Questions Kids Ask

Between my curious 4- and 8-year olds, I got asked the following questions in the past month.

I found all of them fascinating.

1. Why are our front milk teeth (incisors) the first to fall out?
2. Why is "infinity minus infinity" not equal to zero?
3. Why don't you get a rainbow when you shine a flashlight on rain in the night?
4. How are Cheerios and donuts made (into tori)?
5. His, hers, ours, yours. Then why not "mines"?

PS: I also learned from my 4-year old that daddy long legs aren't really spiders and don't spin webs, and that sea turtles feed on jellyfish.
