I didn't think the "WHY" stage started this early... but man, Porter has been in a major "Why?" stage for the past month or so.

It goes a bit like this...

(driving in the car)
P: What doing mama?
Me: Driving
P: Why?
Me: So we can go home.
P: Why going home?
Me: Because that's where we need to go.
P: Why not? (that's new too... Why not??)

And sometimes I'll try to stump him and say "Why do you think?" And he'll answer back in this funny, adult like answer... "Hmm... maybe... (insert answer here)" For example:

P: Where daddy's bullet car?
Me: Its at work with daddy.
P: Why?
Me: Because daddy needed to go to work and he has to drive the car there.
P: Why?
Me: Why do you think?
P: Hmm... maybe... daddy makin' monies at work. I dotta go to work make monies.
Me: What are you going to buy with your monies?
P: Buy daddy shoes. Buy LeeAnn blue shoes (I guess he thinks you need blue shoes, LeeAnn?! HAHA!)

I need to write down some of our conversations. I swear this kid says some of the funniest things. I always think I'll remember them later but I never do.


  1. That is so cute. Blue shoes for LeeAnn. Ha ha :)

    TJ just asks a bazillion questions in general...not necessarily "Why?" questions. And he asks them OVER AND OVER.
    Or he does this...

    TJ : "Mommie, Mommie, Mommie,
    Me: "WHAT Titus?"
    TJ: " you....driving the car??"
    Me: " Yes I am driving the car"

    Two seconds later....

    TJ: "Mommie mommie mommie mommie"

    and it starts all over again!

    I think I would take the "Why?" questions over that any day!

  2. Oh blue shoes huh.. Hmm, Ill have to look for those. Thanks Porter!
