Kids ask the strangest questions

kids ask the strangest questions

I don’t know about your kids, but my kids ask the strangest questions and the most random times.

I have no earthly clue how parents can handle this stuff without Google and their ever present smart phones.

Imagine me standing here with my hands on my hips. I’m tapping one foot. I have the “mom face” going.  I’m saying
