BUT WHY MOMMA?
So Hayden has hit the why stage and I understand he's learning but oh my goodness there is only so many answers I have for things before I say because I said so. The other day we went and saw performing bears and Hayden wanted to take one home and I said we couldn't, he said why..because Hayden they live here with they're handlers.. but why... because that's where they're comfortable but why momma I want a bear... he is adorable but I think we went on like 20 more questions and me trying to get clever before I ran out answers..did your little ones go through this stage?
Hayden is just trying to know the world better and exploring it every day - and you are his main guide. It's awesome age - you'll miss this "why, mom?' things in few years.
What I did was answer the first one or two why's and then I would turn it around on them. "Well honey, why do YOU think..." This worked. Sometimes. LOL
I do think that kids get into asking why just to keep the conversation going after a certain point. They don't care much about the answer, they just want to keep us engaged.
