The Circle of Life

Driving to school this morning. Beautiful day, happy children, relaxed mom.

"Mom, were you ever pregnant?" asked my 8 year old son. "No, honey. Since you and your sister were adopted, I was never pregnant"

"When a woman is pregnant, it's the beginning of a new life cycle."

"Yes, Jake. It is."

"Just like a bug."

I love hearing what's going on in Jacob's head. Amazing! He is so smart.

I was once able to see Gary Larson's vision as he showed two ants sitting on a hill. They are staring up at the starlit sky, and one says to the other, "Kinda' makes you feel small, insignificant..."

I think it is wonderful that your child would be filled with such a grasp for abstraction.... Wild. I am 37, and still trying to get a grasp.
