Questions

Voltaire said,

“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers”

I wonder what Voltaire would think of Adam? If I had to make a conservative quess, I’d say that 90% of the words he utters come in the form of questions. I don’t think I’ve every encountered anyone that talks as much as he does (not even his Mom).

I remember one especially exasperating day, our conversation went something like this:

Me: Adam, please just stop talking.

Adam: Why?

Me: Because you’ve been talking nonstop for four hours.

Adam: What’s ‘four hours’ mean?

Me: It’s the length of time you’ve been talking.

Adam: Is it like a day?

Me: No, it’s only part of a day.

Adam: What’s ‘part of a day’ mean?

Me: One day has twenty-four hours, you’ve been talking nonstop for four hours, that’s one-sixth of a day.

Adam: What’s ‘one-sixth’ mean?

Me: Go ask your mother.

    “not even his mom”…lol. Too funny. Kids are so much fun, ha-ha. It’s hardly ever quiet in our house…I guess only when they are at school! Then they come home and need to let it all out after being quiet and good all day.

      Yeah…I don’t think Adam is quiet in school, either!
