How do you explain to a toddler ...

... that the funny tingling sensation he feels in his foot is because his foot "fell asleep" while he was sitting on it and there is nothing mommy or daddy can do about it?

... that in some wooden puzzles the piece fits all the way in and in other puzzles it sticks up a little bit?

... that the very blanket that helped him sleep when he was cold the other night is now keeping him awake as he is trying to go to sleep? And that to be truly "just like daddy" he'd use the blanket in the cold but not when it's hot?

... that mommy's sorry: the spicy sauce on the pizza that burned your mouth was a new one that I'd never used before. Oops.
