I don't know why I find it so irritating today, but I am counting the minutes til one of my kids go home today! It has been raining on and off all day long. Every few minutes all day long he has said "It stopped raining. What does that mean?" I've answered it every way I can think of but yet he keeps asking..........

ask a question back "What do you think it means?" and repeat that back to him each time

Some days, I count the time left as "Just 3 and a half more hours". Some days, I count the time left as "Only 217 minutes". ;-)

I have the same questioner.

He's four. And I finally figured out he wanted to go outside. Then we had a new conversation for the rest of the afternoon. Yes, it stopped raining. No, we can't go outside because there is a foot of water under the playset............
