I thought that it was probably a passing phase and nothing more. Is my child the only one who does this???
LOL! You're not the only one! My son (he'll be four in March) asks us this all the time, or better yet,"Why do you love me?". The thing is, we tell him we love him a hundred times a day, what a wonderful boy he is, how important he is to us. So, I can't really figure it out either, except that the first few times he did it, he got a big reaction from us. You know, we were kind of stunned by the question so we made a big deal of it with lots of hugs and kisses.
So, I think he knows it's a way to get all
our attention on him for a little while. Plus I think "love", as a word, is a difficult concept to figure out when they are so young - so maybe they are just trying to understand exactly what it is. Honestly, I know my son feels loved so I'm not concerned in the least. Aren't three year olds the best?
