Driving me crazy
Ok. So, I love my kids. I love my kids immensely. Like a whole, whole lot. Great big bunches I tell you.
But they have started this thing that is driving me crazy. And, I really need you to tell me that your kids do it too.
It's the crazy "what if" questions. What if this? What if that? Take for example our drive yesterday to clogging practice. We started talking about four-wheelers and the reasons why I won't let them ride one. Licious then asks, "But Mom, what if the world was covered with mattresses?" Nope. Still can't ride one. Boo asks, "What if everything in the entire world was made of marshmallows?" These what if questions were just on this subject but they go on all day.
What if the car next to us didn't have windows?
What if the swimming pool is empty when we get there?
What if my socks slip down and my feet start to hurt in my new sneakers?
What if a tiger escapes from the zoo and makes it to our house and tries to live in the barn?
What if they literally send me to the nut house with their constant questions about the what if's?
