We have entered the "WHY?" stage with Avery. She can ask why until you want to bang your head into a wall. Emerson is still ok with whatever answer you give her and she moves on. Avery was like that too, till just this week.
Here is an example conversation between Avery and I as we were getting out of the shower:
Me, "I'm going to turn off the water now."
Me, "Because we are done with our shower."
Me, "because we are clean."
Me, "We are no longer dirty."
Me, "Cause we took a shower."
Me, "Cause we were dirty."
Me, "Because...(sigh) we had a 24 hr period of non showering."
I think I lost consciousness at this point cause I really do not remember what I said next.
We have though, found a way to make this a little more amusing for us. At dinner tonight we gave the girls the option of sitting at the table with us or eating at the little table cause Snow White was playing on TV. Avery choose to sit with us and Emerson sat at the little table.
Avery, "Why is Snow White screaming?"
Me, "Because she was scared?"
Julie, "Because the woodsman tried to kill her."
Me, "Snow White's mother told him to."
Julie, "CAUSE GIRLS ARE MEAN!"
Me, "Cause her step mother was jealous."
Julie, "Girls are mean."
Me, "I don't know. Why don't you ask your sister."
Avery, "Emerson, why are girls mean?"
Emerson, (we could not see her, but we could hear her.) "I don't know."
Emerson, "I DON'T know, AVERY." in a deadpan but slightly annoyed voice.
I was almost falling off my chair laughing. Apparently Emerson has been dealing with this too. Poor Emerson. I feel bad for her, but I will be doing that again!
