Little Miss C asked her first "why?" question the other day and I have to admit that she's got me stumped: "Why don't sausage rolls have chocolate in them?" I was expecting a bit of a softer start on the questions, but it looks like I'm going to have my work cut out!
It's therefore quite appropriate timing to been tagged by the lovely DorkyMum with an opportunity to turn the tables and ask our children a few "why?" questions, so here goes:
Dearest Little Miss C…
Why is it that some mornings you decide to wake us up with an ear piercing scream, yet on others you're prepared to chat away for 30 minutes or so before demanding attention?
Why do you call the Queen the "Lady Queen"? And as a follow up, just who is the "Gentleman Queen" then?
Why do you insist on wearing socks in bed every night, even when it's nearly 28 degrees in your bedroom?
Why was it necessary to tell everyone in the National Trust restaurant that you'd done a poo in your nappy? Surely the loud voice wasn't really needed, especially as you'd chosen the moment when everyone had already gone quiet!
Why do you demand on taking any bits of food that you don't like off your plate and putting them on mine? Surely leaving them there is a valid option too?
Why do you "cuddle" Schleich toys when you go down for your afternoon nap? They're not exactly cuddly are they?
Why do you like picnic eggs so much? They're horrible, despite what your daddy tells you.
And finally, why do you insist on pulling those cute faces, especially when I'm trying to tell you off for something? You're too adorable for your own good you are!
I'm not going to tag anyone and force them to take part in this, but if you want to turn the tables on your child then please do and leave a link to your questions in the comments below.
