Why do kids only do this to mom? They never do it to dad. You never hear dad dad dad dad. Why is that?

And if dad says No, that's it. The kid gives up and moves on. If mom says No they take it as an invitation to keep asking until mom's head explodes and rolls down the street.

How come? Just one of the greater mysteries of life? What gives?

Do yours do this? (please tell me it's not just mine, lol)

  • I think because they spend more time with Mom and moms are usually going to give in at some point, dad will go back to his work or show..

  • yep all 3 of mine do this, lol i can only guess why and i think it is because they know that mom wants them to be happy, not that dads don't its just women are nuturers by nature

  • LOL. It's not just yours my dear. This is the story of my life. I am constantly telling my kids I heard them the 1st time. They don't have to keep calling my name.
