Why? Why? Why?

This is an actual conversation that just happened between me and my very curious 2 year old daughter.

As I'm getting things out of the fridge to make a turkey sandwich for lunch:

Me: "I need the mayonnaise."

MK: "Why you need the mayonnaise?"

Me: "Because I want to put it on my sandwich."

MK: "Why you want to put it on your sandwich?"

Me: "Because I like the way it tastes."

MK: "Why do you like the way it tastes?"

Me: "I don't know. I just do."

MK: "Why you just do?"

Me: Ahhhh!!!

This is pretty much how all conversations I have with Mara Kate are going these days.

Man, this "why stage" is intense! Every answer creates a new question. I'm running out of steam fast. Anyone want to come visit and answer some of these questions for me for a little while?!

I'm glad it's almost nap time! :)

I can imagine I would get very tired of answering questions!

We have tickets to come visit ATL in late October so I'd be happy to come over and answer some why questions for a while!!!:)
