Where does little girl hair clips and hair bands go to? Is there a very special Bermuda triangle just for them? I swear I bought a whole packet of both just 5 weeks ago. I have 3 bands and 2 clips left in school rules green. And I can find no more in the shops.
How does a whole ballet bag with shoes, leotard, socks, overshoes and tutu get lost, ok more likely stolen with no trace left? And why does neither Lucy nor my mom think it is not important enough to tell me that this happened for 5 days / when we needed it for Saturday's practice. And no, I am not taking blame away from the Princess, she has punished herself enough, but she did tell (2) adults that was with her the Monday that did not care to tell me. Why then will the special satin ballet shoes that we bought for the exams and concert that I specifically took out of her bag in January and that I want her to use now be missing in our house. Yes, I am disorganized, but these were put somewhere where Lucy did a clean out. Then certainly she must know where they are?
Why do we now have potty training regression once again? The vicious circle of holding in and constipation is with us , again. Sigh. At least he went at school yesterday. Huge relief for all, but why? I am tired of the 2 steps forward , one step back thing.
Why are the kids so tired in the afternoon that they claim not to be able to do anything but the moment I do something ( like making dinner or such) they magically have enough energy to help , ahem, pest me?
Why is the only kid not interested in doing OT homework in the afternoons the only one that is suppose to be doing it? I have given up trying to do it alone with L so we now do a group effort, just a pity L is the one not actually interested. Thank goodness the school have asked to do it there too - so at least some of it gets done.
Why, on a night when you really have not time to get dinner done, are the kids extra irritated and all demand instant attention? Why then is the blue scissors/ little arb toy, Valentines button lost? And then you burn the food?
And the most important at the moment: Why oh why did I buy those Toy Story shirts on sale for the boys? It's the first time I am confronted with the refusal to undress and have a shirt actually washed. Will I be the worst mother of the year and let them sleep in a shirt they wore the whole day and how do I actually get them to remove it the next morning ? Because believe be brutal force is the only option. Why does shirts not come with an autowash on the body option? Or why do I not make them disappear! Nope, wrong answer.
So which questions are you asking today?
