warum mama?

18 Sep

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!

    I hope you ll manage it. I was more the “if you say it one more time I will lose it” mom. BUT, I have to tell you it doesn t end very soon – and that is the fun of it.

    First of all i’m really enjoying your blog so far, so keep the posts coming!
    At my son’s age almost 3,5 now, the funny thing is that sometimes after asking me , he also seeks 3rd party confirmation to some of my replies…

    and then all too suddenly, one day you will be firing the questions…although if PET taught us anything it was to LISTEN…:-)
    lovely post…
