Reasoning

me & Sweet Pickle on the way to school this morning
Mama, why is the sun bigger than the earth? Oh, I know. It's to keep us warm. Mama, if the sun moved closer we would burn?

Yeah.

Like french fries. And if the moon moved closer we would freeze.

No baby, we wouldn't.

Yeah....

internal dialogue while he's talking:

(Is that true? Am I wrong? Would the moon make us cold?)
(How stupid am I for even thinking that?!)
(Of course that's not true!)
(Is it?)
(No that's not right. Moving away from the sun would make us freeze. It has nothing to do with the moon.)

...We would freeze like popsicles. That's what Mrs. Mouton said and she's bigger than you. She's a teacher. Is she bigger than you?

Yeah baby, she's older than me.

Well, she's older, so she's smarter.

Ha, funny girl! But now I'm wracking my brain, trying to figure out whether or not we actually WOULD get colder if the moon got closer. I dunno....
