My 3.5 year old has been asking a lot of 'God' questions lately. Tonight he pulled down the globe and wanted me to point out where God lived.
Anyone else getting lots of God questions at this age?
The twins go to an Episcopal preschool so they talk about God a lot. The questions I get recently are, "Mom, did God make the trees? Did he make that building over there?"
We've also talked about heaven because we've had a couple of deaths recently. They know about heaven but ask when those who have gone to heaven are coming back. =(
My twins are 5! My baby is 3!

We don't go to church, but DS has been asking where my dad is. I told him that God is a superhero and before he was born God needed help and asked my daddy to come and help him. He lives in a place called heaven which is above the clouds. Some day God might need some more help and ask someone else to go up there. My daddy and God can see you and loves you very much.
Telling him he was a superhero put it on DS's level and i don't think that comparison is too far off.
Griffin started the God questions at that age - and they keep coming.
Just the other day he asked "why doesn't God talk back to me when I'm praying? Can God talk?" and i said "I don't know".
He said "oh- i know... God SIGNS" It made me smile... he was thinking sign language, but of course i was thinking about God giving us signs - either way it's sweet
