Why Oh Why!

H1 has started driving me crazy (nothing new!) by asking me "Why?" most of the time we have a conversation.

Me: "Phew! We are in the shade now."
Baby: "Why?"
Me: "Because, we are inside a building."
Baby: "Why?"
Me: "Because, this is the way to get home."
Baby: "Why?"
Me: "What do you mean 'why'?"
Baby: "Why are we going home?"
Me: "Because that's where we live!"
Baby: "Why?"
Me: "Because, that's where we live!!" (secretly thinking "For heaven's sake!!")
Baby: "Why?"
Me: "Because......"
Baby: "Why?"
Me: "Just because...."
Baby: "Why?"
Me : "That's why!"
Baby : "Why?"
Me : (Thinking "Grrrrrrrrrrrr" and deciding to remain silent.)
Baby : "Why Ammi? Why?"

Imagine having 2 or 3 conversations like this per day! Exhausting, I tell you!!


  1. I think this she has learnt from school, this is the best way of annoying the other. Soon she will realize that is the best way to annoy the adults and will use it as a secret weapen.

  2. just came across your blog. quite interesting :)

    that conversation is exactly the reason why i stop loving kids the moment they start talking. the eternal 'why why why'. no offense meant, i'm just not a kid person but i love your blog and observations.
