I usually find my daughter Iliana’s questions cute. She is eager to explore life and everything surrounding it. She looks at me with those big eyes and with the expression of a puppy and starts with the questions. She asks me about everything and anything. Why is Yianni (her brother) not here? Why is the sky blue? Why is it raining? Why does she need to nap?
I am trying (my best, really) to respond in an educative, fun and cheerful way. And I manage to do so, most of the times. However, there are these other times when I just can not handle any more warums. I don’t know how she manages to ask me 10 times the same thing in 10 seconds? She is like a firearm. Shooting me and bombardising me with the same question in a blink of an eye. She doesn’t seem to mind that I have to attend to my son, the house, the food, the pets. In her mind I am only there for her. And to be totally honest I love that about her. I love the fact that she sees in me the answer to all her questions. I know this is not going to last much longer. This is the beauty of being there, all the time, 24/7. I will try to be more the fun mom, then the ‘if you say it one more time I think I will lose it’ mom.
I will try!
