Why is it that on the weekend (the only two nights that Hubby is “on call” for middle-of-the-night wake up calls) that we don’t hear a peep from my daughter for over twelve hours, but on my nights she always comes knocking on our door when I’m fast asleep?
Why is it so hard to get my daughter to be still for the 2 minutes it takes me to brush her teeth?
Why haven’t I learned yet that if I want my daughter to wear something specific that the last thing I should do is say, “I think you should wear this today”?
Why is my 4 year-old daughter is already so good at using our parenting strategies against us (“Ok Mommy, here’s the deal: I’ll put on my shoes if you go get my fairy wand from upstairs”)?
Why is it that if I tell my daughter she can’t watch a particular movie or play a particular game, that that becomes the only thing in the world she wants to do?
Why does my daughter not seem to be able to hear me when I’m directly asking her to do something, but when Hubby and I are trying to slyly discuss something while she’s distracted, she hears every word?
Why does my daughter insist on doing most things herself (like insisting on buckling herself into the car while I’m standing in the cold rain waiting for her to it) but the girl can’t seem to use the toilet without my company?
