Mrs. BigKat and I were having lunch together today. Our 4 year old, LilKat2, had already eaten lunch, so he was doing some coloring. I was trying to have a conversation with Mrs. BigKat, but was interrupted several times by questions from LilKat2.
This gave me a good idea.
I told Mrs. BigKat that she should get one of those little clicker counter things. She could use it to count the number of questions that LilKat2 asks.
'Mommy, are these the right socks?'...click
'Which crayon is light blue?'...click
'What's purple mean?'...click
'Can I have a snack?'...click
I thought it would be interesting to find out how many questions a 4 year old asks in a day. After I told my idea to Mrs. BigKat, I decided to give it a test run. In less than 2 minutes, he had gotten up to 10 questions. It was actually pretty funny. At that rate, I figure that he would end up with 5 (questions per minute) * 60 (minutes per hour) * 12 (hours awake each day) = 3600 questions per day! That's a lot of questions!
I wonder what the count would be if we counted DIFFERENT questions...because in those 3600, there's a LOT of duplicates...
