I am so so so so so tired right now of all the questions from the boys.
Believe me, I totally get it. Kids ask about 14,000 questions by the time they are age 6. That is 14,000 opportunities to teach them rather than avoiding a question. We have two, at the same time. Age 3 and 4 was crazy with questions but age 5? About to drive me LOCO. They feed off each other with the questions.
It doesn't help that Jon and I are both engineers. We just can't bring ourselves to say we don't know an answer when we do know the answer. Why is the sky blue? Lesson in optics. How people got on earth? Hello, big bang theory and evolution. Why is that ambulance loud then quiet? Welcome to the doppler effect. Yes, my 5 year olds walk around explaining that sound is a wave.
But... we are also introverted engineers. And it finally happened. I finally cracked this weekend and told the boys the rest of dinner was a NO QUESTION DINNER. Because as much as I love the inquisitiveness and helping them understand the world, mama needs some freaking quiet once in a freaking while.
