Little QQ has been asking a lot of why questions. Sometimes she venture into asking where, how and who. I try to answer each of her questions reasonably; sometimes it makes me wonder if she understands what we explained to her. But seeing that she asks the why, where, how and who questions very appropriately, I think she might have understood.
On one occasion, while we were on our way to popo’s house, she asked her series of questions. When I was lost for words, I took the easy way out.
M : Because the sky is so high
And immediately her elder brother, HQ, added in:
HQ : Because the world is so big!
I found this cute, so I continued with the fun.
M : Because the moon is so round!
HQ : Because the sun is so bright!
M : Because the stars are so many!
HQ : Because the cars are so many!
M : Because the flowers are so pretty!
HQ : Because the playground is so wet! (from the overnight rain, I guess)
M : Because my little boy is so cute!
HQ : Because my mama is so fat!
Mama? So fat???
And he laughed his very contagious laugh, but it sounded somewhat sarcastic that morning.
I learnt long ago that kids never lie. So on that morning, my ego flew out of the car window. :-(
