Max's new word

(actual quotes from Max over the weekend)

"Why is this your computer?"

"Why is this a band-aid?"

"Why is this Grandma's house?"

"Why is this a Spongebob shirt?"

"Why is this Spongebob?"

"Why is this a sweater?"

"Why is this a sandwich?"

"Why is this my milk?"

"Why can these be my shoes?"

"Why is this the clock?"

"Why is this another clock?"

"Why is this the TV?"

"Why is this also our car?"

"Why is it put gas in the car?"

"Why is this the floor?"

"Why is those are pens?"

"Why are these my blocks"

After listening to Max for the last few days, I have come up with a new response to his questions.

"I don't know honey, why don't you go ask Daddy?"

Why is Max so cute?

I remember a similar night. "Why does the dog woof, why is it dark out, why is it bedtime, why are you tired, mommy," etc for about 45 minutes from 10 pm until 10:45.

I'm not crazy yet, at least that I've noticed. Maybe others can tell?

I'd love to hear all your answers.

Jillene said...

LOVE it!! My youngest hasn't hit that stage yet but when she does--off to daddy she goes!!

Jessica G. said...

Oooooo...kristina took my response!

I get the "why" question around here, too. Usually, it gets asked just after I've told them to do something.

Would you believe, 6 kids and we've never really had a "why?"-er? Good thing, too.

I'll trade you for mine. She just asks "What" all the time. Mommy, what's a tide? Mommy, what's a flock? Mommy, what's the devil? Mommy, what's insurance? etc.

Uh-oh! If you keep saying you don't know, you'll end up with remarks similar to the ones my daughters gave their father when he thought this answer to be a good and diplomatic choice.

Daughter 1, slighty worried: "Daddy, you don't know very much."

Daughter 2, very intrigued: "Daddy, are you the family idiot?"

That is too funny! We aren't quite to the "why" stage...but we did just barely hit the "Mommy I need!" stage.

yah, good luck with that! My 1-year old always asks "What?" a thousand times. Finally I started asking her right back and it turns out she already knew the answer and just wanted a chance to say it.

petersons said...

Ew, I remember that annoying word...except my kids are older and now the answer to everything is "Why?"
I still love Max's "also" about everything. That is hilarious.

That Girl in Brazil said...

Yeah! I'm not the only one!

why do they have to learn the word WHY and proceed to use it all the time!!!!

Twisted Sister said...

Hey, thanks for stopping by! It's nice to meet you.

MamaHenClucks said...

Ah, WHY??? My husband would answer every question, only completely wrong and then my poor kids would spend months being totally confused. Poor things.

Mum-me said...

This made me laugh - and it reminded me of when my son was that age. He would ask questions like

"Why is the chair?"

Not "Why is the chair brown?" or "Why is the chair there?" just "WHY is the chair?"

How do you answer a question like that? (No, his father didn't know why either!)

Laura said...

and why does this get on your nerves? Why can't you play along for the 100 millionth time??!?!?!

Jo said...

And soon the question will be, Why is your mommy crazy Max?

Hey It's Di said...

Oh yeah. I remember that age. I just don't know why everything becomes a question? And why don't they ask their dad? Why me? Why? Why?....OK, I feel better now:)
