But, What if Not?

Lately, I have sincerely understood the value in mothers having as much education as they can receive. For the first 4 to 5 years of life, we are the primary teacher for our children, laying a foundation for their understanding and knowledge. Every day I am asked questions by my son, ranging in topic from American History to Arithmetic to Astronomy. Often, I am required to comprehensively analyze the plot, characters, themes, symbols, and quotations of major animated movies. And while I was expecting the "why" questions, nothing but college could have prepared me for the abstract thinking required by the "But, what if not?" questions that followed.
