A’s New Word

A has a new word, “why.” I feel like we didn’t get to the why stage with C until much later. Much, much later. I’m still unclear whether A actually knows what she is saying or is just mimicking C, but every time I make a statement such as “You can’t strip down A, you’ll freeze,” she responds with “Why?”. I now have two children demanding an explanation for EVERY MOVE WE MAKE.

Mommy: “It’s breakfast time!”

C: “Why?”

A: “Huh [A’s version of yes], why?”

Mommy: “Because the clock says it is 7:00.”

A: “Why?”

C: “Yeah, why?”

I’m going to go insane.

    Oh good god. You’re living my worst nightmare. I’m so sorry.

    I’m hoping against hope that Baby Blue will not draw the “why” card until LG starts kindergarten.

  2. Luckily, Mr. P had a quite short phase of that. I hope this one goes quickly for you, too. 🙂

  3. My neice is going through that stage too. It’s mindbloggling. No explanation is good enough. oy vey.

    Welcome Lucy! It is an awful stage, it really is. C has been in it for a while, with no signs of leaving it. Sigh.
