The why phase

09/12/2008


The munchkin's hit the why phase; she's a bit slow on the uptake (only two questions in one week), but the ones she does ask are deep.

Tonight's serving: mummy, why do we eat?

I have to admit I was somewhat stumped for an answer. Funnily enough, my first answer was not, because we love to, but rather, because we need fuel, much like a car. So we can jump, dance, learn, you name it.

Amazing.

I have vague memories of being a child and going through a protracted 'why' phase. Is good for a kid's development I think though darned hard work for the person expected to keep answering questions on life, the universe and everything...

So cute now. Wait till she learns to whine the word. You'll be begging her to stop!

The questions only become more existential with time. When the questions begin, so does the awe.

@Vic, Milo and Vikki: I think you've all made me consider buying an encyclopaedia. It's a challenge, I'm sure, but the questions will be worth it.
