NHV, like most two year olds, is one inquisitive little bugger.  The questions are about everything we do and eat and listen to and read and hear and see ... you get the idea, right?

The interrogation is constant and relentless and exhausting ...

What's his name?
What's dis song called?
Who sing dis song?
Where we go-ing?
When daddy be home?
What we ha-ving for dinner?
What's dat girl doooo-ing?
What's dat?
Where's mice baby doll? 

Of course, it's also a little thrilling to see the world through her eyes and little mind.  I love witnessing how much she learns everyday!

Well, it finally happened.  Natalie took her constant questioning to a whole new level this evening.

MB:  Honey, please don't spit.  It's yucky. No spitting.
NHV: Mommy say no spitting?
MB: That's right, no spitting.
NHV:  WHY no spitting, mommy?
MB: (shocked, amused)  Because spitting isn't nice.
NHV:  WHY spitting not nice, mommy?

Oh, boy, here we go ...
Natalie's new favorite word, "Why?"
My new most frequently used word - by default, "Because ... "

Won't be long, and I am sure to say, "Because I said so!"  Groan!
