Joy is my kid with all of the “why” questions. I kept thinking she would grow out of this, but I really don’t think she will. I think she’ll just learn to find the answers! Today she asked, “Mom, why do they call trees, trees?”
I just shook my head and gave my standard, “I don’t know,” answer.
Grace spoke up and said, “I know! It’s because they have leaves and stumps!” Well, it’s as good an answer as any I suppose.
Another question of Joy’s that had me rolling on the floor: “Mom, do we have chicken on our bones?” I was eating at the time and had a really hard time swallowing. I gave her an explanation of animals, humans, and meat to which she replied, “Oh. I always thought we had chicken on our bones.”
