Lucas on rain

When the rainy weather hits, I used to like curling up inside with a cup of tea and a good book or movie. But it's quite different with Lucas. He LOVES being out in the rain, stomping and running through big puddles. The rainy weather also gives us a lot to talk about.

This morning at breakfast Lucas gave me some new information about rain.
Me: Lucas, did you hear the rain last night?
Lucas: Yes, I did. It was raining and raining and raining!
Lucas: (pointing at Maggie) Look Mommy, it's raining in Maggie's mouth.
Me: Hmmm, is it really? That's interesting.
Lucas: Why you say "that's interesting"? Why you say that, Mommy?

Then as we were walking down to the car, he could see that it was wet.
Lucas: Mommy, why is the car all wet?
Me: Because it rained last night.
Lucas: Why?
Me: Because the clouds were heavy and full of water so they had to let out some rain.
Lucas: Why?
- 10 seconds later -
Lucas: Mommy, why is the car all wet?
