Meaning of Life

We all know how two-year olds love their "Why?"s and the Energizer Bunny is no different.

So I can't say I was shocked last night after rushing to his bedside following a torturous scream of "MOOOOOOMMMAAA!" his first word to me was, "Why?"

Sighing, I asked, "Why what, kiddo?"

"Why WHY?" came the sad, desperate question.

And really, how does one answer such a question?


  1. I wouldn't even know what to say to that either.

  2. The Socratic method, i.e. answer a question with a question, is the only way to go:

    Why not?

  3. I'm so with you on this. I have a whole chapter in the book I'm writing called "The Existential Toddler." Here is an old post on my bloggy too on this same topic if you want to take a peek...

  4. ps truly loving your bloggy! you are an amazing and talented writer!!!!
