Kids ask so many funny questions — especially at the age of 3

I think age 3 is one of the cutest ages ever. Sure, we cannot go into a store without a tantrum for a new toy, piece of candy, book or craft (yes, that was her you heard screaming at Target because I wouldn’t buy her another Frozen Toy). But the questions my daughter asks me make me belly laugh on a daily basis.

Side note: I actually didn’t know the answers to all of these funny questions, but when I did know the answers, I loved that her questions were a learning opportunity (for her and me both!) and the perfect chance to teach my daughter something new!

Funny Questions from my Three Year Old

Where does rain come from?

These are just a small sample of the funny questions my 3-year-old daughter has asked me! I love her curious mind and thirst for knowledge. I also must admit that I’ve had to Google a couple questions to find the answers so I could explain them to her, and I have been known to say “just because” on occasion. I literally never have any idea what is going to come out of  her mouth next, but I know it’s sure to make me smile!
