That’s how many times Barrett uttered the word “Why?” in a single day. The days have brought varying amounts … 34. 38. 46. 29. But we’ve peaked at 58.
I know, I know. It’s a toddler thing, you say. Inquiring minds want to know, you say. And I get those pieces of it. I get that asking why does not make Barrett the next boy genius. I get that it doesn’t even necessarily mean he’s looking for an explanation. But seriously, captain, some days I just don’t have the power.
Mommy: Let’s go ride in the Jeep.
Mommy: So we can go to the grocery store.
Mommy: So we can get groceries. So we can eat.
Mommy: So we don’t waste away.
Mommy: Because that’s just not good for anyone. There are people in Japan who would love to go to the grocery store right now.
Oh sweet petunias. While Barrett’s curiosity is cute, it’s enough to drive a momma mad. And quite frankly, I am walking a thin line between validating his inquiries and just plain making up answers. So, if you ask me a question and I don’t respond, it’s not that I don’t care, it’s that the Answer Annex is closed. Why? Cuz.
Nice to meet you.
