A million questions to match a million answers

My kids never seem to run out of questions. Rather than document their endless queries, I decided to write down some of the answers I have given this week instead. Enjoy:

  • No, we cannot have any weapons at the table.
  • Just because I do not like the pink counters, does not mean that I do not like you. I love you.
  • Yes, you will need sunscreen.
  • Yes, you will also need to wear your swimsuit.
  • No, Daddy will have to kill that big spider. It's his job as a man.
  • If I must choose, I would rather eat sand than dead bugs.
  • No, we are not having M&Ms with our breakfast.
  • Yes, I will pay you to kill the spider since Daddy is such a wimp.
  • Yes, I did mail the letter.
  • No, sorry, there's nothing from George Bush today.
  • No, I don't know about poisonous frogs.
  • Yes, you can have a snack.
  • No, you cannot have candy for your snack.
  • Why, yes, I love your questions.
  • Just a minute, I'm going to the bathroom!
  • No, you cannot come in and ask me.
  • No! No! No!
  • I'm was not alive on D-Day.
  • Nope, neither was Grandpa or Opa.
  • No, the onions are not poisonous.
  • No, you are not allergic to onions.
  • Yes, you can just pick out the onions.
  • No, I don't know what time Daddy is coming home today.
  • Yes, I'll read you ONE MORE story, but that is it.
  • Yes, I love you, too.
  • No, there are no witches in your closet. See?
  • No, you cannot set your alarm for 4:30 a.m., sorry.

Oh my gosh. I can totally relate. That was a great post. One of these days I'll have to pay attention and write down ours too. They'll love reading that someday.

Don't you just totally love the constant questions, nagging, and on-going conversations we have with our children through the bathroom door?

These are the kinds of things I wish I'd written down and saved. I'm just glad you have all the answers!

I found your blog on Bob and Dianes site (they were in my ward in California) and I love it! I even linked you on mine . . . hope you don't mind. I have two young kids, and I can relate to a lot of stuff you write about. . . especially this post. My son is only 3 and talks constantly!!! Ahhh! Sometimes I feel like hiding in my closet! I like how you find the humor in things.

Bridget said...

Mahina said...

Kristi said...

No M&Ms with breakfast? COME ON!!!

McKay said...

mommy dont say that about us!!!

Holly said...

Oh the questions! With 3 children! Sometimes I just want to bang my head on the wall or the dashboard or whatever just with one rapid-fire-repetitive questioner.

Your answers were so funny and cover such a range from WWII, GWB, candy to monsters. Oh my!

Why didn't you have to say "no, I don't know why your mother is such a loser"...

Kelly said...

I am cracking up at these! We have lost of constant questions in our house, too. One of my all time favorites was (asked in all sincerity), "Does Jesus like Hello Kitty?"

You managed to come up with so many fabulous answers, I'm impressed. Usually after 10 or so questions, I turn into a loon.

Emily said...

I can't stop laughing. So funny Stie. My favorite is the weapons at the table. I swear I'm always telling my kids, NO, you can't hide in the dryer; Will, climb out of the oven; please don't run with knives . . .

Michelle said...

That sounds familier! I think I'll be laughing for a long time. Thanks for visiting my blog. btw, did you name your from Sound of Music? That is my most fav. movie ever and I named my blog from it.
