Finally it's my turn to experience this stage of WH questions from my little boss!
Whenever I read or listen about how parents are irritated with all the WH questions from their toddlers... I will simply laugh at them and tell them to be patient or telling them it's not difficult to answer their never ending questions!
Now that I am experiencing it myself.... *sigh* .... I am getting impatient.... finding hard to explain certain things.... irritation started to set in.... had to even ask my son to stop all quetions for a while so that I can stop thinking, stop explaining and have 1 minute of peace!
Just like last night on our way home, our conversation went like this:
Reese: Mummy, what happens if we throw a bomb on the billboard?
Mummy: The bomb will explode and the billboard will be destroyed.
Reese: Mummy, what happens if we throw a bomb towards the highway?
Mummy: The highway will be damaged and cars and people on the highway will be destroyed and killed. We cannot do such a thing.
Reese: Mummy, what happens if we throw a bomb into the tunnel?
Mummy: Tunnel will be destroyed...people will die.
Reese: Mummy, what happens if we throw a bomb into the sky?
Reese: Mummy why will the bomb explode?
Reese: bla bla bla?
Mummy: bla bla bla....
And he repeated all the questions again and again.....driving me crazy!
This morning on our way to school... he started to ask the same questions again and this time... I told him this...
Reese: Mummy, what happens if we throw a bomb on the power line?
Mummy: *Pretended not to hear him*
Reese: MUMMY.... what happens if we throw a bomb on the power line?
Mummy: (gggrrr.... patient...patient... )Well, what do you think happens?
Reese: Well, the bomb will explode and then the power line will be damaged and there will be a blackout!
Mummy: (mmmm..... good answer... brimming with pride now...) Oh...that's right.
Reese: Mummy, what happens if we throw a bomb into a construction site?
Mummy: What do you think?
Reese: Ohhhh.... scaffolding will collapsed, people will die and buildings will be destroyed! Alot of destruction....
Mummy: (Wow.... his vocabulary and sentence construction is getting impressive!) Yes baby... you are right!
Suddenly.. out of the blue he asked me this:
Reese: Mummy, what is cross?
Reese: What about the other cross? *signing the x*
Mummy: Yes... cross is also that....
Mummy: So what are other words that mean angry?
Reese: Upset, frustrated....
Mummy: What is a billabong?
Reese: *Think for a while*... A small lake.
Mummy: Good job sweet heart.
