Did you Know? Did you? Well? DID YOU?!?

Did you know that a 10 year old boy can ask approximately 189 questions in a ten minute drive? Did you know that? Did you also know that a ten year old boy knows all of the levels for every song in guitar hero (and there's more than "ONE" Guitar Hero!) and is eager to share them with you on said ten minute drive? Did you also know that if you don't express enough interest in each song's level, he will repeat it so that you don't miss a Single. Detail? Did you know that the endless questions of a 4 year old don't "go away" when they grow older; they just get more complicated and open-ended???

I Did Not Know This.

Yet another significant detail that was left out of that Mommy 101 handbook I never got.

ENDLESS folks. ENDLESS QUESTIONS. And details. ENDLESS DETAILS.

I? Am wearily wishing for a glass of wine.

At some point the questions get very, very simple. They just ask for money.

ah, but when they ask questions at ten years old... "hmmm... I don't know, maybe you can find out the answer later today!!"

I can't count high enough to number the times a day my nine year old son says, "Mom? I have a question." Every sentence starts "Mom? I have a question."

And you don't even want to know what happens when you have not one but TWO little girls chattering away the day.

Has your son hit the stage yet where he can ask you any and every question in the world but if you were to ask him a question he thinks your lame no matter what the question.

Thankfully, no, Leah. I'm hoping it doesn't happen because I'm also his teacher!

Really? I was hoping they would slow down a little. Or at least the "repeat if I don't get an immediate response" part of it all. Sigh. I love some of the questions, but the need to show interest in the MOST tedious aspects of all of dinosauria is so old.

Enjoy the questions now, in a couple years they'll think you are stupid and incapable of understanding anything. :)

Is there a Mommy 101 book? I want one desperately. And I always thought things got easier when they started walking and talking and being more independent. It just gets harder and more difficult the older they get.

I was marveling the other day that the minute you have a child, you go from being the person with all the questions to the one with all of the answers. Me? Totally clueless.

Oh God. I doesn't get better? It gets worse? Oh, shit.
