I recently read a little blurb about how many questions young children ask per day. Any guesses? Here is the shocking (or maybe not-so-shocking!) answer:
Does that make your head swim? When I first read it, I thought, "No way!" But then I did a little five minute count and realized it might be right after all. The study went on to say that four-year-old girls top the charts at almost 400 questions per day.
Know what? I have a four-year-old girl. And I think this study has credence.
Just now, as I am typing this, my sweet four-year-old girl came by and fired off these:
"Can I ride my bike?"
"Are these shoes on the right feet?"
"Can you imagine if I walked all the way to the Y?"
"Can you take me to ride my bike?" (asked of her brother)
Repeat above question
"When you're done mowing can you take me?" (asked of bro again)
That's seven. In about a one-minute time frame. She may exceed the average. I always knew she was above par.
The other day we were driving in the car and she was chatting away and asking questions about her birth (but nothing too stressful!). I told her she was born via C-section and briefly how that worked. She followed up with, "Did they use a sewing machine when they sewed you up, Mommy?"
And the last question I'll share with you today from this adorable white-haired over-achiever: "Mommy? Doesn't your mouth ever get tired of talking? Mine does!"
