{I’m feeding Attie on the couch and suddenly my other boys are tearing through the house, undie clad only, right out the front door and onto the sidewalk.  Again, only undies and no adult.  Age 5, 3 and 2.  Big no-no.  After stopping mid feed with Attie, I pull them all in and sit them on the stairs to wait for their punishment.}

Tee, why did you go outside?

Because I wanted to do what Catchie was doing.

Catch, why did you go outside?

Because I wanted to do what Ollie was doing.

Ollie, (sigh), why did you go outside?

(long long pause and smiling)

I not go outside mommy, I on stairs with Keese Keese. 

Sometimes I wonder why I ever ask why.
