Questions to ask...

This is a set of questions I asked Kira when she was two years old. At the time, she insisted she was not tired and did not want to go to sleep. Being creative and wanting to distract her from the fact that she was in her bed, I started asking her some questions. Here are her answers.


color --- red

shirt --- purple (I don't remember any purple shirt that she has, but hey, what do I know....)

shoes --- the pink ones (they are tennis shoes)

book --- about the birds (not sure what the title was a dollar store book)

song --- twinkle little star

movie --- care bears

food --- snack food

drink --- juice

toy --- doors (she loves to open and close doors)

I think if we have time today I will ask her these same questions and post her answers here. Granny's funeral is today so I am not sure how our day is going to be.

Take time to talk with your child. You may be surprised what you learn just from having a conversation. In a few years, you will enjoy reviewing what your child had to say when she was too young to consider her words before saying them.

Sorry to hear about your loss and I hope the day went well. ... Yes, talking to your child can yield some interesting answers.

Really nice advice, to take time out and talk to you children. Both my children have Dyspraxia. My son is 5 and can not put a 3 word sentence together. I treasure every word he says. Dont take what they have to say for granted. Often kids say the funniest things too.
