Things I never thought I'd say

Fly, where did you get that little piece of wallpaper?

Gah! Stop playing in the toilet!

I can't put your diaper on with your butt up in the air like that.

You just bit a chunk out of your potty seat!

The cat doesn't like it when you pour things on her.

We can't play with this really noisy toy right now because it's sleeping.

And finally . . . .

What did I come into this room for?

I'm Sincere Week starts in two weeks! Be thinking about the bloggers you admire and how you would imitate their style.

So funny! I might add...
* Do you need to hold my hand while you go poop?
* Is that [paper/part of your book/etc.] in your mouth?
* Spit it out into mama's hand.

I wish I could say I don't know what you are talking about, but it's all too familiar!
Fly is training already? That's awesome! How is it going??

haha...SOOOO true! I could add a dozen more weird things I've said since Tate was born too...ha! But that last one...yeah, I think I do that at LEAST once a day - usually more!

My personal favorite is "Don't drive cars on the Christmas tree."

Fly is *not* potty training right now, but we have a potty for him to get him comfortable sitting on it.

Actually it's potty #2 because the first one, yes, has a foam seat that he likes to eat.

That is hilarious. Leave it to you to give me a good laugh out loud chuckle. Now you know you must keep all these things together and write a book one day.

I can totally relate to some of these things you've said. One that I hopefully won't have to say is What did I come to this store for?? I'll look down at that TJ Maxx gift card and remember...ah yes, something for me.

Blogger tasha said...

I enjoy your posts, and this one is one of my faves so far...mostly b/c I've actually said some of these...some during a TJMaxx ;) shopping trip!Oh, oh,'s one: "Please get out of the dryer." Hahahaha!!

"Stop playing in the toilet!" has been one of our favorites around here lately and if I didn't ask myself "What did I come in this room for?" so often maybe I would remember to keep the toilet seat down! The joys of Motherhood! LOL!
P.S. I love me some TJ Maxx! :)

Blogger Kim said...

Oh yes, there are many things I have found myself saying that I never thought I, "We don't put toys in our sister's pants". Silly things like that!
My favorite was when I had a potty training 2 year old, a 6 month old in the sling and we were at TJ MAXX (true story here) and he had to pee. So, I took him to the bathroom, stood there (with the baby practically falling out of the sling) holding him up to pee just for him to say, I don't have to go any more. Oh yeah, and it was in December, we were all sorts of bundled up. So, as soon as we leave the bathroom and go to the car, he pees. So, I then said, "Remember, we potty on the toilet, not in our car seats!".
The joys of Motherhood huh?

I completely understand. My daily conversations of "Don't chew on the dog toys", "We don't eat dog food", "what did you just put in your mouth", are getting quite odd. I did stop by for the TJ Maxx giveaway but I will come back.

Blogger Jeni said...

I say things all the time that make me just shake my when I told my girlie, "Don't bite the kitty!"

TJ Maxx! Please? :-)

I was a nanny for a couple of years and one day I was talking to my sister and saw one of the kids brushing the ceiling with a broom, I yelled, "Miriam, get that off the ceiling" My sister thought it was SO funny!

I am right there with you on this! Been there, done that! LOL! Isn't it funny when you hear yourself saying things your Mother said to you when you were little! LOL!

Oh, yeah...TJ Maxx is the best place to shop! Would love to win a gift card one day to shop there! Thanks so much for doing this!

I can never remember what I go into a room for, and it happens to me also when I go to TJ Maxx as well. I go in looking for a pair of jeans and come out 2 hours later with 14 items and no jeans!! I love that place and can spend hours in there. Enter me please.

This one is my personal favorite -
"Did you wipe? Let me check your butt!"

Yeah, I went to college for that!

I need that TJ Maxx card; they just opened a new store right down the road!

"Don't put that up your nose!"

Oh my word! I have said some of those things, but taking a bite out of the potty seat? That beats any of my kids' things! LOL And I have some pretty amazing stories to tell about my kids, like stuffing poop in my Kirby vaccuum attachments or putting poop statuettes on my stairs for decoration.
Maybe I should regift the gift card to TJ Maxx back to you so you can get a new potty seat, lol.
