"Just Because"

Aidan's latest saying is "Just Because"..and he seems to think it's the perfect response to everything. This may or may not be so cute.

Daddy: "Aidan why did grandma by you Neville (a new addition to his Thomas Train set)?"
Aidan: " Oh just because, I don't have Neville"
(hmmm maybe not so cute, sounds a bit entitled if you ask me)

Me: " Aidan why did you push Liam?"
Aidan: "Just because, he was in my way"
(definitely not so cute)

Grandma " Aidan why is that dinosaur called T-Rex?"
Aidan: "Just because...hmmm...his name starts with a T and ends with rex"
(awe, that was cute, brought a smile to all our faces)

Yesterday we went to a friends house who was having an "Iron Chef Cook Off" the challenge ingredient was pineapple". And "just because", I decided to forgo the itchy mouth and rashy neck (yes I have a food allergy to pineapple) I decided to bake a dessert without pineapple. I know it would have been fun to participate but I just couldn't bring myself to dealing with a pineapple. So I baked a spiced carrot cake and we also brought over one of my favorite bottles of cab adorned with a hostess gift, a handmade(not by me ofcourse) rainbow wood bottle stopper, everyone needs one of those, right? And because it was also Valentine's day, I hand stamped a little tag with my newest "V" Day stamp, this darling little gumball machine that has one heart shaped gumball in it. I had big plans for that stamp, unfortunately, this was the only use I got out of it because I just couldn't pull it together to do all those great craft projects I so wanted to do. Oh, and "just because" that bottle of cab is one of my faves (add sheepish smirk here) I think I may have consummed half of it myself...hence, the wallop of a headache I woke up with this morning.
