I was in the car about 4 times with my boys today. Here are some of the more interesting questions that I got from them (that I can remember). Keep in mind that they were not in context of any conversation we were having. They were just random questions thrown out to me. My Big Guy especially talks a lot and asks most of the questions. It is exhausting. The Little Guy would rather suck his thumb and when he does ask a question it tends to be one that he already knows the answer to (i.e. "are you wearing a red shirt?").
Can I put a big [sic] right here for the list? Some may look like typos, however, I tried to phrase it as they did:
Why are some droids red?
When will the world start over?
Will I be alive in 1999?
What country was Jesus from?
Can I have a 3-day playdate?
Why do your lips look funny?
Do Ladies wear lipstick?
Are you a lady or a woman?
Can you catch up to that car and see what state the license plate is?
Are you speeding?
How fast is speeding?
Is there a real Diet Dr. Pepper?
Is there another word for shirt that has shirt in it?
What states have I been to?
What is the biggest thing?
Why are there so many banks?
Is plutanamous a real planet?
Do you know what I dreamed last night?
Why don't all cars have a tire on the back?
Why do I have to wear "sunscream" when there is no sun?
How long does it take to get to Australia?
I'm almost relieved when I can just say "I don't know." I'm just as glad to get a yes or no question as well. I offered up "blouse" and "top" for the other word for shirt and he got really frustrated with me. I still don't know what he was talking about. If our Lego friend was here, she would go home and do research on all of these questions and send a detailed report via email for me to go over with my children. Go here if you have lots of time on your hands and want to ponder various Lego storage options.
Other notes of today:
I took the Big Guy to the uniform store for school clothes today and he asked the 14 year old helping us if she was married. I don't think he was trying to pick her up. He then asked if she had any kids. When she replied "no" he told her she should and she should have 3 of them. "I come from a family of three and there are two boys, one 4 and the oldest is 6 1/2 - that is me. There is also a girl that is zero years old and her name is [Baby Girl]."
I actually said this to the Little Guy today:
"If you put your tongue in her mouth you will go to Time Out."
I would like to add that I just hate picking up Baby Girl and finding that she has so obviously been licked upside her head.
