"why" questions. Is 3.2 late to start asking/answering them?

Ds has only just this week starting asking why and why not and is beginning to be able to answer my why questions. His language has always been pretty advanced but this seems quite late.
BTW I realise my life will never be the same once "why" starts with a vengeance

my DS, nearly 3, is asking Why to everything. I just keep answering until he gets bored.

sorry I meant is it late for him to start asking and answering them?

I don't think so, my ds started a lot later than 3.2. If you're not concerned about his language in other ways, I wouldn't worry about this.

I have no idea, but my ds 3.5 doesn't ask many why questions, he'd rather know how you make things. I'm not bothered by this, he seems interested in things around him.

My DS2 started with "why" at the same age - we are deep in it now (he is 3.5) and looking set to be so for the foreseeable...
