Lately, I have found myself getting sucked into its never ending cycle until I hit boiling point and then cry out, in an exasperated tone...
"Oh Ava...I just don't KNOW!"
I've started to get savvy, and am getting somewhat better at nipping the string of "whys" in the bud... But yesterday? Well, yesterday I got victory.
For the first time, I stumped her!
The conversation went something like this... (I've translated it into English for the benefit of the masses... Sorry German speakers!)
Mama: Ava, hurry up with your breakfast now, because I need to put Heidi to bed (yes, Heidi has a nap at 9am... I know, she's only been up 2 hours, but this girl likes her sleep!)
Mama: Because she's tired
Mama: Because babies need more sleep
Mama: Because they run out of energy quicker
Mama: Because they're smaller
Mama: (seriously exasperated!) Because a grown-up wouldn't very well have fit in Mama's tummy, would they?!?
At this point, she rocks back on her chair, eyes wide, with a horrified look on her face and says emphatically...
"No they would not!"
