I used to get annoyed with my parents' 'stupid' questions. Now I get annoyed with the kids' stupid questions: which bridle should I use? Why, the one that's set up for the horse you're riding, dear. Do you want me to check the horses' water? No, I'd like you to let them die of thirst.... etc. Kids and parents alike are quite annoying, myself included!

TBH, I ring up my mum after I've gone grocery shopping and go "You know how much I got for 50 bucks? Two weeks worth of groceries!! I got a frozen chicken for $4.95, carrots were 99c a kilo, I decided to get some mussels on special - they were ONLY SIX DOLLARS A KILO!" etc. Poor mum XD

OMG My brother does that.. pisses me off to no end. It's called looking and taking things out to see if it's behind. Sheesh..

Don't even tell me that it's not needed because even if the stuff is right there, smack in front of them, nobody but me can find it.

As far as quizzing.... I am guilty!!! Why? Because if I DON'T, I go outside and find chickens staring at an empty water container, pigs banging their empty feeder and cows off eating the neighbor's grass because the gate is wide open!

Today I was trying to figure out why on earth it was taking a kid half of forever to wash out the 6 water buckets I needed for stalls. It wasn't..... she was putting the clean buckets back in the stack of dirty ones.
lmbo too funny!

haha sometimes my parents do things that are similar, maybe not as extreme as show and tell. Now that I've moved out, I go home to my parents house with my husband on occasion. We live 3 hours away, so it is special when we get to see them. My dad always buys me something to eat, usually not something very healthy (like laffy taffy, potato chips, etc) and points it out like "see look what I bought for you!"

I think its just one of his ways of telling me he loves me :) Trust me, when you do get away from it, you'll miss it someday. I always treasure those moments when I walk in the door and he hands me something, just because it makes you feel like a kid again, and you know you are loved
