We have reached the age of "why".

This weekend seems to have to sparked the age of "why".
S-"Mama, I want a banana."
M-"Sorry, honey we don't have any."
M-"Because you ate them all the other day."
S-"Why Mama?"
M-"I don't know Soph."

S-"Mama, I wanna go bye bye."
M-"We aren't going bye bye, sorry."
M-Just because we aren't. We are staying home/"
M-"We have nowhere to go."
M-"Oh my God child, if you say "why" one more time!"

All day long, about everything. I swear in the last day and half I have heard "WHY?" at least a million times!!!! AHHH!!! How do I survive this? This child is actually going to drive me INSANE!
I thought the "Mama, look I eated a cheerio." "Mama, look Bret poo pooed in diaper." "Mama, look he's crying." "Mama, look at the bird." "Mama, look at the flower." "Mama, look I have a shirt." "Mama look Bret has pants." -I thought the play by play of EVERYTHING was annoying. Now I have that plus the "why" "why" "why" "why" "why" thing.

  • Start asking her "why do YOU think?" The answers you get will be amusing.

  • Isn't it great? Lol. I swore I'd never use the answer "because" or "because I said so" but that went out the window on the 10th "why?" in a row!

  • M-"Oh my God child, if you say "why" one more time!"

    I'm sorry, I know it's frustrating to you. But that made me laugh so hard. It's not funny when you're the one going through it, but when you've been there, it's hilarious.

    You'll get through it. It might take a lot of wine, but you'll get through. lol
