From the Mouths of Babes

This week’s Sunday Scribbling prompt is “ask”. That’s it. Nothing more than that. Do you know what I think of when I see this? (and no, that’s not my question to lead into my answer to the prompt either) – I recall all the questions kids love to ask –

“Why is the sky blue?”

“How come grammy and grampy live so far away?”

“Why not?”

“Why?”

“Can I have a cookie?”

“Can I go out and play?”

“Are we there yet?”

“Awww…do I have to?”

I could go on and on but I think you get the picture. That’s one of the beauties of being a child. The questions little ones ask are so precious (sometimes a bit redundant too) but if they didn’t ask them, then you’d have to wonder “what are they thinking?” Wouldn’t you?

Smiles,

    Well said. I am sometimes told that I ask too many questions, but I just want to know! I now have a Granddaughter, so I am reminded of these constant simple questions and it makes me smile when my daughter says, “why does she have to keep repeating herself?”

    questions are great…in fact I love this quote…

    How your post reminds me of the questions kids do ask — and makes me wonder when we adults lose our curiosity — and why!

    I too asked my father many times about the sky…why wasn’t it red or green instead?
    And ‘do I have to?’….I still ask that now sometimes!
    I enjoyed your SS! Mine is up at:
