Questions a parent asks

Posted by admin on February 9th, 2009 filed in General, Parenting

Beren received no less than 23 Hot Wheels cars for Christmas, which was not even 2 months ago.  I have given him 5 Hot Wheels since then, making the total 28.  He had a whole convoy of cars, an entire fleet, from his birthday and other trips to the toy store before Christmas.  That means he is in excess of 60 cars.  So how is it that I cleaned up his toys and exactly 16 of the cars are accounted for?  Where do they go?  He is very good about selecting only 1 or 2 cars to take out of the house with him and he is extremely mindful of them so they always return with him.  Where could they all be?  Maybe they are under the sofa…

Why are raisins so sticky?  Maybe the reason all the books caution parents against giving raisins to young kids isn’t that they are a choking hazard, but because they smoosh, emit glue, and then stick to everything.  You think you have them all cleaned up and then you come out into the kitchen to find the tiny dried fruits smashed on the floor.  They stick there.  You have to get down there, all the way onto the floor, and scrape them up.  That’s a big deal when you are pregnant.

    i personally think that you have a house dragon that is hoarding your son’s hot wheels as treasure in its nest (is nest the right word or would it be parking lot?). to be sure a VERY rare species of house dragon.

    He does have all those little baby dragons on his bed. Maybe they are the house dragon’s offspring. It’s all starting to make sense…

    I shouldnt be telling you this, but I will anyway. Every little boy is born knowing this. He is destroying the raisins to make a glue, and then gluing his cars to the undersides of things. That is why you never see them. Your only hope is to buy a metal detector.
