They say that a four year old child can ask approximately four hundred questions a day! wow - that's a lot, especially when you are the one person answering most of them day in day out! My son's curiosity to question the every day phenomena is astounding, challenging, but mostly enjoyable as I endeavor satisfy his need for information....
examples of some questions include;
- Why does it rain and how is wet?
- What makes the letter R, R?
- Why do the leaves turn brown?
- Why is the moon so far?
- how come you need so many (key fobs) mummy? (ha! I do tell him I sell them, but so cute that he thinks I make myself heaps!!)
On one particular afternoon, when we were chatting we were discussing birthdays (as my and my son have both celebrated ours recently). This is how the conversation went;
Mum are you older?
Yes, I am older than you
Why i cant i be old?
you will be one day
I want to be 29
So i can do knitting (crochet) too...
