Why? Why? Why? I wanna know why....

1) I wanna know why Garrett and Landon refuse to eat what is on their plates sometimes YET they'll eat that very same thing they snubbed when they find it, old and petrified, in the dust pan 3 days later.

2) I wanna know why my kids refuse to try new foods UNLESS it's on my plate. Then it's every man for himself.

3) I wanna know why I can wait an hour or longer to see if Garrett and Landon will poop before I change their diapers. Of course they don't. But as soon as they're in a nice, fresh diaper, they let the flood gates open....

4) I wanna know why the one time I forget to put a bib on Landon, he spills grape juice on his shirt. If he had a bib on, I'm convinced he would not have spilled the juice.

5) I wanna know why I was so stupid enough to give a toddler grape juice to drink.

6) I wanna know how I could rock Landon for 10 minutes and he's fast asleep, snoring even, YET when I put him down in his crib, he's wide awake and screaming as I try to sneak out of the room.

7) I wanna know why all of my kids hate drinking plain water with a passion YET they will drink it, and claim it's the best thing they've tasted since gummy snacks were invented, when the water is in a fancy-schmancy bottle.

8) I wanna know why Bella continously asks "watch me Mommy" over and over again when she wants to show me something cool that she's doing. She sees me staring at her watching her, yet she feels the need to keep saying "watch me Mommy" as if she's afraid I may blink and miss something.

9) I wanna know why my kids tell me they're not hungry YET when I grab a snack for myself not 5 minutes later, they're suddenly ravenous and in dior need of food.

10) Lastly, I wanna know why I think I could actually sit down for more than 5 minutes without being interrupted by "Mommy, I need something to drink", "Mommy, I want more ranch dressing", "Mommy, I need a band-aid", "Mommy, he's touching me", "Mommy, come here and rub my back", "Mommy, I need your help in the bathroom"....."Mommy, mommy, mommy"......

yes I know what you mean...they are not hungry but the moment they see you with a snack, they suddenly want exactly what you have! I'm trying to get my kids to say thank you when I get them drinks/cookies etc when they are watching tv. I tell them, if you were at a restaurant you would thank the waitress!

I've been reading your blog for awhile now and have been meaning to send a comment because I too have 2 sets of twins. I can relate well to a lot of your stories especially today's questions..please when you find out the answers, please be sure to share, LOL:)

LOL. Those are all questions I ask myself on a daily basis. Literally. Another one in my house is why will they be perfectly quiet, angel's even; but as soon as I'm on the phone, all pandemonium breaks loose in the living room??

Elizabeth said...

I wanna know why too! I don't even know how you manage to eat anything in your busy, hectic day with 2 sets of twins! You amaze me...grape juice spills and all! Have a great weekend!

Ha! So true and so cute. Just this morning I set my coffee down on the so cleverly named coffee table, and in a matter of .02 seconds it was spilled all over the carpet, ugh!!!! Why I know better. This is only the 3rd time this has happened. Those fast little boogers, lol.

Kim said...

Hee! I may post this on my fridge . . .

Joy said...

I'm so there...

Don't worry...we have years of these questions left.

The one that got me was the water. My children, both of them, are the same way. They will only drink water from a store bought container. This is one habit that I wish I had never started. I know buy the special water that is better on the teeth. Go figure...I failed again somewhere.

Hee, Hee, Hee!

My personal favorite was if only you had put the bib on then the grape juice wouldn't have spilled! That is me everyday of my life! I get so busy, I try to cut a corner and then it always comes back to haunt me!

Good stuff ;)

I love the poopy part. I wait too before giving my little one a bath and as soon we finish, there she goes. Ugh! It's always the other way around. Haayyy...

Ambulance Mommy said...

oh, that #1 WHY is just SOOO true in our house too!!!! WHY DO THEY DO THAT??? Oh wait, his father, who is 27 years old does that too...

Im surrounded by toddlers, and one is the one I married! :) Hahaha!

Have a good day!

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
