We had our suspicions, but can now confirm: we are dead in the middle of “Why?” country.

Every single time we say something, we get a “Why?” back from tinyMovieStar.

Every. Single. Time.

@maique Now you can deploy the ultimate dad trick: actually telling her why in far more detail than she ever wanted to know.

@maique There’s actually a book (for grownups) called “Start with ‘Why’”.

@gregmoore Whenever we reply, short of long version, we still get a “Why?” back. She’s has a very inquisitive mind, and also a funny streak. Together they are priceless 🥴

@maique Yes, it’s on Amazon, and probably most places. 📚🔊

@gregmoore Hahaha, that's exactly what my dad used to do. He studied quantum physics at uni so he would answer my "why"s aaaaaaall the way down to the subatomic particle level. And still I did not become a physicist 🤣 @maique

@jayeless 🤣 Sounds like your dad had the ultimate answers! My parents were both professors so my why phase was met with lots and lots of explanation as well. Be careful though @Maique. All those why’s now get me in trouble at work when I refuse to accept, “Because I said so,” as a real answer.

@gregmoore @maique +1 on this tactic. I like to open with “well it’s just basic physics” before launching into an explanation that takes five minutes.

@jayeless Hahahaha. I’ll probably get in trouble when she’s starts asking actual physics questions, though! I’ll have to ask you all about that then 🤣

@maique Our (now adult) children still remember the highly fantastical "answers" their father would give them. Kind of like the father in "Calvin and Hobbes," who would tell Calvin things like the world used to be in black and white.

@annahavron That is a GREAT idea! 🤣🤣 One I could use with her, thank you so much! 😅

@maique He also showed them that orange peels are combustible, but that's another story...

@annahavron I remember that one! That was a great strip.

@annahavron Those were some of my absolute favorite comics. Especially how accurate he was about dads giving those answers without looking up from what they’re doing.😂
