Questions asked by the 4 year old…

 (during a 5 minute time span on the way from running errands)

“Mommy, when will we be home?”

“Can I have a drink?”

“Mommy, how can I get all the spit off my tongue?” 

“I have to go potty.”

“When will we be home?”

“Why do tongues have to have spit on them?”

“Mommy, are we ever getting home?”

“Mommy, why are tongues mushy?”

“Are we almost to our house?”

Thankfully, the answer to that last question was YES.

  1. All those questions coming from another person's child are very funny. But I sometimes lose my sense of humor when they are coming from my own girls…

  2. Have definitely had car trips like this. I wholeheartedly agreed with Meredith's comment.

  3. This sounds SO familiar and I agree with meredith too – funny – but hard to take at the time, sometimes. Anyway, I got your link updated on my link list. I like the new place! 🙂

  4. That's too funny! Once while I was in the waiting room at the Dr's office, there was a little 4 year old girl and she kept asking me question after question about my baby. No matter how I answered, she responded with a question! Such a cute stage!

  5. Well, mom, her tongue was wet!!! 😉

  6. My, that is alot of questions! Kids crack me up!

  7. Oh, yes, I remember too well those chatty 4 year old talks. I have a toddler heading towards those years, and I think he might be even more chatty than his sister, who wore me out sometimes in the car!

    She's precious–a beautiful girl. I have a question, that you can answer here, or maybe in a post. As an adoptive mother, how do you feel when someone comments that a child looks just like you? I thought that when you posted pics of all your kids one day (some were reading, some were doing other things), and again in your Tour. One of your older daughters (I think she was on the bacon in the home tour), looks just like you! I never posted that, because I wondered if it's insensitive–if it somehow puts your birthed children in a different category from your adopted ones. . . .

  8. What a cutie! My seven-year-old still does that. I keep thinking he'll grow out of the 20 questions stage..

  9. When my daughters begin to question E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G and I cannot possibly answer them all, I begin giving completely abstract answers.
    Kid: "Why are frogs green?"
    Me: Marshmallow.
    Kid: "But WHY are they GREEN and not BLUE?"
    Me: Peanut Butter.
    Kid: Okay. I know I've asked too many questions.

  10. Oh my goodness, she is so beautiful!
