Turns out it's not just me. Australian online retailer Littlewoods surveyed 1,000 moms of kids 2 to 10, and found that kids ask an average of 288 questions a day, peaking at mealtimes, according to News.com.au. Yep, that's about 23 questions an hour -- about a question every two and a half minutes. No wonder you can't form a coherent thought -- being your kids' low-tech Google is a full-time job.
If you've got a 4-year-old daughter, you're really in for it. That gender and age combo represents the one most likely to "but why?" you all day long, with a whopping average of 390 questions a day. Boys age 9 ask the fewest questions daily, a mere 144.
One more survey stat that may not surprise anyone: 82 percent of kids go to Mom before Dad with their question.
