Why has arrived in full force around here. In fact, if it weren't so new, and if I weren't so grateful that Ava can talk at all, it might even be a little annoying.
Now I don't mind answering genuine why questions. Ask me why the sky is blue. Fine. Ask me why we need to go to sleep. Fine.
But check these out:
Ava: I need to go pee.
Me: Ok. Let's go potty.
(Ava is obviously bored with the television.)
Me: Are you ready to turn the tv off?
Me: Ok. Let's go turn the tv off.
(after finishing a meal)
Ava: Come play with me.
Me: Just as soon as I finish cleaning up.
Me: Because Mommy has to make sure that the table is all clean for next time.
Me: Because we'll need the table to be clean so we can put new food on it at dinner.
Me: I'll be right back.
Ava: Where you going Mommy?
Me: To the bathroom.
Me: To go potty.
I could go on, but I think you get the idea.
Happy 4th of July everyone.
