Why can’t I wear these boots?!  (Wicked Wednesdays)

Over the last few months Nerys has learnt the word ‘why’ and my brain is struggling to cope with all the times I’m asked it in a day, and the answers I have to come up with .

The first time I realised she knew the word was when we left the house to pick Rhys up from school one day and she asked “moon?”.  I said that she couldn’t see the moon at the moment.  To which she replied, “why?”.

I have to admit I stumbled over my answer a bit, I really wasn’t expecting the question!

Now, I hear said question about 1000 times a day.  On this occasion she was asking why she couldn’t wear these boots.  When I told her it was because they were mine, this was the reaction I got.


You know, Rhys never went through the ‘why’ phase.  Parents with children who did, please tell me it doesn’t last forever!

    Luckily I haven’t got to that stage yet, and I really hope we don’t get to it either! But saying that, the fact their your boots probably isn’t a good enough reason judging by that face! 🙂 xx

      Hope you get away without going through the ‘why’ phase! And yep, my reasoning wasn’t good enough for her! x

      The worst part is, my 4 year old is now joining in with the ‘why’! x

    Haha, kids and adults boots go hand on hand. They don’t like the word No and it seems to appeal more to them for that reason 😉 #WickedWednesdays

      Oh that’s so true that anything you say no to is so much more appealing to them! x
