I have been tagged by the ever bubbley, friendly and now very pregnant who blogs at Emmy’s Mummy  to carry on a fun meme set by the lovely ladies who are  in their meme exploring life’s why? moments. You know when your children ask endelssly “But why Mummy?” Here is our chance to vent a few questions too!

The rules are as follows:

1. Post your whys – as many or as few as you like

2. Link your post to Mummy Central

3. Tag 5 bloggers to keep this going

4. Feel free to leave your questions below if you aren’t a blogger but demand some answers!

Elaine who Blogs at Littlesheep Learning because I think I she will have some familiar work life balance why’s. 

 who blogs about life with her gorgeous twins as I think she will have some funny questions.

Catherine who Blogs at Mummy Lion as I bet she will have some why’s on life with her little cub.

who blogs about life with her beautiful girls and I’m sure they will generate some mummy why’s!
