Many toddlers go through the "why" stage. For us we've hit the "why not" stage.
So, yesterday Miss B. and I were in the car and she was accompanied in the back seat by her life-sized Ernie doll. Ernie's got on his usual horizontal striped shirt, crazy hair, jeans and shoes.
Miss B. states: "I want take off Ernie's Shoes!"
Me: "You can't take off Ernie's shoes."
Miss B.: "Why not?"
Me: "They're sewn on!"
Miss B.: "I need scissors."
Yes, she wanted to cut off Ernie's shoes. Clearly, she's a determined problem solver.
