Hi!! Welcome to Bombshell. I popped in to check out your blog and I'm lovin' your work and your kids' antics! I have a 7 year old son and a 2 and a half year old daughter, so I've been through Phoenix's stage and I have it to come again very soon too. In fact, she's already there. I give answers too. But if there are too many, especially from the boy I start answering Why with "To make you ask more questions!" He laughs... but he doesn't go play in traffic!! :) :)

See you in the forum!! --Sy.
