Littleman: "I'm glad I was born."
Me: "Me too, Littleman."
Littleman: "I'm glad you were born, Mommy."
Me: "So am I!"
Littleman: "And I'm glad Daddy was born, and Sweetcheeks, and Babyman, and. . ."
(he continues in this way with various family members and friends, while I agree, for awhile before settling back into contemplation)
Littleman: (after a pause) "This might sound silly, but I'm glad God was born!" (mischievous grin)
Me: "That's not silly." (pause) "But I'm not sure if God was born, exactly. . .
Littleman: (interrupting enthusiastically) "Maybe he just CAME, like magic!"
Me: "Well yes, that's possible. . ."
Littleman: "Oh, or MAYBE God's an ALIEN!"
Me: (slight chuckle) "That's possible. . ."
Littleman: "Or maybe he was MADE, by an alien!"
Me: "Could be, we just don't know."
Littleman: "Yeah. I think, if we asked God 'Where do you come from', I think God would say, 'You know.'"
Me: "We already know?"
Littleman: "Yeah. . ."
Me: (a little impressed) "You just might be right about that one."
Littleman: (turns to Mr. Sweetcheeks) "Sweetcheeks, what do you think God would say if you asked him?"
Sweetcheeks: "I think he would say, 'I was born in Rock City!'"
