What then?

Xander has picked up this habit of wanting an hourly accounting of our plans. It usually starts like this:

Mommy: We're going to the library.

Xander: Then what?

Mommy: Then we're going to the grocery store.

Xander: Then what?

Mommy: Then we're going home.

Xander: Then what?

Mommy: Then we're having dinner.

Xander: Then what?

Mommy: Then we're going to bed.

Xander: Then what?

Mommy: (sigh) Then we're waking up.

Xander: Then what?

Mommy: Then you're going to school.

Xander: Then what?

Mommy: (pointing out the window of the van) Look! A truck!

If I'm lucky that distraction will take him off this pattern. If I'm not, well, we get to go through a week's worth of getting up/eating/school/eating/going to sleep, etc. You'd think he'd know by now.
