Why? Why? Why?

20 June 2012

If I had £1 for every time I hear the word 'Why' every day, I'd be sat on a private tropical island with a Pina Colada served by a buff butler!

Now's my chance to get me own back with all the 'whys' I'd like to turn round and ask them.

Thank you to Jennifer at Jennifer's Little World for tagging me in this funny meme!

Here are the rules:

1. Post your whys – as few or as many as you like.
2. Link up your post over at Mummy Central, and it would be great if you could leave a comment too.
3. Tag 5 bloggers to keep this going.
4. If you’re not a blogger, leave your whys as a comment below. I'd love to read them.
5. Show your support by reading a few others and commenting on them.

 Here goes...
  • Why do I bother tidying away all the toys when by 8am the next morning, the floor is covered with them again?
  • Why do I never get to drink my cup of coffee while its still hot?
  • Why do I have to listen to things like 'Mummy my bum's sparkling, you haven't wiped it properly!'?
  • Why do you have to shout at every man in town 'Mummy is that a bad man'? 

  • Why do you have to grow up so flipping fast?
  • Why aren't spa days compulsory and available on the NHS for all mums of young children?
  • Why can't my hair magically straighten itself so I don't have to spend half an hour faffing around with it?
  • Why do I stay up really late reading blogs/writing posts/tweeting when I need an early night?
  • Why can't I resist eating fattening food when I'm trying to lose weight?
  • Why am I sat here with a big pink plastic butterfly clip in my hair?
  • Why is the dirty clothes bin full as soon as I've emptied it?
  • Why do I want to fall asleep after just one glass of wine?

  • Why are you the most beautiful perfect creatures I've ever seen?

Oh dear I think I got a bit carried away there. I'd better pass the baton onto these lovely ladies...

  1. Thank you for taking part, a lovely list!

    1. Thanks Jennifer... I got a bit carried away with my list but it was fun thinking of my whys! xx

  2. Hello Mrs
    You've taken most of the words out of my mouth there - will complete this for my post next Monday - thank you for the inspiration xx

    1. Brilliant! Can't wait to read your 'whys', I'm sure they'll be very amusing! xx

  3. Yes soa days should be available on e NHS - we should start a campaign!

    1. Great idea. I don't think we'd have a problem getting signatures on a petition for compulsory spa days! X

  4. I found you via Love New Blogs love your list of why's! Made me smile :)

    1. Thank for visiting! I'm glad you enjoyed my 'why's' and they didn't sound like too much of a whinging session! xx

  5. Oh no you seem to have covered it all! Ha ha!! I can sooo relate to all of those... will get thinking, thanks for the tag xx

    1. You're welcome Emily, I can't wait to read your 'why's'! xx

  6. The coffee thing is one that really bothers me too. An average cup of coffee in my house gets reheated in the microwave 3 times before I finish it.
    For some reason my friends without babies find this absolutely disgusting.
    Thanks for linking up x

    1. Yes it drives me crazy too. That's why I love going to work and drinking a nice hot cup of coffee in peace! xx

  7. Yes please to the NHS spa days I am sure I could create an good business case for it being a net saving on stressed Mums! Wish I had thought of that one!
