Why?

Most children by the age of four would be well into the 'why?' phase. Why is the sky blue? Why are you doing that? Why do we drive on the road and not on the footpath? Why? Why? Why?

Bright Eyes is four on Wednesday and he has never asked a 'why?' question in his life.

BUT.... he has answered one!!!!

Last night he said to me, "Shirt off please mum."

Without thinking I said, "Why?" and started to help him take it off.

20 seconds later he came back with the answer to the question: "Wet." It was true - the sleeve was a little bit damp.

Can you hear my heels clicking together in joy?
