Aliyah has been asking a lot of why questions lately. This morning it was "mom, why are there windows?" I'm one of those annoying moms who replies with "why do YOU think there are windows?" She came up with all the reasons I would have given her. When I'm in a good mom frame of mind and allow myself to be present in those moments (instead of getting annoyed at the 300th why question in the span of 20 minutes), they breed precious memories.
