kids are really eager to learn. I envy them. They don't stick to the knowledge they currently have. Instead they still ask questions just to learn about things. We should learn from them.

OMG...I remember all those questions all too well!! My girls were in that stage before we had a computer. I used to do my best to answer them but I will say that they often had me stumped for answers. I would tell them that I really didn't know but it was an interesting question and to write it down and look it up the next time we visited the library. And we really did look up many of their questions. I think I learned as much in raising them as they learned from me...maybe more.

He is learning so much and so very curious. It is a great age, but exhausting for the parent who must listen.

You can't beat kids and their little minds, with all the reality type shows on TV these days I can't believe someone hasn't started a new show like they had years ago with Art Linkletter talking to kids, I think it would be a big hit these days...
