One of the hazards of raising kids is having to answer all the tough questions they pose. If you've been on the receiving end of any of the golden classics like 'Where do babies come from?' or 'Why is the sky blue?' you know what I mean.
Kids are always putting us parents on the spot, so it's especially refreshing to be asked a question with an easy answer.
My son won the No-Brainer award tonight when he asked me this as we were in the car on the way to pick up my daughter from an after school club:
"Mom, if there was actually, physically, a zombie apocalypse, would you allow me to have a weapon and to kill zombies?"
Gotta love those easy ones.
"Of course," I said. "Not only would I allow it, I'd very likely insist upon it."
It's nice that he's thinking ahead. Getting all those pesky permission issues out of the way before the actual, physical zombie apocalypse hits. I'd hate to have to worry about it then.
