Last night, when I was helping the girls get ready for bed, Kiki just looks at me, and out of the blue says "Sometimes I wonder why is there life? Why are there people? What if they never existed? What if there were never dinosaurs?" I thought for a moment and then said, "I don't know, maybe there would just be a bunch of planets floating around." Then she says "Maybe there wouldn't be any planets. Maybe just a bunch of rocks." Then she thought for a minute, wheels turning, and said "And the one person that knows is not even alive anymore. He's in Heaven." More silence and then, "Or I think that might be the one thing no one can answer."
Not bad for an almost eight year old girl. . .
