B is for...

B is for…Because I said so



“Because I said so” is what I often find myself saying to my children.
After a long hard day of housework, emails and blogging.
“Because I said so” fits.


“Because I said so” is what comes to mind when asked for the 100th time,
Mom, why can’t you take me here, or why can’t I have this?
“Because I said so” fits.


“Because I said so” are the words that practically jump off my tongue,
When any of my children open their mouths to ask me why one more time.
Because I said so” fits.


“Because I said so” is the one thing I dread saying & said I would never say.
Then the long day and hard work of being a parent starts to take its toll. 
 And the words...
“Because I said so” just fit.

Hugs. After dealing with kids asking the same question over & over again, a parent gets tired of explaining the whys....and because I said so, DOES fit.

Excellent write, how it brought back memories of when my 3 were small. Why? they'd asked "Because I said so" came the reply.
Thanks for recalling those memories.

Sometimes that's the best response.

Been there done that a couple of million times, times four. With four girls it was always, why, why, why? After a few thousands explanations, unfortunately, becasue I said so fit.

Love to you, your beautiful family, and your mom and dad!

Love it! We're the parents, we don't always need to explain our reasonings.

Ian said...

Exactly and that's all there is to it!

It's the easy answer and the kids have to accept it I guess, but they're not usually buying it. I know I didn't, did you?
Very cute bit of verse, Shannon.

lol So funny and so true. After raising three children and now raising a fourth, there have been so many times when I have been tempted to say that, and I'm sure there have been a few times when I said it. Such an easy cop-out especially when the last button has been pushed.

Cool. I like Because I said so. It definitely fits.
I am doing the ABC thingy too.
So fun! ;)

When I seen the title of your post, it brought back memories of how my mom would use the same phrase so many times. Of course I never found that remark very satisfying as a kid.

Lisa said...

LOL. Sounds VERY familiar. :)

Happy Friday!

Definitely reminds me of when I was a kid... that was my mom's favorite response... and I was always so inquisitive wanting to know more!

HAHA! Because I said so is a very common phrase in this house.
