Because I said so…. this is one of the most overused mom-isms in the world, or maybe just in my family. When I am busy and don’t feel like explaining, because is the answer. If because is questioned, and it often is , it is expanded on with “I said so” as if this is the end all reason.
The problem with this is that I taught my kids it is okay to question. So in trying to shorten a discussion, I have actually made it longer.
There are so many more Because that would make it shorter,
…..because the Bible says so. No argument there, except maybe where.
…..because that is how it is done. Although I can still see why coming.
…..because that’s the rule in our house. We don’t have many so this one is a tight answer.
….because you have school tomorrow. Great for weekdays.
