What is Dad Doing?

What's mom doing? What's Dad doing? What is mom doing? What is dad doing? What is dad doing? What's mom doing? What's Dad doing? What is mom doing? What is dad doing? What is dad doing? What is mom doing? What is dad doing? What's mom doing? What's Dad doing?
This is the ever repeated question or pattern of questions, typically with no more than a 30 second break between the question. Regardless of answering or the need to do so. He often asks mom or dad what they are doing when he knows fully well what we're doing. He'll ask what dad is doing (while dad is at work) and I will reply he is working. 30 seconds later he'll ask again. I've sometimes even gone further into detail hoping that our little parrot inquisitor isn't merely stuck on repeat but perhaps attempting to glean further insight on what dad truly is doing. Alas mostly it's just him stuck on repeat.

I know I'll miss it when he moves out of that phase and doesn't ask it as if it's as common as taking a breath - but then again I won't. :) I always feel it is important to answer questions that he has, but a bit daunting when it's the same one that was asked about 30 seconds earlier when the answer is still exactly the same as when it was previously delivered.

He's a talker that is for sure. While at his dad's Christmas party, his coworkers were surprised at how much of a clear talker chatterbox that he was. He is a talker - with an attorney and two former debaters for parents, its in the genetics. We can't fault him for that. :)
