Questions Of Motherhood

Why will my kids eat the rice out of the sensory bucket but not the cooked, warm rice I serve for dinner?

Why do we NEED a "No playing the DS on the toilet rule"?

Why don't my kids hear me ask them 15 times to do something but come running from a mile away when I open a piece of candy?

Why do my kids beg for a bath ALL day and then sit there for 3 minutes and scream to get out?

Why do they always want to wear the ONE thing I haven't washed yet?

What is the appeal of wearing someone else's shoes that are 4 sizes too big besides making me look like a jackass at Walmart?

Why does my 2 year old ALWAYS have a chocolate mustache and beard even though she doesn't get a treat until after lunch? It's not like she can sneak to the gas station and pick up a candy bar.

Why does ONE dish in the sink attract 50?

Where the heck did all those sock matches go?

Why doesn't Sesame Street quit wasting my time and just play an hour of Elmo?

Why can my kids sort a billion blocks by color but not sort toys to put them away in the right spot?

Why do all my kids throw a fit over the green plate? How come no one throws a fit over the blue plate? And why does it even freaking matter?

Why do they eat french fries but not tater tots?

Has it EVER been okay to stand on the table? Why would it be okay today?

Why don't people like their kids to tattle? If someone's breaking the rules then I want to know. Follow the rules but don't tell me if someone else isn't following the rules? What sense does that make!?

I found myself nodding my head over and over as I read your post. At the end of the day it seems I always find myself having a giggle at the things I don't expect to say...like, "Please don't lick the bottom of your foot" or "Please don't lick the bottom of my foot".
