But Why...

This is how most conversations are going lately in our house:

Me: Jordan, supper's ready. Time to come eat.
Jordan: Why it time to eat Momma?
Me: Because Momma has cooked a good supper and it's done and time to eat it.
Jordan: Why you cook a good supper Momma?
Me: Because I want you to eat healthy.
Jordan: But why you want me eat healthy?
Me: So you can grow big and strong like Daddy?
Jordan: But Why Momma?
Me: Oh, just because.
Jordan: But why just because.
Me: *Sigh*

Jordan: Momma, whatcha doin?
Me: Oh, I'm folding laundry.
Jordan: Why you folding Laundry Momma?
Me: So it doesn't get wrinkly.
Jordan: Why it don't get wrinkly?
Me: Because then we'd look funny walking around with wrinkly clothes.
Jordan: Why we look funny?
Me: Umm, I don't know hunny, why you keep asking me why?
Jordan: (Confused look)

Me: Jordan, time for bed.
Jordan: Momma, why it time for bed?
Me: Because it's getting late and you need your sleep.
Jordan: Why I need my sleep?
Me: Because if you don't get enough sleep, you'll be cranky in the morning.
Jordan: Why I be cranky in the morning?
Me: Well, honey it's because you take after your father in that.
Jordan: But why I take after my father?
Me: I don't know, maybe you should go ask him. *snickers*

Somebody, please help me!
