Why? Why? Why?

Welcome to the Why? Why? Why? meme, Clare from Emmy's mummy gave me a tag which is why I am writing this post.

The rules of this meme are:

1. Post your whys - as many or as few as you like
2. Link your post to Mummy Central
3. Tag 5 bloggers to keep this going
4. Feel free to leave your questions below if you aren't a blogger but demand some answers!

Every parent is familiar with the word Why, & if you are not a parent you will vaguely remember being a child & using the word Why every other sentence, if you can't remember I will give you some childhood examples to see if it jogs your memory, like you would of been able to climb the biggest tree without needing to call out the fire brigade at the 1st branch but then you would be told to get down because it is dangerous....but Why? you would say or you would be building a snowman in the coldest winter for your mum to shout you in to get a coat on....but Why?. Then  you asked why you had to have socks on your hands whilst building said snowman...well the answer is because the gloves had not been seen since you last put them on the snowman!.
My mum always came back with the same answer, because Y is not a z & z is not a why! it confused the hell out of me!.

So pay back is a b**ch

I now get;

Mum why has she got 1 more mini cookie than me?
Mum why has she got more cereal than me?
Why can't I hit my brother?
Why can't I go to the moon?
Why can't I have blackberry?

So I am now going to give my adult Whys?

Why does it always rain when I have just pegged out my washing?
Why does my daughter wake up as soon as I get comfortable in bed?
Why can't I live on a desert Island?
Why are you not made with an off button?
Why do you always stand on a plug with its nasty prongs sticking up?
Why does the cat feel the need to scratch the hell out of my sofa?
Why do you always throw your dummy in the only place I can't reach?
Why is painting so boring?
Why didn't I get bigger boobs?
Why do spiders exist?
Why do prices of things almost double once your child is 12?
Why have I got a bag full of odd socks?
Why does Ben & Jerry's ice cream come in tiny tubs?
Why is it now I am an adult I avoid going out if it could be icy when I spent most of my childhood hoping for ice so I could skid along the ice?   
Why does she poo when I have just put a clean nappy on?
Why do you look so angelic when you sleep?
Why do you make my heart sink when you are upset?
Why do you have to be so adorable when you are cheeky?

I am tagging the following bloggers to carry on the meme

Andrea from Life with Liv 
Lauren from real house wife of suffolk
Emma from Me the man and the baby
Danielle from Blog by Baby
Jen from My Mummies Pennies

  1. I share your bag of odd socks and what is it about age 12, they are not adults then but as you say to restaurants and attractions they suddenly assume that status! Great list of whys all round.
