    Default What would you like to ask your toddler?

    I've got a 3 1/2 yo, a nearly 2yo and a 4mo and often find myself asking rhetorical questions that I *think* I would like my older ones to be able to answer (but probably not really!!) but that I would never really ask like:

    HOW can you be so happy over producing something that would make a maggot gag? Why do I have to come and inspect it every time??

    How and why is it that you know to the second when the baby has gone to sleep and decide to scream right then?

    How can you know down to the last pea the differences between your dinner plates? Also, why is your brother/sisters always better?

    Where (oh please where) do you get your energy from (and may I have some!!)???

    How the hell do you manage to be so cute and is it a survival mechanism lol.

    What questions would you have for your kids??

    What the **** is with you wanting to be carried ALL THE TIME? You have legs! Use them! You have a pram! Use it!

    What is it about other people (especially people you know - relatives) that makes you so nervous and unhappy? Tell me and I can help to fix it! :-(

    What is so great about the wiggles?

    Why do you feel like you have to throw every piece of food at me that you don't want?you have a perfectly good tray.

    Why do you suddenly only want mummy at bath time? Daddy has always done bath and you were happy before.

    Why do you keep being mean to Ellie (Our dog)? She is happy for you to give her strokes and hugs and kisses. Why can't you just stop being so mean? I don't understand!

    Why will you not even entertain the thought of toilet training? You're 3.5 FFS!

    When will this angry/screaming stage end?

    When will you learn that sleep is a delicious reward that should be coveted?

    Why do you like everyone else more than me?

    Do you know that you are extra cute and factor that in when you decide just how devious and cheeky you are going to be for the day?

    What is so funny about the dog? I love the way you laugh hysterically at him, but for the life of me I can't see what's funny about him!

    Have you ever been anywhere without your pen!s? Every time I ask if you want a bath, you check it you can bring your pen!s with you. "Bath? Yes! Pen!s?" It's always there buddy!

    What do you and Grandad really get up to during the day?!
