Inquisitive minds ask . . .

Lots and lots of questions!
I have really seen the vocabulary of the 3 year old grow in leaps and bounds over the past few months, and each time the family went away over the holidays, I noticed new phrases he learned. Right now he is always asking questions, of course, but now, when you give him the answer he'll say, "And. . ." For example if he asks where mom is going and I tell him, "Mom is going to the store." he'll say, "And?" So normally I'll add something like, "And she's going to buy milk." Once again he'll say, "And?" He will continuously ask, "And?" until you have no idea what to say next! I guess he just wants to be 100% informed, but really, after his mom leaves the house, I really have no idea what she's going to do! So that's be interesting.
His newest thing that makes it so hard not laugh, happens when his mom leaves. She'll say bye and head for the garage door and he'll run after her yelling "NOOOO! DON'T DO IT MOM, DON'T DO IT!!" One time, after asking her if he could go to, and of course being told no, I heard him say, "Come on Mom! Why are you doing this to me?!" You can't help but laugh, and know that dramatics most definitely run in the family. :)
But back to the questions - Yesterday I picked him up from school with my car, and he doesn't really ride in my car much, so he's always asking, "What's that?" Yesterday we got on the subject of the air (A/C) and which button made it work, and I had to go through the entire area of the consul that controls the A/C and explain everything to him. Of course this was all while driving in the car, so that made it much more interesting. Think we got ourselves a future engineer? If not that a race car driver for sure!
