The interrogation is constant and relentless and exhausting ...
What's his name?
What's dis song called?
Who sing dis song?
Where we go-ing?
When daddy be home?
What we ha-ving for dinner?
What's dat girl doooo-ing?
Where's mice baby doll?
Of course, it's also a little thrilling to see the world through her eyes and little mind. I love witnessing how much she learns everyday!
Well, it finally happened. Natalie took her constant questioning to a whole new level this evening.
MB: Honey, please don't spit. It's yucky. No spitting.
NHV: Mommy say no spitting?
MB: That's right, no spitting.
NHV: WHY no spitting, mommy?
MB: (shocked, amused) Because spitting isn't nice.
NHV: WHY spitting not nice, mommy?
Oh, boy, here we go ...
Natalie's new favorite word, "Why?"
My new most frequently used word - by default, "Because ... "
Won't be long, and I am sure to say, "Because I said so!" Groan!
