TikTok mom @first_mate_kate‘s little girl is going through her “why” phase. The period can happen anytime in a child’s development. Kids ask “why” all the time because they want more information about how the world works. According to Ovia Health, providing genuine answers is a much better response than not answering at all, which will likely only result in the question being asked repeatedly.
The child asked an endless slew of questions:
Toddler: Where’s daddy going?
Mom: He’s just getting some diapers.
Toddler: Why’s he getting her some diapers?
Mom: Because Rosie needs them.
Toddler: Why does she need them?
Mom: Because she wears diapers.
Toddler: Why does she wear diapers?
Mom: Because she’s a baby.
Toddler: Why is she a baby?
Mom: Because she’s little.
Toddler: Why they little, mommy?
Mom: She’s only 5 months old.
Toddler: Why they 5 months old, mommy?
Mom: Because that’s when I had her.
Toddler: Why you had her?
Mom: Because we wanted another baby.
Toddler: Why you want another baby?
Mom: I don’t know, hahahaha. Just kidding.
The hilarious video racked up 1.3 million views on TikTok.
“Once I realized I don’t have to answer EVERY question, I found some peace,” someone wrote.
“I felt this in my bones,” another said.
“Now I am the one asking all the questions and my teens are the ones with the eye twitch,” a person commented.
