The Why Phase

I guess one of the reasons why I have started blogging again is to get things out there and off my chest since most of the day I am talking to a three year old who understands me but chooses to ignore me half the time and a 9 month old who has NO idea what I am saying. For those of you who know me my three year old is quite a handful, a funny, intelligent one who I love but boy does she give me a run for my money...I have no idea where she got it from?! Right now we are in the "why" phase of life. People why did you not warn me about this?!

A typical conversation goes as follows:

Madison: Mum can I use your make up too?

Me: You can use some of the lip gloss but nothing else.

Madison: WHY?

Me: Because it is for big girls

Madison: Why is it for big girls?

Me: Because I said so

Madison: Why do you say so....

This is where I wish I had the patience and the personality to say something sweet like "Oh sweetie one day we will do make up together but right now isn't the time" but usually I shut down and pray she stops saying the why word and try to distract her with something else. That is until she says something completely ridiculous like "But Mum why are you answering my questions" which is when I walk away and want to cry!

  1. My nephew is getting into this phase and Mr. C and I had a horrible habit of answering with ridiculous or absurd answers just to confuse him. Poor dear, he's going to grow up with some interesting reasoning skills
