Heavy questions from little people

I know it's not anything new for our kiddos, but I'm feeling particularly exhausted with M's deep questions on heavy topics this week. 

He's obsessed with the Gaza situation (we have family in Israel) and asking detailed questions about the structure of bomb shelters, the moral questions and strategic issues behind the moves of Hamas and the Israeli army, etc.  When he's not on that, he's popping out random questions about the decision process that led us to have kids, cultural norms in child discipline across history and cultures, theories on life after death, why only certain presidents have memorials in Washington or some other thing that one doesn't expect from a 6 yo.  He's getting better about discretion (not blurting out questions about hot topics at full volume in public places), but MAN!

Hugs.  Maybe the in-laws will stay less time this holiday season.
