But Why Mummy, Why?

Since Little Man has turned 3 he has been using the word ‘why’ more and more. It doesn’t matter what I say, he asks me why. Why don’t the horses have coats for the rain? Why does he need to hurry up? Why, why why! I love how inquisitive he is but sometimes I just don’t have the answers!! I wrote a little poem about it. Let me know if you know what I’m talking about!

Why Mummy Why

Why Mummy Why?


Why Mummy why, do I need shoes to wear?

Because my darling, if you don’t people will stare.


Why Mummy why, must I sit still?

Because my sweet, you haven’t stopped fidgiting & I’ve had my fill.


Why Mummy why, do I have to get dressed?

Because my love, I’m late and about to be stressed.


Why Mummy why, do I have to learn to share?

Because my cherub, it is only fair.


Why Mummy why, must I have a bath?

Because my angel, teaching you to wash is putting you on the right path.


Why Mummy why, can’t I stay up late?

Because my ducky, if you don’t I may become irate.


Why Mummy why, can’t I keep saying no?

Because to be honest my lamb, I bloody said so.

    I just kept telling myself that it was a sign of intelligence. Doesn’t make it any less exhausting though

    So true. And then you say, “Because I said so …!”

    Ha I love that last bit 😉 The whys used to drive me mad after a while, but I love how their little heads are so keen on absorbing and knowing everything…. just thank god for Google so you can check some of the answers 😉

      I know it is a pull between being glad they want to know everything and it driving you slightly mad! xx
