Day 20: Why?

Conversation with my 2 year old after we passed a school bus while driving to daycare.

Charlie: School bus!

Me: Here comes another one!

Charlie: More school buses!

Me: Bye, school bus!

Charlie: Where’d it go? 

Me: It had to go pick up more kids for school.


Me: Because kids need to get a ride to school.


Me:Because the need to go to school to learn.

Charlie: Why?

Me: Because school helps kids learn new things.

Charlie: Why?

Me: I don’t know, Babe.

Charlie: Why?

Me: ( I give up) Why?

I love this stage that Charlie is in! So observant and curious. Everything is always “why?” Eventually, I am out of reasons, and I close out over conversation with the same word that kept the conversation going.

  1. Haha. The why’s you want them to ask because they’re exploring the world, but also want to stop at some point! Any time I would tell my now 3 year old eventually that I didn’t know, he would tell me, “That’s okay. I’ll ask Papi. He always knows.”
