No Answers

I've been a mother for a little over seven years, and in that time I've learned there are some questions that have no answers. Thought that I would share a few with you.

How can a child be in a bathtub or shower for twenty minutes and still have dirty ears?

Why is it that when mom is in the shower there are suddenly all kinds of questions that need answers now?

Why is there currently a Lego man in my aloe plant? ( He has been there for a week--I'm waiting to see how long it takes them to notice he is gone. )

How can my six year old eat a full meal and be hungry half an hour later?

What is it about grocery shopping that brings out the worst behaviour in my children?

Why can my children try my patience to the breaking point all day, but at bedtime they suddenly become irresistibly sweet?

When I am having a rough day as a parent why do I confide in the dog? (Ok, that question probably has more to do with my own weirdness rather than my children.)

Do you have any questions that don't have answers?
