Over the last few months Nerys has learnt the word ‘why’ and my brain is struggling to cope with all the times I’m asked it in a day, and the answers I have to come up with .
The first time I realised she knew the word was when we left the house to pick Rhys up from school one day and she asked “moon?”. I said that she couldn’t see the moon at the moment. To which she replied, “why?”.
I have to admit I stumbled over my answer a bit, I really wasn’t expecting the question!
Now, I hear said question about 1000 times a day. On this occasion she was asking why she couldn’t wear these boots. When I told her it was because they were mine, this was the reaction I got.
