Stupid Answer?

I'm sure you've been there. Probably done that. You know what I mean. Been asked a dumb question which then deserves a rhetorical answer.

Things like....

(while watching me make spaghetti for dinner): What are we eating tonight?

Uh, chicken?



(pouring rain outside): Is it raining today?

Um, of course not.

It's sunny.

(snowing): Do we need to wear boots? Nope. Be cold and wet.

(while AG has a snack): Can I have a snack too?

Nope! Only 7 year olds can have a snack today.

(while watching me make cookies): What are you doing? Uhhhh.....eating cereal.

You get the picture.

So tonight, Abby said to me.....

"I don't like your stupid answers."

Huh?

Well mom, when I ask, "Can I color (when AG is too) and you say NO, that is a stupid answer."

Nope, that is a rhetorical, don't ask mom because it's dumb, kind of answer.

If I was a fly on your wall I would probably die from laughing....

We have one, standard answer to those types of what-are-you-doing questions in our house: "I'm baking a cake."

Stops 'em in their tracks every time. Of course, then they wanna eat cake...

Oh my. Jadyn does this same thing. It can be exasperating at times, depending on what mood she catches me in.

Ha ha!! I love Teresa's answer for this. I should try it.

Oh boy. Try to keep your sanity through it all. :)

Even worse than answering the dumb question is answering the same question at least 4 different times. My children love to ask me the same question over and over again.

Oh, what a relief to know I'm not the only one who does that :)
