Why? Rhetorical Question

This happened earlier. We just got back from a great camping weekend (pics of that to come later) and I had to take a shower. That surprisingly happened with no issues other than the baby screaming for the last 3 minutes of it. So I did a few more unpacking tasks, a load of laundry, fed Noah, and thought I could dry my hair real quick.....wrong!

I finished my hair to find Noah sitting on the floor pouring, just dumping baby powder all over his four wheeler. I yell at him all the time for this so I was SO mad! I put him in his room for a time out while I  had to take time to clean it up and I find myself asking "why? Why is this happening?" But in the same thought sentence, I know why. I'm a mom, I wasn't paying attention to a 2 1/2 year old, and Daddy left to go out of town. Even though I am clearly aware of the "why" I still feel burdened when these moments happen.

Moms certainly have tons of patience!

You've got to admit, it's just a teensy bit funny. Kids do the darndest things don't they?
