The Mommy-Files

Mark and I like to watch the X-Files. Due to the lack of a babysitter we have not seen the new movie yet, but we can't wait. We watched it from the very beginning, but I have not seen any of the reruns in years because we don't have cable now. Of course, whenever you watch an episode you leave with more questions than answers. As I was cleaning and coming across things today I thought of some of my own questions that I still don't have the answers to. And I've been a Mommy for 10 years now!


1. Why will my children go and get a new roll of toilet paper, but not put it on the roll-holder? They just set it on top.

2. Why do children's shoes always disapper into thin air on Sunday morning, but on Monday afternoon I can find an assortment of shoes scattered on the living room floor?

3. How come James always waits until I put a dry diaper on him and then poo-poos? Why can't he just go in the wet diaper? Why does it have to be a clean dry one?

4. How come babies always start running a fever and pulling at their ears at 4:15 pm when the doctor's office closes at 4:30 pm?

These are just a few of the things I wondered about today. If you have any answers please let me know.


  1. Just wanted to stop by and say hello. You have a lovely family!

  2. It must be sanctification! One day we will be saints! :0)

    (But if this is true, it must mean I need a lot of it. . .)
