1) Because the bouncer doesn't have a "turbo" setting.
2) Because I have to burp...again.
3) Because I have to spit up/projectile vomit across the room...again.
4) Because I just spit up/projectile vomited everything in my tummy...so I'm hungry.
5) Because when I pulled my binky out of my mouth my binky came out of my mouth.
6) Because I'm wearing something other than a sleeper.
7) Because I'm hungry and this side is broken.
8) Because I'm not in my swing.
9) Because it's between 8:15 and 10:00 pm
10) Because somebody other than Daddy is trying to get me to calm down*.
11) Because you people are horrible parents and I wish I'd never been born*.
12) Because I'm in my carseat/stroller and we're not moving...and that is dumb.
13) Because baby clothing designers are idiots and clothing has to go over my head.
14) Because mommy is in the shower.
15) Because I'm sitting in my own poop.

Thankfully, the baby doesn't yell very much**. However, to make up for it, both dogs have taken to howling when she does...just in case we didn't hear her.
