Why does it take an hour to prepare a meal, only 15 minutes to eat and another hour to clean the mess?

Why is the toilet such an attraction to a twelve month old?

Why can older children not remember to close the bathroom door to keep the 12 month old out NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES I TELL THEM!

Why is there a house full of brand new toys and yet all the baby wants to play with is the toilet the garbage and the houseplants?

Why, of all the crud on the floor, does the baby choose the poisonous poinsettia leaf to chew on?

Why did I buy a new garbage can with a lid? It is just even MORE fun to play with than the old one?

Why is my 8 year old better at the Wiifit than I am?

Why can't chocolate be a health food?

Why am I totally boring to be around until I get on the computer?

These questions plague me...I just want to know...why?

Bun loves the toilet, too! Luckily, Fiver has some strong obsessive tendencies, so we put him in charge of closing doors/toilet lids. He's pretty good at it.

Bun has also started climbing out of his crib. We are in so much trouble with this one!
