I Like the Questions Better When They Have a Corresponding Concrete Answer

Ethan: Mommy, what's in your cup?
Me: Diet Coke.
Ethan: And I have a Slushie.
Me: That's right.
Ethan: Why do you not have a Slushie?
Me: Because I wanted Diet Coke.
Ethan: Why did you want Diet Coke?
Me: Because I like it.
Ethan: Why did you like it instead of Slushies?
Me: That's enough. Hush up now and finish your lunch.
Ethan: I talk all the time, Mommy!
Me: I know you do. But it's time to eat now.
Ethan: Why do I talk all the time, Mommy?
Me: I do not know. Eat.
