My 9yo just asked me the following question:

If you could lay across a continent, which continents would make a suitable bed?

I asked her if this was a real question or something that she had thought of. I already knew the answer to that. She puzzles me. I often find myself wondering what kind of questions other parents have to answer.

Her answer? \"I would lay my head on Europe. My arms on Asia because I am a side sleeper. My body on Africa. And my feet barely reaching Antarctica, because I'm short.\"
