While parenting ushers in with it a whole new world of love and sleepless nights, it also brings things out of us that we never thought it would, like letting your house be “clean enough” because you just can’t keep up with the streams of little messes left by little hands. Guilt and emotions run high on any mamas list, whether we want them to or not. And while I find the things kids say around here quite funny and entertaining, it’s also funny to me the things that come out of my mouth now in response. Things I never thought I’d say, that is until I had kids… especially my boys, because for some reason, on top of using anything they can to hit each other on top of the head or wrestle, they are obsessed with wearing as little clothing as possible.
1// We don’t strip at the table.
2// Don’t eat your brother’s toe!
3// Where are your pants?
4// The bath is for washing… not drinking.
5// You can’t sit on your brother’s face!
6// Oh, no thank you. I don’t need your finger up my nose. Or in my ear. Or my mouth.
7// Chocolate doesn’t count as dinner. No, neither does a packet of sugar.
8// The toilet isn’t a place where we put shoes!
9// Dinner is for eating, not throwing.
10// We don’t hide candy down our pants. Please take it out before it melts.What crazy things have you found yourself saying to a little one in your life lately?
