Like most 5-year-olds, my daughter Rose is full of questions. Some of them are pretty easy to answer, while some I don’t have a clue how to answer. Some of them I can’t answer because I don’t understand or because I am laughing too hard. But no matter how many of her questions I answer, I know there is still a barrage waiting to come.
For the last couple of years, I have been jotting down my favorite questions to share. Here are just a few of them.
- When does the third week start? (It wasn’t clear what third week this was.)
- When did trees start to grow?
- When were doctors made?
The Potty Ones
- Why do boys poop standing up?
- Why do I always have to pee?
- Why do farts smell?
The Deep Ones
- Why is the earth round?
- How are people real?
- Why do some people lie?
I have made jokes about how she will be an investigator or a lawyer when she grows up just from the sheer persistence of her questions. But the reality is that, while her questions can be exhausting, I am always happy to answer them as best as I can for my smart, inquisitive little superstar.
What kinds of questions do your kids ask that make you laugh? I’d love to hear them!
