Adventures in raising a geeky child

The Interrogator July 7, 2011

Filed under: Paige — scifimama @ 8:19 am

I swear my child is in training to do interrogations for the CIA. Paige feels the need to question every little thing. While I know she’s asking questions to learn, it sometimes drives me insane. There comes a point when I have to tell her to stop asking questions.

Paige asks things like can she have something to eat or drink those don’t bother me. (Good thing since I have to feed her!) But when she asks if she can have a cheese stick and I say yes, then she asks why. That bugs me. If I open a cabinet she wants to know what I’m getting. If I put on a pair of shoes she wants to know why I didn’t pick a different pair. There are times she makes me feel like I’m being questioned by the cops for doing something wrong. I don’t know if this is typical 5 year old behavior or if Paige is just extra nosy. Whatever it is, i hope it’s a phase that passes quickly.

    Chickie is very inquisitive (though she doesn’t ask “Why?” when I say yes, only when I say no!) I definitely have to tell her no more questions sometimes. I feel bad doing that, but sometimes I just need a break!!

      I’m so glad I’m not the only one! I was worried I was failing some Mommy test by having to tell her to stop asking so many questions.

    It starts even earlier than 5… Case in point: Robbie! ;o) And you are not alone, I can assure you. :o)
