Parental Ponderings

Being a parent has taught me that there are so many things I will never ever understand in this world. It has also taught me that sometimes there is absolutely no reason behind something.

Here are just a few of the things I don’t understand:

  • Why, when I bring you the exact thing you’re asking for, you yell ‘no’ and throw it on the floor?
  • Why does your cup have to be at the very edge of the table for the entire meal?
  • How do you lose 6 pairs of mittens in one month?
  • Why do you always poop in your diaper immediately after I’ve put a new one on you?
  • Why do you want to watch “The Incredibles” again?
  • Why did you put all of the toilet paper in the toilet bowl again? How much tp does it take to wipe your very small behind?
  • How did you get jam on your shins?
  • Why do you suddenly not like peanut butter on your toast?
  • Why can’t you put your own shoes on at home but you can do it at daycare every day?
  • Why do you have to watch me go to the bathroom? It’s not that interesting.
  • Why won’t you let me comb your hair?
  • Why do you always have to dump all of the sand outside the sandbox?
  • How does Dora get all of that stuff to fit in her backpack?

Children are puzzling.


About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home.

    It hurts my head sometimes trying to figure out little humans.

    While on this topic:

    – Why must you always bug your sibling?
    – Why do you think whining will get you what you want?
    – Why must you hover over me the very second I sit down, and watch my every move?
    – How can you not understand what ‘quiet’ means?
    – After all these years, how is it possibly that you still don’t understand what ‘no’ means?
    – Why must you always wipe your boogers on the walls or your shirt? Is there something wrong with the big box of kleenex right next to you?
    – Why, overnight, did you start to hate broccoli?
    – Where the heck do you toss your socks when you take them off?

    I’m sure there’s more – a lot more…..

  2. This list is exactly why I crave liquor at 8am most mornings 😉 And seriously, how DOES Dora fit all that crap in her bag?!

    Why does everything have to be “on?” My 15 month old walks around like a little tyrant, points and says “ON!” all day.
    Why can we play quietly until I’m on the phone?
    Why do we take a 20 minute nap when mommy needed a good long shower?….

    I seriously ask myself the same things daily. Along with:

    – Why do you sneak up and lick me?
    – How many times do I have to bump into and knock you over before you realize it’s not safe to just stand directly behind me while I’m doing something?
    – Where is that snack I just gave you?
    – What’s in your mouth??
    – Why’s there something always in your mouth??

    Exactly! If I may add: Why don’t you need anything from me until I get on the phone, then you want answers to life’s deepest questions?
