I know that having your kids ask a ton of questions is a great sign that their minds are working and growing. But holy moly does Ms.B come up with a lot of questions. I try to answer them as truthfully as I can, but it can be a challege. If you have any good answers to the below questions, I’m all ears. These are all actual questions Baylor has asked :
Why does red mean stop and green mean go?
Who decided that red means stop and green means go?
Why doesn’t your car have a trunk? (we have an SUV)
Why do trucks have a bed?
What is the National Guard?
What is the army? (follow up question when I tried to tie it into the army…)
Who are these brave men and women? What are their names?
Why doesn’t Curious George have a tail? Monkeys have tails. (that’s actually a good one. I’m curious too.)

Usually one or two of these lead to follow up questions and explanations. It is also the reason I generally can’t talk or think by 7pm most nights.
