Why? (tired musings of a 3 year old)

Last night, 3 year old L got out of bed and came into our bedroom.  She was so tired.  She opened the door and said, "Mom, I have to ak you a kestion."  (I giggled at her pronunciation since she is just so cute.)

I asked her what her question was. 

She climbed up into our bed and said, "Well ..."  (yawn)

"Why do kittens wiggle?"   "because they like to play"
"Why do butterflies fly?"     "because God made them to fly"

And she had one more question I can't remember today.  It was something about people because I remember saying "God made us that way."

I looked over at her when she didn't reply to my last answer, and she had fallen asleep.   I carried her back to bed, smiling as I thought about her last-ditch effort to stay awake by "aking  me a kestion". 

Trusting In Him,


  1. That is so sweet, I am going to cry (sigh and grin).

  2. They are so sweet at that age with their questions, aren't they? :)


I love to hear from you. Thanks for your comment!
