Since I get this question 146 times a day (Why?) I thought I'd ask a few of my own whys.

Why are new shoes the best toys in the world?

Why, when I asked Sophia if she was REALLY going to leave me and go off to preschool, did she get the smiliest face and say, "YES!"?

Why are toys so difficult to see when it's time for children to pick them up?

Why does five pounds make me go from in shape, to whale-esque?

Why do I feel no need to correct the way Sophia pronounces freckle (frickle)?

Why do manufacturers continue to make children's clothing in white, and why do I continue to buy them?

Why do able-bodied eight year-olds find infant walking toys so much more satisfying than, say, the closet-full of their own toys?

Why did Chase task me with acquiring protective athletic supporters for our sons?

Why did I feel so incredibly uncomfortable with this task?

Why are athletic supporters packaged with large pictures of mens groins on them?

Why was I so traumatized that I spent last night giddily thinking of sending Chase to buy Sophia's first training bra?

Why is revenge always an appealing idea?

Now that I think about it, maybe some questions are better left unanswered...

I would love to see Chase buying a training bra.....awesome!

Yeah, I kind of feel the same way about teaching boys to pee standing up. How should I know how to teach a little boy to aim? I've got no experience in that area! And I definitely think you should send Chase to get a training bra for Sophie, except maybe that would traumatize sophie.... maybe you could send him to buy her tampons or something :)

Why ask why, Anna.

Also, why not?

Also, too, I vote tampons and not training bras for Chase to purchase. But maybe you should let it be Sophie's Choice...
