why?

jamie posed this question on facebook “the curiosity of a three year old never ceases to amaze me. Does anyone know the answer to “why”?”

she got a ton of responses all of them funny.  ayden has about driven us and everyone else around crazy with the question “why?”.  once you explain and answer the question there is always another that follows and another and another until he gets to something you don’t know.  then… he smirks at you with delight as he says to you… “Daddy, you didn’t know”.  he loves to work you into a corner with his why? jabs and then  lay you out on the mat with his… “but you didn’t know” knockout punch. i know it is the mission of your children to drive you crazy, but it is wild to see him do it with such precision.  i love to watch him have a conversation with someone else and pick them apart until he gets them to say that they don’t know…

another wild event this week was when he decided to sneak away and hide in the computer room.  i walked into the room and he had opened corel painter, started a new document, and drawn a picture.  he had drawn a tree, a house, and written his name all with the mouse and even figured out how to change the color of his drawing element on the “paper” as he called it.  he had several drawings open, he has only seen me open that software maybe twice.  it scares me to think about how smart he is now… and where he might be in just a few years.  he is going to be smarter than me before he is ten.  scary…
