The why’s

So it’s not a suburban legend about all the “why?” questions from our almost four year old.

From Wednesday night (watching Kung Fu Panda 2, the part where Chen’s minions are melting down metal):

Henry: What are they doing, Daddy?

Frank: They are melting down all the metal in the village.

H: Why are they melting down all the metal in the village, Daddy?

F: Because they are making cannon balls.

H: Why are they making cannon balls, Daddy?

F: Because they are bad guys and they want to take over the village.

H: Why are they bad guys and they want to take over the village, Daddy?

F: Because they want to be in control.

H: Why do they want to be in control, Daddy?

F: Because they want to be able to do what they want to do.

(my favorite part):

H: Why do they want to do what they want to do, Daddy?

(I missed the answer – I was laughing and marveling at Frank’s patience).
