Turning the Tables

Seattledad: "Lukas, do you want a strawberry?"

Lukas: "I do want a strawberry, daddy"

Seattledad: "Why?"

Lukas: "Because it's tasty!"

Seattledad: "Why?"

Lukas: "Cause I wike it"

Seattledad: "Why?"

Lukas: "It's (confused, mumbles something incoherent) good strawberry yogurt!"

Seattledad: "Good in strawberry yogurt?"

Lukas: "Yep, dey are. Uh, huh"

Seattledad: "Why?"

Lukas: (staring blankly at me) "Um.......I wike it"

Seattledad: "Why?"

Lukas: "..............We have to eat now. Um.....I tell you after lunch daddy!"

I think if I tried that with my boy I'd end up with a strawberry in each of my nostrils. He doesn't take frustration well.

Awesome! I must try this with my son.

Caution: as they get older, this game goes from blissful ignorance to eye-rolling.

Yeah... ah ha... give a little of their own medicine... I LIKE IT!

I tried this with my five year old - the first three "whys" worked, then he just stared at me blankly. Hmm... maybe that was a win after all...

This made me start to laugh half way through. Gotta try it with my son.

I've played this game with my kids at 3 and up through 6. At six I started getting the eye roll mentioned above along with a "Daaaad"

I don't think it's wrong to mess with them at this age. Might as well have our fun while we still can.

If I asked my son if he wanted a strawberry his response would be "chocolate milk".

Ha, nice one dad. I hope you enjoy your moment as I am sure that young son's revenge will be sweet.

Your kid is going to kick you if you keep that up :-)

Krystal said...

Um yeah, my oldest son would have ripped me a new one if I did this and the third boy would have just continued to repeat the why so we would just be talking in circles - but strawberries are good!!!!

OH, how I remember these kind of conversations! :-)

That's turning the tables, maybe he will remember that next time he is hitting you up with a zillion and a half "why's".

PS: I think they had some blurb in one of the Lost episodes where Hurley says he can't lose weight because of some genetic condition or something. So they kinda sorta explain it. :)
