So lately BQ, like most normal almost 3 year olds I assume, is OBSESSED with asking “why.” Doesn’t matter if the question is even logical, it’s asked. Example as follows…
“Hey BQ, what do you want for breakfast,” I ask.
“Probably, a yogurt tube,” she responds followed by…”Why.”
“I don’t know, sweetie, that’s just what you picked,” I answer hoping to stop the thread.
“Cause I like it? Why,” she continues on.
I find myself then beginning to think things like, “Because of its fruity goodness, perhaps the creaminess is more than you can resist…and stop. Then I think of the answer to end all questions (or so I think)
“I don’t know, BQ. Why do you think you picked it.”
“Cause I like it. Yah. Why?”
And on and on and on. The hard thing is trying to find the balance between wanting to stuff 5 thousand pounds of cotton in my ears versus wanting to nurture and cultivate her thirst for knowledge. If only she would move onto another question. Maybe even a question that involved more than one word? Alas, I guess I am destined to be living in the land of “why.”
