My son asks a lot of questions! I love that he is curious about the world, but he often asks things to which I have no answer.

“Why is nanny so short? Is it because God finished making her early?”

“Does Rusty only understand whistling? Is that why he keeps ignoring me? When will I be able to whistle?” (Rusty is our Golden Retriever)
