    Oh My!! Can I just get a load of laundry in?

    Have you all ever had that "I need you to look at me and I need to know what you are doing constantly, and watch me! watch me! watch me!" kid in your care? I just want to go to the bathroom by myself, or get a load of laundry in with out, "what are you doing?" "can I help?" "can I come?"......love her, but VERY annoyed sometimes!!

    I usually LOVE the "help", for some reason, with this one little charactor lately, I feel like if she could, she'd velcro to my backside, or crawl inside my head. Always on my "hip", I may have nightmares like wake up in the middle of the night and she is at the edge of my bed (wide eyed) "can I help?" "what are you doing" "can I see". AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH! terrifying!

    I also have a 2.5 year old who is ADORABLE and kind and such a good little boy but he does that too. It goes like this:

    Him: "what are you doing?"
    Me: Making snack
    "Why?"
    "Don't you want to eat?"
    "What's that?"
    "Cheese"
    "Why?"
    "Because I'm putting cheese in your snack."
    "Why?"
    "Because cheese is yummy."
    "Oh" laughs. Two seconds later: "Watch this".
    Look over and he's stacking his food.
    "Wow!"
    "What are you doing now?"
    That's all within about 3 minutes...constant.. .all day!

    I feel you!!

    This was our best conversation yet:
    "What are you doing?"
    "giving (son) medication"
    "Why?"
    "Cause his teeth hurt"
    "Why?"
    "Cause he's getting new teeth."
    "Why?"
    "Cause that's what babies do."
    "Why?"
    "I don't know, ask God."
    "What?"

    Hahahaha. The look on his face..priceless

    I have one like that. He follows me everywhere and asks about EVERYTHING! Even when he knows what I'm doing..why I'm doing it...how. etc.. He's french, so when I'm over it, I start only answering in english. And make the answers REALLY long! He's usually gone to find a friend before I know it.

    A good reply to the "why" is, "well, why do you think?" Then you can tune them out while they go into a preschooler spiel on the existentialism of teeth. LOL My sister in law taught me this trick when mine were little, and it really works.

    Alpha I do the same thing ... Why do you think ? It does work or they just stop ...Well for a while. I also will ignore them as sometimes it's just an attempt to get some attention.
