How Many questions Do You Have?

In raising kids a parent reads all kinds of books and articles to help them learn what to expect as kids get older.

One book or article I read said that boys around age five ask around 500 questions a day, and girls of the same age ask around 750 questions a day.

Having one of each now at five years old i am dealing with all the questions....BUT my kids arent meeting those numbers.

My daughter asks about 300 questions a day... ok easy to deal with (most questions a five year old come up with are easy).

My son on the other hand is trying to break the 50,000 mark today... and every day this week. He wakes up at 6:30 and starts asking questions.... he falls asleep at 8 still asking questions.

My mother was over this evening and i know the question thing is bad when she tells him to stop, go sit down and be quiet. I didnt dare tell her..."yeah thats what I've been going through all week." Cause i know as soon as I do she will come back with some story about me at that age.

The hardest question my son asked today was "Whats that little red part comming out of the dogs peepee?"

How many questions did you deal with today? I'm at 50,300 already.

P.S. I'm sitting hear typing this in between eating my chocolate covered strawberries
