how many questions can a three-year-old ask in 24 hours?

just a tiny sample...

mommy, what color is your body?
why do i have a belly button?
why do god-mother's have magic wands?
what color panties does grant wear?
what's taylor's mommy's name?
what color is her hair?
why do princesses wear dresses?
what's your favorite color?
do you love snow white?
where does gavin live?
what's his brother's name?
(while pointing to walmart) is that mexico? (she said it, not me)

syd: where are we going mommy?
me: costco
syd: why?
me: to get groceries
syd: why?
me: so we can eat
syd: why?
me: so our tummies can be full and happy
syd: why?

you can clearly see where this is going...the girls camp song: "this is the song that never ends - it just goes on and on my friends...." comes to mind. i read somewhere that intense curiosity is a sign of intelligence...i'll try to remember that!

I am definitely in that boat too. I can never satisfy Bridgers curiosity...he just asks why and why again.

This is all too familiar! I hear "why" hundreds of times a day and Evan is always wanting to know everybody's name. Love the picture. Sydney is such a diva!
