The way of the three year old

Ok, so here's what I'm thinking...

While we were gone on vacation, some kid pulled Avery aside and said, "Here's the deal. You are three years old now. It's time you start acting like it."

"It's time for you to say "Why?" to every single sentence that comes out of your mom's mouth. Even if it makes no sense. Even if she is so logical, it's scary. Just do it. Over and over and over. It's your duty as a three year old."

"Another thing, since your parents dumped you here while they went on vacation, try to drive your mom crazy when they get back."

"Smear yogurt all over your hair during lunch, poop and pee yourself as much as humanly possible, dump weeds into your kiddi pool after your mom's done cleaning it, and laugh at your mom as she tries to fasten your baby brother into your high chair. And he can't even sit up yet!"

"See? It works! She's lost her mind! Isn't it fun?"


  1. I can totally relate! We are in the same exact "Why?" boat! It makes me crazy! Hang in there!

  2. I swear it wasn't Anna or Libby...they know better, right?

  3. Ha ha ha ha....ha ha ha ha ha ha! I can't stop laughing! And I'm not laughing at you...just seeing more and more that my life is not so unique!!! Yay! ;o)

  4. oh that dreaded why question drives me so nuts it's not even funny, i get to the point i just say "because, that's why!" but i really hope all those other things didn't actually happen, poor you, you need another break!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments! ~Aimee
