of questions?
Me: Yes dear, sometimes.
E: Mommy, is it okay if I stop asking questions now?
Me: Yes, sweetie. That's fine.
E: Good. Because my mouth needs a rest.
