There are questions I ask while parenting, that I know will result in a terrifying answer. I have to wonder because, well, that’s what moms do.
But really, I don’t want to know the answer to a lot of them, like where do all my toddler’s underwear go. Seriously though…can you help a mother out because those teeny tiny undies are expensive.
Things Moms Don’t Really
Want To Know
What parts of their body our kids haven’t really washed?
Why the sock is crunchy and buried in the back of the closet?
What did Grandma feed the kids when they were at her house all weekend?
How long has this sippy cup been under the car seat/couch/bed?
What jokes have our kids learned on the playground? – I experienced the answer to this one recently when my 10 year old told me a joke that involved Miss Piggy and Kermit’s finger. I asked him if he knew why he was laughing and he said no. I didn’t explain. Nope.
How pee can get ALL over the bathroom, except inside the toilet?
If the dog or the kids made the mess?
How much money we’ve spent on batteries/the ice cream trucks/claw machines?
How many hours we’ve wasted on cartoons with bossy toddlers named Caillou and talking squirrels because we don’t stop watching when our kids leave the room?
How old the candy is they just found and are already eating?
What are some things you didn’t really want to know the answer to, as a mom, but had to ask?
