"Why" Questions and other Brain Busters

You know your child is growing up when....
She asks you what the inside of her body looks like...
and after your attempt of an explanation of a few essential internal organs, she states, "you can turn back on the radio now." (We were in the car.)

She says "Why are they just fake?" about the first characters she see's through the submarine on the Finding Nemo ride at D-land.
She asks Dad if he's talking to one of his bro's on the phone. This picture below is such a classic. It is Stephen at home during a lunch break. And no, he is not talking to one of his bro's, it's some frustrated nurse at the hospital! If she only knew how awesome his listening skills were!

She asks why you won't let her ask questions that begin with why anymore?

She says that some day she will be a mommy too and have little kids that she will read stories to and that sometimes they will come and visit me (the then grandma).

She starts thinking of kids names that will work for her. Such as, (are you ready for this?): Cooper and Cindy. Sadly, the final winning names were Diego and Dora. In case you're wondering, no, we never watch those shows. Really.

Speaking of T.V., she happened to mention one additional thing that she will do as a mommy, which was a hint that she wished I would do. That would be letting the children watch cartoons. Reasonably, Sesame Street, which we do watch, doesn't count as a cartoon.
