Why? Why? Why?……
This seems to be the favoured question that Oliver is using at the moment, He asks Why? to everything.
I am quite sure that he knows that is really starting to grate on me as he is saying more and more, he even walks away from me laughing after saying it. I can totally understand if he was just being curious and wanting to learn about new things and how they work but he answers with why to a lot of things like;
It’s dinner time…..Why?
Eat your breakfast…..Why?
Hold my hand……Why?
Pick up your toys…..Why?
It’s time for bed…..Why?
Play nicely with your big brother…..Why?
Come and have a wash…..Why?
This was one of the conversations we had the other day
Oliver: Mum, where are we going?
Me: I’m taking you to Liz’s house
Me: Because Mummy has to go to work and you have to go to Liz’s house whilst I am there
Me: Mummy works for an extra little bit of money
Me: Because adults have to work so they can have money in the bank
Me: Because I need to pay for all the clubs that you boys attend, holidays and our bills
Oliver: But Daddy works!
Me: Yes, but Mummy wants to work too!
Me: Because Oliver, Just Because!
Most of the conversations go like this, where after a while i just answer with, Just Because!
Do you have similar conversations with your little ones?
