why improv

There is a zone my 5 yr old gets into where everything is a why question. Why is that blue? Why are there police? Why is Trump president? Why is it garbage day? Why can’t I have more? Feels like sometimes she is compelled toward the interrogative regardless of the answer. The worst is when it can’t be answered easily, and time elapses while I formulate what to say and by the time I start that answer, she’s bored and moved on. It as an improvisational opportunity,  I win points less for accuracy and more for not letting silence transpire. We’re jamming trying to keep up the tempo. Sometimes it might means supplying answers that makes no sense.
