Why? Why? Why? Why?

Noelle wants to know. Biggrin

I have learned some things through the incessant, never-ending, never giving up, always and forever questions. For example, did you know that the grain that oats come from used to be considered a weed?

Random, sorry.

Wyatt is full of questions every day, so he never really out grew the stage. Cheyenne just listens to Wyatt all the time and just takes it all in.

Wyatt is very curious and wants to know how EVERYTHING works........like we are gathering eggs for our neighbors and he wants to know why they arent hatching into baby chicks.....so must look that one up sometime this week.....cause I dont know WHY!!!!!

For some reason, we don't have this issue here. Maybe they ask each other instead?

I think this is the first time I've ever said Noelle is similar to Wyatt. Biggrin She's extremely curious and her latest kick is trying to figure out where all of our food comes from. (hence the oats formerly being considered a weed) I've had to look up a few things, too, like cinnamon. I had no clue where cinnamon came from. Now I do! lol

I learned an insane amount of firetrucks this week.

What I hate is when they whys get to the point where you just can't answer anymore. Maddening!

Yes! My mom likes to tell a story about me when I was about 4. She patiently answered a multitude of questions during a 45 minute drive from Dallas to Ft. Worth. When we arrived at our destination, she was tired (understandably) and finally said, "I don't know, Ruth."

I said, "You don't know anything; Daddy knows everything."

What a brat I was!!

I LOVE YOU's picture
