TwiceToddlers Ask a Lot of Questions

My twins, TwiceToddler "A" and TwiceToddler "B", ask lot of questions. Here are some of the questions they ask about:

  • "How do you spell...."
  • "How does he spell his name?"
  • "How does she spell her name?"

The above questions are asked by TwiceToddler "B" to Mommy and Daddy. Mainly to Mommy on a daily basis. She is just so curious about how a girl or boy spells their name and especially curious how objects are spelled. TwiceToddler"B", right now, things things are either "boy" or "girl". When she gets older, I will tell her that electronic components are put together with male and female parts. That is, there are male and female parts for any and all electronic objects. I used to work at a big name computer store in the 1990's and I sold the accessories. When I sold these accessories, there were things such as printer cable's and USB cable's which came in either 'male' or 'female' options. Hmm..what does this sound like? Looks like the electronic world is the same as the human world. Let's see, an outlet is a 'female' component and one end of a cord to plug into the wall, is the 'male' part. Interesting yes, logical...absolutely....

But I digress.....

Other questions my TwiceToddlers ask are:

  • What is it this color?
  • How old is he/she?
  • Is it 10 minutes, 100 minutes?
  • How do you sing that?
  • How much longer?
  • When will we get there?
  • Is it over yet?
  • What song it that?

And the questions go on and on and they certainly ask a lot of questions. This must be a sign of intelligence....right???
