    All good food for thought, to be sure.

  • All the answers to these are easy. Except I just can’t understand how you don’t like Greek food.


  • Ok the Greek food one was a little bit “higher grade” for me!!! My question is this… in an entire world where the average number of kids in a home is 2.something (or so) ie the ratio of kids to parents is a little higher… Why do they make kids toothpaste in itty bitty tubes and adult tubes are so big… Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Why can’t we get “Colgate glitter” in a by bulk and save package – I ask this every month when I buy one tube for the adults and goodness knows how many tubes for the kids.

  • Shayne

    All very good questions. These 2 in particular have baffled me since I first became a mother:

    Why do women care how other women give birth?

    Why do women care how other women chose to feed their babies?

    I’ve never understood the belief that there is a single right or wrong way to do either of these things. What worked for me may not work for you. And goodness knows what worked for one of my kids was not the same as what worked for the other one!

  • I don’t know HOW you don’t like Greek food.

    One question I don’t expect to know the answer to until I can ask God in person: Mosquitoes…WHY?

  • Still fitting for today.

    If only there was a way we could all do what was best for our own families and have that be the final and perfect answer.
