It seemed like just a few months ago that I was relishing in my son’s inquisitive nature- thinking his adorable questions about why birds live outside and why I go to work all the time and why his baby sister (who’s not such a baby anymore) cries so much. So cute!
Fast foward to now. Ahhh! The questions! They come in a constant stream and from all directions. The questions often hit me when I’m least expecting it and the other thing I didn’t expect- I can’t answer most of them! All that schooling and life experience and I can’t seem to figure out a good way to explain why I’m dripping sweat after a good workout.
I know this is a stage and I actually do love it. It’s entertaining as all-get-out so I thought I’d share these recent questions that came from Jagger in a 4 hour time span (and these are just the ones that are appropriate to share here!)
Me: (putting a sweatshirt on Jagger) “It’s cold out here!”
Me: “Jagger!! You’re peeing on the wall!!”
(well that’s what I’d like to know!)
Me: “Please don’t play with that truck in here- that’s an outside truck.”
Jagger: Why is that an outside truck?
Me: “Careful with that juice cup- the lid is not on super tight.”
Jagger: “Why is it not super tight?”
Me: “Please pick up your toys. The dogs might chew on them.”
Jagger: “Where is Mommy?”
DH: “Mommy’s at work”
DH: “Jagger- let’s get ready for dinner time.”
Jagger: “Why is it dinner time?”
And some of these questions thrown in as a bonus:
“Why do I have a cousin?”
“Why is there a spider in the toilet? (um- that would freak me out too!)
The best are the unexpected questions that have you asking the question: “Where on earth did he hear that?!” Got any of those? I’d love to hear them!
