43 thoughts on “Let Me Ask You A Question – 11/6/17

  1. I have to share this, even though it’s not mine – my younger brother once asked my mum (when he was very small) – ‘Mummy, why does my face go a funny shape when I have a poo?’
    If only I could remember her reply!

      1. lol. This question came up as I was trying to think back and remember the first question I ever recall asking. Come to find out I could only think back to yesterday!! lol

  2. Mine was probably why I couldn’t have a dog. My son’s was something like how he can get a little baby, which involved an age appropriate response, along with making sure he understood he was not allowed to go into the hospital and steal one. He was 3

  3. The first question I remember asking was “Is the whole world America?” because I had seen this flag everywhere we went & everyone made a big deal about it on tv. I was curious how far this “America” thing went, lol. I am not sure how old I was, maybe 2 or 3.

  4. I don’t know if it counts as a “question”, but I grew up as a blogger with Suze showing me how not to always follow the rules, so I might bend them again today!

    When I was a toddler, my favorite plush was a little yellow duck I carried around with me everywhere, and needed (obviously) to sleep. I only said words like “Maman” and “Papa” back then, and one day, my parents found me in the living room, visibly unhappy with an empty box of Pringler chips.

    My dad lay on the floor next to me and asked me what was going on. Now, I don’t remember this personally, but I was told many times how I would point at the cylindric box, with a lost look in my eyes, saying “Gnagnan? Gnagnan?” over and over and over… Until my dad checked out the box and found my duck stuck in it. My face lit up, and he gave me back the plush.

    For very scientific reasons, dad hid the duck again to see how I’d react, and I started again… “Gnagnan? Gnagnan??”

    So they figured Gnagnan was the duck’s name… And therefore, that would be the first time I asked something without just pointing and crying (technique that I still use from time to time… with much less success, though!)

    Voilà!

      1. I know! I don’t know why I liked that or where I even heard cuss words. I don’t remember my parents cussing. I agree. Kindergarten was too young to be into cussing.

  5. I had missed this question and just saw it today. My father told me that my first question, when I was about 3 was :” Is that a merry-go-round going on over there?” I don’t remember it but it went down in family history as my first question.
