Sorry for kind of OT and rookie question, but I've asked this in forums and
did not get a reply, I'll keep it brief:

Is there a specific reason why does child theme's functions.php load before
the parent's rather than AFTER ?
I know php doesn't care for the order, but isn't it common practice to
define functions before they are used ? Besides since the purpose of the
child is to extend upon parent wouldn't it make better sense ?
I also see this in other code examples as

Thank you in advance.
