Why, Mom? Why!

Questions from an afternoon with Olivia:

“How many nails were used to build our house?”

“Is daddy older than you?” (No, I am older than daddy.) “Why?”

“Where does the electricity come from?”

“How did birds start?”

    Wow, that is kind of heavy for one afternoon – sounds just like her Dad – the constant questions really wore me out. I probably gave him a lot of incorrect information – sure hope he does not remember that, or if so, does not hold it against me!

    4. How did birds start what? Be specific!
    I might have a bad habit of answering all of Colin’s questions. I especially like it when he asks, what is that terrible smell? I answer, “Your butt,” then laugh hysterically. Patrick says I should stop, I’m going to scar him for life, or worse, he will say that in kindergarten!

    Amazing the things she thinks about and comes up with. I love her interest in birding. Have a few for her to identify when she is here.
