Best. Question. Ever. (And More on Cat Legs. LEGS! Do You Hear Me? Legs!)

Quinn talks all the time. ALL. THE. TIME. And he's recently started asking "why" questions, which signals the coming of my own personal apocalypse. He was wordy enough with just the who, what, when, where, and how questions.

But today he outdid himself. Prepare yourself for the most excellent question ever uttered by a chatty youngster:

"Why do I talk so much?"

I wish I knew, Quinn. I wish I knew.


Thanks to Magpie for giving me a ROFL award for the post wherein I definitively prove that cats have four legs. Four legs, goddammit!

I was delighted by your responses to that post. Your comments were better than the post, I think. Thank you for each and every one of them. They brought me extreme joy.

On the down side, I'm afraid that I've peaked.

And it was on a post about cat arms.


Also thanks to ParentDish's Links We Love for their link to the same post.

See what I mean about peaking?


  1. LOL! Quinn is so cute! And you are so funny!

  2. Say it ain't so, that you've peaked. Perhaps a post about Octopus tentacles?

    Once I told my son "you are so curious" - my polite way of saying if you ask one more question my head will explode. His reply - "why am I so curious?"

  3. Out of the mouths of babes, right. My kids have already started correcting me. This is the beginning of the end.

    score on the Links We Love. I love Links We Love. I've been subscribing to ParentDish forever.

  4. With a house filled with growing boys I would say it will be a long time until you peak! I mean - you have Quinn, don't forget!

  5. Peaking on cat arms is like dying while having sex ;-)

  6. Does he talk about the cats' arms?

  7. I have a seven month old boy and I can't wait until he crawls, walks, and has something to say. However, I have a feeling that as soon as he's doing those things I will look back on the days when I could just sit him down with his toys and he would sit there silently, happily!

  8. I hear you on the talking. I thought HRH spoke more than any other person on the planet...until Gremlin really got a head of steam going. At least HRH used actual words. Gremlin just utters sounds, some words, some not.

    It just goes on and on and on until my brain explodes...

  9. doesn't every animal have 2 legs and 2 arms...
    except amphibians and insects-
    that's what biology books say!

    I'm kidding- I just made that up :)

  10. Cat. Legs. Definitely.

    Quinn is hilarious. Where'd he get that sense of humor??

  11. You ARE funny!

    We still make fun of our 8-year old - when he was 3, he couldn't stop asking questions all day and night. Once he stopped and looked at me and asked, "Why DO I ask so many questions?" and then answered himself: "I guess I'm just a questiony guy!" ;-) Enjoy your own questiony guy.


Thanks for commenting! May you be visited by unicorns and kittens.
