You know what they say about curiosity...

it killed the cat!

CJ is a very curious little boy. This is a good thing most of the time, I think. At least that's what I keep telling myself. He is forever asking, "What's that?" "What's that noise?" "Why?" And when I reply "Why not?" to that questions he'll repeat me, "Why not?" He stopped mid sentence at dinner last night to ask, "What's that noise?" because a firetruck was going by the street. He wasn't satisfied either until he saw it and knew exactly what it was.

This morning while waiting for what seemed like forever for Kaitlyn's bus he heard a helicopter. Now my dad inspects helicopters. CJ knows this about Grandpa. He had to know where that helicopter was coming from. He was looking all around. Although, not up. I told him CJ you have to look in the sky. So he looks up and spots it and says, "Grandpa give me one of those in my hand!" He thinks he can hold a helicopter in his hand! Then he wanted it in his pocket.

I'm thinking it's time we find helicopters that are not up in the sky because he seems to think they are small enough to carry. And really if he does try to hold a real helicopter in his hand, then curiosity might just actually kill a CJ.
