Daily Chatter

My 2.5yo followed me around the house one morning last week when I was busy tidying up the house. As he followed, we had our hour long chatter.

Do elephants have hair or fur? 
Do hippopotamuses have hair or fur?
Do leopards have hair or fur? 
... and it went on... 

Then the next set of questions....

Are elephants bigger than the door? 
Are elephants bigger than the clouds? 
Are elephants bigger than the lift? 
Are elephants bigger than the TV? 
Are elephants bigger than the school? 
Are elephants bigger than the garbage truck? 
.... and it went on..... 

He would look around the house for inspiration. It was so cute to watch him looking left and right for objects to compare with the elephant.

Then he moved on to... 
Are elephants bigger than the polar bears?
Are elephants bigger than the rhinoceros?
Are elephants bigger than the giraffe? 
Are elephants bigger than diplodocus? 
Are elephants bigger than the tyrannosaurus-rex? 
Are elephants bigger than the stegosaurus? 

and it went on.... and on..... 

..... anyway, you got the drift....  

I answered every question patiently and delightedly, throughout the hour. By the time I was done, I was more thirsty than tired. And certainly more amused with my baby than annoyed with his questions. My cute little peanut! 

Of course, without a shadow of doubt, his favourite topic now is Elephant and everything about elephants!
