Why is it?

  • Why is it that on the day's when I need it most, the twins won't take a nap together?

  • Why is it that when we already knew we needed some car repairs, we find out we need even more?

  • Why is it that I can't keep my kitchen island cleared off?

  • Why is it that I can spend two days reading a great book, but can't spend 15 minutes reading my scriptures?

  • Why is it that kids can be so dang cute, and so dang frustrating at the very same time?

  • Why is it that I can spend fifty bucks on a cool toy, but the kids prefer to play with my el cheapo plastic containers instead?

  • Why is it that I just can't get beyond the front room?

It's not a rant, really. I'm not even really discouraged. I'm taking another day off today. We went to the park. Jon's bringing dinner on his way home from work. I'm being totally LAZY. Which is probably the answer to most of those why's!!


Swinging, swinging.....

what's this stuff?

It is so funny that you wrote the why's, because I was just telling mysefl I couldn't get on the blog before I read my scriptures. Why do we have so many why's?

we understand about the 6th why question. our kids love to play with the box or the packaging more than the expensive toys a lot of times!

I think we all ask those "why" questions. Mine is the keeping the island clean why. Seriously it's like the central place for all junk. I'll clear it off and the next day it looks bad again!

Those kind of days are so discouraging. I don't blame you for taking a break - sometimes the mind needs it!

Your babies are SO CUTE! :)

We all need lazy days I think, just a break!

I don't have an island in my kitchen since it is way too small for it. But I have a table that would be the equivalent of your island. It would be nice if it were cleared but I just can't seem to keep it uncluttered. I really don't know why. I have a much bigger table in the living room that can be cluttured but I am able to clean it. I never can do it for my kitchen table or I should say I can but then in less than 24 hours it is back to how it was.

Why ask why? You'll only drive yourself crazy trying to answer that. I'd say you've been doing a great job tackling the projects on your list so I don't think "lazy" is the reason. I'm pretty sure it's partly because you're a great mom and you are more focused on your family's needs and wants than the unimportant stuff :)
