Its been a while since I last posted, but since this time something has happened in our household. H has started saying ‘Why?’ , if I don’t respond within a few seconds he says ‘Tell me?’ Initially, thought this will be easy, as I enjoy boring people with facts, however its getting to the stage that a general knowledge book maybe required. Earlier today we had a conversation about the weather.

Me-Looks like its a nice day for the park                                                                                                H-Why?                                                                                                                                                                  Me-Because the sun is out.                                                                                                                   H-Why?                                                                                                                                                          Me- Or else it would be night?                                                                                                                H-Why?

I will stop now as you could probably tell I was starting to get out foxed by a 3 year old,  to make matters worse I was driving at the time so couldn’t even employ a distraction tactic and meanwhile look up the answer via google on my phone.

I was thinking how do I get around the why question or do I try and beat him with every fact and figure of the world?

    It’s cute when they start questioning the world. After a while, you’ll find yourself saying rather loudly: Because I said so! I didn’t like saying that much, as you sound like a crazed dictator trying to hide your lack of knowledge behind false superiority…So now I say, Let’s ask Mr IPad.
