What are nine-year-old boys SUPPOSED to be pondering, anyway?

A brief conversation I just had with my son:

Isaac: Why do they even consider zero a number, since it can't be split?

Me: Well, you have to have some way to denote the lack of value.

Isaac: That makes sense.

This came immediately on the heels of a discussion about Spongebob Squarepants.
