Shopping in the grocery store I was barraged by questions. What is that? What is that? What is that? Oh! What is that? This is the favorite question of my four year old, it's his version of the famous WHY. He wants to know what EVERYTHING is. He may explode if somebody doesn't tell him. Some people may think that this would drive them crazy and it easily could. If he is awake he is wondering about things. Maybe it's the fact that this is the fifth time I've gone through this. Maybe I'm just ultra patient. Maybe it's because he is just too cute to be annoyed with, but whatever it is I love it. Every time he does it, it makes me smile. I like that my boy wants to know everything. I want to tell him as much as I can then send him out into the world to learn the rest. So next time somebody asks you "Why?" or "What is that?" don't sigh and say "Go ask ______". Just smile and answer and try to find something you haven't learned yet and ask the question yourself.
