My toddler has entered the "why" stage. It's been going on for a few months now and I'm running out of answers for him! I try to avoid the dreaded why by answering his question before he asks it. When he asks what I'm doing I say something along the lines of "I'm putting the wash in the dryer so we can have dry clothes." But it's always followed with "why?". Goodness! I didn't want to be one of those that always went with the phrase "because I said so" but I find myself starting to use it! Just a funny phase toddlers go through.
