The WHY Stage…

My daughter is in the “WHY” stage.

Let me tell you how awesome this is!

I had no idea that EVERY SINGLE QUESTION, STATEMENT, or REQUEST could be answered with WHY?

I’m telling you it can.

Please don’t put the cats tail in your mouth.

Why?

It’s really not a great idea to leap from the kitchen chairs and onto new papers.

Why?

Does anyone want to go for ice cream?

Why?

Who’s child IS THIS???

So to combat the WHY’s I’ve come up with a system.

Talk until they are so tired of hearing your voice they’ve forgotten about the “Why”.

What are those?

Pylons.

Why?

Because they keep us safe, if we don’t have pylons on the side of the road we might drive down that huge hold that the excavator made… I bet you’re wondering what an excavator is, well, and excavator is a huge machine that digs dirt around so that the construction workers can build these roads!

 I know you want to know why we make all of these roads! It’s because they want to make it hard for Mommy to get to work on time every morning. In order to create all of these obstacles they put pylons and construction all over the city and the 401 so that mommy has to sit in traffic.

Do you know what road rage is?

You’ve seen that twitch that mommy get’s right?

Do you want me to teach you about proper merging? Are you still listening?

Why’s forgotten.

You’re welcome.

    As I saw your tweet on this post, B asked me (again) WHY was the sky getting darker. He has asked me this question every single day and I am to the point that I am going to make up responses to amuse myself.

    I feel you. But it’s so good that they ask questions! Inquiring minds….:)

    Dude. R&C jumped on the WHY bandwagon ridiculously late. But they have never asked JUST why. It’s Why + whatever the last line I said was. It’s maddening. I’m using your idea and I’m just not going to stop talking.
