Unanswered Questions

Becoming a parent came with many unanswered questions. These questions aren't really about parenting but with what children think.

Some questions are:

Why children choose the box to play with over the toy that comes in it. (Of course the parent is more excited with playing with their awesome find!)

Why the Tupperware cabinet or the pots and pans cabinet will keep a kid entertained for hours on end.
(Must be because parents love the cleanup.)

Why it takes an army to get kids to take a bath and once they are in it takes an army to get them out. (This one truly baffles me)

And my most favorite of all (yes there should be sarcasm heard)...

Why your child feels the need to wake up at 5 am when for once you have to be up at a certain time.

Today was Rooster's surgery day (got postponed a couple weeks due to a sick doctor) and Chick 3 decided mommy should wake up at 5 am. My chicks think waking up in the wee hours of the morning means PLAY TIME!

Nope not to this Chick mommy. We laid in bed for an our until she FINALLY went back to sleep. Of course I had to be up in an hour. OF COURSE!

This will always be an a question that will forever go unanswered unless you have the amazing ability to read the mind of a 1 year old. Really if you can I will deem you the baby whisperer!

OMG, for the last month the first thing my little dude has done is run to the pots and pans cabinet. We finally got him his own little play kitchen and his own set of pots and pans yesterday. He's in heaven!

Amen! I ask those everyday. My 9 month old woke up at 6 and hasn't gone back to sleep since. Boo! We are about to do the bath thing, although thankfully, we only cry when it's time to get out.
