Why do we do the things we do?

This morning I found a lovely mural on Libby's wall. We spent afternoon playtime cleaning it off. When I asked Libby why she colored on her wall, she actually shrugged her shoulders and said "I don't know." I gave her some advice that I hope she carries with her throughout her life: "If you don't know why you are doing something, you probably shouldn't be doing it." I don't know if she learned her lesson, but Mommy certainly learned hers: telling my child that we only color on paper isn't specific enough!
