This is the new question.


Why is it time to go to bed?

Why is it time to take a bath?

Why do I have to leave my toy here?

Why does Daddy have to go to work?

Why is the mailman?

Pretty much everything we say to Desi...he responds with "Why?"

I don't think he really knows what he's saying.  I mean, his grasp on the English language is still very far from perfect (for instance, he says Pee-Mad-Ow for piano).  But, it's still pretty funny and cute. 

Here's a conversation from the other morning:

Me: "Desi, it's time to go to go to school."

Desi: "Why?"

Me: "Because Daddy needs to go to work."

Desi: "Why?"

Me: "Because I need to make money."

Desi: "Why?"

Me: "Because I owe money to the man."

Desi: "Why?" 

Me: "Because I wasted it all on cheap booze and women."

Desi: "Why?"

Me:  "Because I was tempted by the devil."

Desi: "Why?"

Me: "Why do you ask soo many questions?"

Desi: "Cookie."

We'll see how this conversation looks in a couple years.

I am looking forward to the day when Desi asks "why" for the 50th time and you respond "Because I said so." I will laugh myself off whatever I am sitting on....

For anyone that needs to hear this...Parenting is FREAKING hard!

Ok, it's time to get real, folks.   Do you have that friend or that family member that clearly lives the perfect life on Facebook and In...
