Why? Why? Why?


I’ve been tagged to do the Why? Meme by Kate from The Five F’s blog & Cathy from Wishful Wonderings.

The idea is to turn the tables on your children, who constantly ask why and have your own little rant about it! Bugs recently learnt to say Why and that is basically all he says all of the time! So here are my Whys? Are you listening children??

WHY do you always need a poo whenever I sit down to eat?

Why do you never have a lie in after a late night?

Why do you have to eat soil; surely it can’t taste nice? 

Why do you always have to throw your food on the floor?

Why does said food not get eaten from plate but you’ll happily eat it off said floor!? 

Why can I not go to the toilet in peace???

Why won’t you go in your pushchair without screaming the place down? 

Why are you always poorly when I have an important appointment?

This is not really at fault of the children but Why does it always start raining at school run time?

The rules are –

1. Post your whys – as few or as many as you like

2. Link up your post here, and it would be great if you could leave a comment too

3. Tag 5 bloggers to keep this going

4. If you’re not a blogger, leave your whys as a comment below. We’d love to read them

5. Show your support by reading a few others and commenting on them

Now I tag…

    I don’t think I’ve had a wee in peace for over 13 years now!

    I’m 100 per cent wondering the same thing about why kids don’t lie in after a late night.
    And as for having a wee in peace, I can’t even go in the shower without one of my boys running in and shouting “Boobies” at me (I know I should lock the door, but if I do my 3-year-old has a meltdown, banging on the door and crying).
    Thanks for linking up x

    My two refuse to have a lie in after a late night. Drives me mad! It’s just not fair is it! Love your questions and I can relate to the school run one too! A fun read :O)

    Why do you wake up from ur nap when its time for me to rest?
    Why do you poo in nappy but not in the potty?
    Why do u ask to go to pee as soon as I put u on highchair?

    I loved the toilet why! It always happens here!

    Why is there always a why from your innocent when you are dealing with something really stressful – like the water pipe exploding in the bathroom – and you have to muster every ounce of will power to answer, “Not now darling,” in a relatively calm tone.
