I have a fun game that I like to play with the girls called "Why?"

It started when I would get a million "why" questions and didn't have the energy to answer all of them. No worries. I actually DO answer a lot of the "why" questions. But sometimes they would ask silly "why" questions on purpose just to get me to laugh. So, we turned it into a game. It's kind of like "I spy." You ask "why" questions based on what you see outside the windows of the van while driving.

Me: Why is the light red?
Reagan: Why is that guy on the bike not wearing a helmet?
Skylar: Why does that lady have green shoes?

You see...we don't answer them. We just keep asking. Eventually we all start giggling because the questions get silly. Especially today. Here's how the conversation went:

Me: Why does that car have its lights on?
Skylar: Why is there a banana on that sign? Ha! Ha! Ha! (funny kid)
Reagan: Why is that guy peeing in the trees?

I looked over on the side of the road, and indeed, a man was urinating in the trees. Thank you Mr. Pee-in in the trees Man. You have opened the door for me to have the all important "why we don't pee in public" conversation with my children. Somebody should give you a medal.
Or a cup.

Oy vey!
