Questions (or How do children learn if they don’t go to school?)


Earlier this week, I read this about how mothers are asked 300 questions a day by their children and so I thought I’d keep a note of some of the questions the boys ask me. Sort of a companion to the wordles I did a while ago (Joe’s and Harry’s).

These were all from a couple of hours on Tuesday morning and are only the ones I managed to record, I missed plenty more.

Do the guineas need pet insurance?
What’s head lice?
Was that man French?
Was Marks and Spencer real people?
Why do scratches instantly pop up?
Can a teddy put up a fight?
Why does the smoke smell like coffee?
What’s that baby called? Does she like ducks?

Who is the voice for Daddy Pig? And Peppa? And George?
Why is it called the pound shop?

Why’s aliens always have those heads on?

You know knights kill aliens? (Harry: Maybe that’s what happened to the aliens!)
