Why is it that whether I put my kids to bed at 7:30 or at 10:00, they still wake up at the same time? I should be able to put my kids to bed at 10:00 on a Friday and have them sleep until at least noon on Saturday, right?
Wrong. Because kids know that we grow weaker with every hour of sleep that we lose. This weakness allows them to wear us down more quickly when they want to have fruit snacks for breakfast of watch Frozen for the 13th time in just over a week.
What is the right way to have the toilet paper on the holder? Over or under? Because OB and I disagree.
I do have an opinion on the proper orientation of the TP. But at this point, let’s be honest, I’m just glad that it’s on the holder at all and not on the side of the sink or back of the toilet. Or in a whole different room… or still at the store…
Why does my daughter burst into tears in the middle of dinner, seemingly for no reason?
Because she was eating her sandwich and the last bite that she took made it into a shape that she did not like. Nuff said.
Why do my kids only want to watch the same movie over and over, just one movie at a time?
It took me a while to figure this one out, but I finally did! They want to watch one movie at a time so that they can concentrate on learning every single word. Then when we put them to bed, they sit in their beds whispering scenes and songs from the current movie of choice to themselves while OB and I have our ears pressed to the monitors, silently laughing and thinking how cute and smart these girls are. Tonight PR did about 20 minutes worth of Frozen, word for word, until we had to tell her it was really time to settle down and go to sleep. Ahhhhhhhmazing!
Why does my daughter burst into tears in the middle of our ride to daycare, seemingly for no reason?
This is really a wildcard because it could be anything. Today it was because she suddenly noticed her shoes and they were gold and not pink.
