D (age 6) asked me today:

How did God get born, cos nobody was there?

He was the first one, but who was the second?

N grappled with much the same thoughts when he was 4, plus issues of evil and original sin: Why did God make learning disabilities? And mosquitoes?

It's amazing how early they pull out the key theological and existential questions.
