It’s all about balance

Bear has recently entered the dreaded “Why?” phase. Why this, why that. For example, the following type of exchange is not uncommon:

Me: Molly, will you please eat your egg?

Molly: Why?

Me: Because I don’t want you to get hungry later.

Molly: Why?

Me: Because I love you.

Molly: Why?

Me: Honestly, I’m not sure right now.

Lucky for us, though, she’s also entered the previously-unknown-to-me “baby” phase. This probably sounds bad, but it’s not. She has started calling littler things “baby whatever.” For example, she calls shredded cheese “baby cheese.” This morning I told her it was raining, but when we went outside she discovered it was really just sprinkling. So she told me that it was “baby rain.” Swoon.

    Sat night she started with whys but wads not persistent. She is just so fabulous.

    Hmmmm, I believe Grandma is smitten and I don’t blame her. What a doll.

    Grandma is indubitably biased, as well. But I love it!

    Tee hee! The whys! I found that I usually got to a point where I’d say that we’d have to ask a scientist, and then she’d move on. 😉

    Oh my gosh! That’s an excellent answer. I’m stealing it, if you don’t mind.

    My sister also uses “why do you want to know?” which seems to head off further questions. 🙂
