A Zillion

My boy likes to think about numbers.  Last night, he asked me "What comes after a zillion?".  I didn't have an answer, so we looked it up on google and found that zillion is not a real number, but a slang word for "a really big number".  The same page had a list of numbers multiplied by 1000.  Thousand, Million, Billion, etc.

Jude wanted to write them all down in his journal for future reference.

Adam is very much into numbers, too! His version of "a whole lot" is "nine trillion and nine."

Tell him to check with Bill Gates when he gets to the billions.
