Who Knew That the Pledge Would Turn into a Deep Discussion?

This is the funniest thing!  A bit of background - I promise this will all make sense in a bit!  I always reprimand the boys when they say the phrase, "Oh My God" trying to replace "God" with "Goodness" or "Gosh".

The other night while we were sitting at dinner, N recited the Pledge of Allegiance all by himself! We were so proud of him!
This morning on the way to school, one of the boys said, "Oh My God" again so I corrected him. 

N then says, "But mom, the word "God" is in the Pledge of Allegiance", and then proceeds to reiterate that portion of the pledge. 

Of course I tell him that it is OK to say "God" in that instance. 

So then N follows up with, "So then what is 'God'?"  OK...a bit heavy for 7:45 in the morning!

My first response - "Why don't you ask your teacher when you get to class?" 

N: But Mom, you know everything! 

How sweet...right???  I have my work cut out for me now!
