Both Sides Now

Children get you coming and going. Most jobs either wear you out physically, or they are difficult mentally. Two kids can cover both those bases. H is physically exhausting. He can get from the back yard to the front yard it mere seconds. In fact I think he teleports himself there since I never see him actually leaving the back yard, I just look up from weeding or watering and he's gone.
C wears me down with his constant questions that I either can't answer (why can't you see air?), or that I've answered a million times already (do bulls have udders?), or both (when will the sun die out?).

song: Both Sides Now • artist: Joni Mitchell

Interestingly enough, the latest National Geographic Kids issue says the sun has 100 billion years left to burn. Not sure if that is how long is left at the sun or how long is left for us to feel the heat here on earth ... so it could vary plus or minus a few billion years! :)

Thanks for the great information! That will certainly put my son's mind at ease. Or just lead to more questions! National Geographic Kids, huh? We may have to check that out.
