It has begun. They say that everyone has a question. Some people are "Why?" people. They are always wanting to know why things are the way they are. Other people are "How?" people, always wanting to know how things work. Other people are "When?" people, always looking at their watch, and wanting to know when the next thing is that they have to do.
At least for now, Dylan has become a "What?" person. BIG TIME. It goes on all day. "What is "scrumptious"?" "What is "nervous"?"
"What is "exhausted"?" That's what mommy is, answering all these questions!
Yesterday, Jim said, "...Blah, Blah, Blah". That started this completely ridiculous conversation...
D: What is "Blah, Blah, Blah"?
J: Blah, Blah, Blah means whatever, whatever.
D: What is "whatever, whatever"?
J: Whatever, whatever means and so on and so forth.
D: What is "and so on and so forth"?
J: And so on, and so forth means yada, yada, yada.
D: What is "yada, yada, yada"?
I chimed in, "Yada, yada, yada means nonsense".
D: What is "nonsense"?
J: Nonsense is Blah, Blah, Blah!!
Then, Jim and I pulled the hair out of our head, and pondered what the next few months will be like with Question Boy.
He is already correcting me. My toddler is correcting me! When we went to the park, I said, "Let's go play on the slides". Dylan turned around to chastise me, "Mommy, you don't play on the slides, you go down the slides"! "But, I... well...oh, you knew what I meant!"
I'm going to need a dictionary, a lot of patience, and some very thick skin.
