Why Mom?

 I know I am overkill with Claire asking why but I want to document it. It amazes me that kids that young can pick up/ and comprehend so much. Today as I was putting Claire down for her nap she saw the other kids running outside to play. She kept saying "ou-side! ou-side" I told her: "No Claire its time to take a nap. We can go outside when you get up from your nap." She persisted and I told her "No Claire its nap time." She then looked up at me with her doe eyes and said "Whhhyyyyy Mom?"  It really made me smile and laugh. How can she really be saying these things at only 17 months old. I guess that's what happens with the third baby. They pick up on everything their older siblings say and do.

My conversations with Claire have been going like this as of late. I can't believe that my 17 month old baby is already asking "why?" I mean seriously? She is 17 months old! I think I am in for some trouble.
