Unanswerable questions my youngest daughter has recently asked me

  1. “Why are there so many places to go?”
  2. “Why do all the people have names?”
  3. “Why is Santa old all the time?”
  4. “Why are there squirrels?”

My attempts at responses to said questions:

  1. Because … there are a lot of people … and they have to be somewhere … so they make places?
  2. So we have something to call them?
  3. Because he’s been around for a long time? (Sylvia: But was he EVER not old?) Er … Because he’s magic?
  4. Because … evolution … Because they grew … THERE JUST ARE.
