Enquiring Minds No.4

Once again it's time for my regular feature, Enquiring Minds, a series which celebrates the wonderful workings of my children's minds. You can find all my 'Enquiring Minds' posts here.

Enquiring minds

Quite often I'm surprised by the questions that T and N ask, sometimes I wonder where they've even heard some of the words they're asking the meaning of. This week has been one of those weeks with questions that come out of nowhere...
  1. Is Usain Bolt the fastest man in the world?
  2. What is shingles?
  3. How did they make the first pick axe?
  4. Where do seeds come from?
  5. What's a cheque?
  6. What does anxiety mean?
  7. What is a limited company?
  8. What does patronising mean?
  9. What's a coma?
Number 4 led to a conversation along the lines of 'Which came first, the chicken or the egg?' - I explained to N that seeds come from the plant and her reply was 'But the plant had to grow from a seed so where did that seed come from?'. She makes a good point and I didn't really have an answer for her so if anyone out there knows the truth, please let us know too! The same goes for the chicken and the egg question, I just can't get my head round that one and would love an answer.

  1. I am so worried about the time Baby starts asking weird questions! Exhausting! Thanks so much for linking up to #TheList x

    1. It can be exhausting especially when they expect you to have all the answers but it can also be entertaining at times!

      Thanks for stopping by and hosting #TheList

  2. Great questions! Kids have such wonderful inquiring minds don't they :) Can't wait to hear what my little one will ask me in the future :) #thelist

    1. It's great until you don't have the answer, but then Google is your friend :)

      Thank you for stopping by!
