at a child’s birth,

if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift,

that gift would be curiosity.”

    • Yay for curious kids! I bet (not knowing from own personal experience) that as Q.E. mentioned it can pose quite a challenge on the parent though 😉 Good for you for “rejoycing” in it! 😀

    • Ha ha ha 😀 You know what I almost posted a picture of a cat looking at a washingmashine titled “fatal attraction” – Too funny! 😀

      Yeah I can imagine those endless why’s can get a bit annoying: Can’t you just have fun with it though? You know, Calvin and Hobbes style, just make up outlandish explanations as you go along (i.e. the tv shows used to be black and white, because the world didn’t turn colour until the mid 70s)? 😉

      • Been there – done that.
        My kids grew up in an only partially real world. The explanations for things were rarely accurate, and often outrageous. I saw it as a way of making them question the voracity of everything – particularly if it didn’t sound right. I figured it would make them harder targets for the marketing men…
        As for cats and washing machines:

        • Hah: I love that philosophy and I am so going to steal it as a way to justify that making up funny explanations isn’t for my own entertainment, but rather a sign of great parenting on my part! 😉

          Love the story! Best line:

          The big concern, from what I understand from the crew that was on the scene, is that he didn’t want his mother to know about it.

          I wish I’d thought of that when I was younger! 😉
