My girls have been doing this thing lately where they will ask me where something is, where something goes, or how they do something they do almost everyday. Its driving me nuts, because while there are no stupid questions, these are just dumb. Every time Mackenzie gets in the shower, she asks "How do I make it warmer". The response: How do you make it warmer?
Cause I am tired of repeating myself
Mommy, where's the case for this DS game?
Good question, Where is the case?
Cause its not my reponsibility
Mommy, what do I have to pack for school today?
Um, this is the fifth year we've been doing this, really, if you have to ask, I have concerns.
Mommy, where does this (insert dish here) go?
Hm, where does that go?
- Its like they are refusing to think for themselves right now. I know some kids go through stages like this, but this is ridiculous, both of them at the same time. And Bug is worse than Bean.
I am also having a hard time with having to repeat requests. And it is at times reducing me to yelling.
But then, there are other times when they are asked to do something and they do it brilliantly - like last week when I asked Mackenzie to tidy the entry, she organized everything on her own, pulled up the boot tray and mat, swept and vacummed and swiffered. I couldn't believe my eyes.
