Mama OWL Blog: The Land of Why

The Land of Why

Tuesday, 18 September 2012

Sometimes it feels like I live in the land of why. Everything is why. Why why why. Especially for E who sometimes confuses why with what... Why his name? Why that noise? for example.

I was tagged by Anonomum to share my Whys. This was originally started by Mummy Central and it invites us to ask questions of our kids, in response to their constant WHYS.

So, Let Us Why...

Why do you get up so early on the weekends, but have to be dragged out of bed for school on weekdays?

Why do you always lose one shoe every single morning?

Why can't you open the washing machine to put the clothes inside, when it is clearly empty?

Why don't you ever lift the seat when you pee?

Why haven't I learned to check before I sit down?

Why do I have to repeat myself constantly?

Why do I have to repeat myself constantly?

Why do you always put the empty milk carton back in the fridge, but leave it out on the side when it's full?

Why will you eat MY dinner, but not your own when it is exactly the same thing?

Why do you always realise you've forgotten something just as I've shut & locked the front door?

Why can't you sleep in your own bed? ANY OF YOU?

Why do you think I'm a bin, and hand me your rubbish when you've finished with it?

Why do you always need the toilet when I'm in the shower/bath?

Why can't you just use the other sodding toilet?!

The Rules

  1. Post your whys – as few or as many as you like
  2. Link up your post with Mummy Central and post a comment if you can
  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.

  1. Very funny! I was tagged in the same meme....putting it together right now!! Love your list :)

  2. SOOOO TRUE! I think we have the same "whys", ahhh the joys eh?! lol. xx

  3. Thanks for tagging me, but I've already done this one! Some very funny whys here. Can relate to a lot of these, although I'm pleased to say we do all sleep in our own beds. Treating me like a bin and the milk on the side particularly struck a chord!

  4. All done :-) But I think everyone who I read has already been tagged, I need more readers, I don't have enough.. So I just tagged anyone who hasn't done it yet lol. x

  5. Love your why's - especially you having to share your bed ! We're not there yet but I know you love it really ! I need more readers too ! Thanks for the tag x
