I must say, I couldn't wait for my daughter to start communicating, and now that she is, it's such a relief. We have finally come to a point where she says mama, dada, whe yle (where's cyle)? milk, cup, eat, snack, up, uplease (up please), please, tayn-to (thank you), i do, mine, etc. I've gotta say... life has just become so much easier. No more crying, screaming, whining, temper tantrums from not being able to tell us what she wants. *phew*, glad that's gotten better. :)|
My son, on the otherhand is almost 3 and I don't think I have a minute of silence... he is definitely my little talker, and lately everything has been "why".
"why we going this way?"
"why do i have to eat lunch?"
"why are we going to the store?"
"why can't I play with my friends today?"
I now officially know answers to almost every why question there is... and if I don't, I have finally caved and used the infamous "Because I Said So!" I swore I would never say it... but I did. Since using that phrase, I have finally come up with a better phrase, "why do you think?" in hopes to get him to think about it and maybe remember some of the dozens of answers I have given him to the questions he asks over and over again. My only concern is that someday, I will ask him why, and he will throw that answer back my way. ;)
