My son is the king of curiosity. Before I've managed to open my eyelids each morning, he's hovering over me, standing tall as could be and ready to ask another long list of inquiries I have absolutely no answer for. Some of the ridiculous questions my toddler asks me before noon are pretty magical, but, well, others are just weird. Just this morning, as we rushed to get him dressed and out the door for school, he wondered why anyone has to wear pants if animals don't. I was stumped. I mean, the kid has a point.
My oldest is 10 years old and while she was just as curious and inquisitive as any other toddler at that age, my son is on another level. He watches a lot of Marvel superhero movies, and can often be found building immaculate structures with Legos, so I have no doubt his little brain is gushing with potential. I don't want to dismiss anything he asks, or make him feel as though he shouldn't ask me questions, because even if I don't have an answer then and there, I'm impressed with some of the thoughts swirling around and inside his head.
However, some days (like today), I'm just not prepared for the seemingly endless interrogation. Maybe I didn't sleep well, or I'm literally still asleep when he's ready to gab, but regardless, here are some of the ridiculous questions he's asked me before the day is even half over.
