Out of the Mouths of Moms

Oh my word. As if the things that come out of our children's mouths weren't enough. Indeed, they say the darnedest things sometimes. Don't believe me? Just check out one of my posts by the same name, like this one, or this one. But honestly, I think the things I hear myself say from time to time - okay, just about hourly - can be downright absurd. And as you know, I'm all about laughing at myself. (Because if I couldn't laugh at myself, I'd surely be crying!) So let's dive right in, shall we?

Here’s what I’ve heard myself saying lately:

"Callan, no more screaming like a velociraptor, please."

"What's that? Oh, well. I sure am glad you did not drop your teddy bear in the potty."

"Kayden! Put your pants on and stop screaming at the ants!!"

"You and Cameron and Grammy are superheroes? How fun! What's that? I can't? Why not?? Well, what am I? Chopped liver?! Oh, well, thanks very much."

"Okay superheroes, let's go look for the trash! Where should we look first? My room? Thanks for that."

"No Cameron, Daddy does not have a baby in his tummy." (Bahahahaaaa!)

"Kayden, please get the pig off of your brother's head."

"Oh my. Pleeease do not disassemble the diaper pail again."

"Cam, honey, you may not take away your brother's pants."

"No, we did not drop Callan's pacifier in the toilet, we dropped it in the trash."

"Please don't bean your brother in the head with that ball. Hey!"


"There's a stinkbug on your cheesecake."


So what have you heard yourself saying lately? Feel free to chime right in with a comment or two about what you've said to your kids. Or your dog. Or your grandkids. Or your students (because Lord knows, teachers say the darnedest things, too!) Or random kids at the grocery store. Whatever! Join the fun!
