The things we say as parents

I got this idea from Veronica. She has a FB status about things she never expected to hear herself say and others have comments with ones of their own. Jackie's nearly killed me! ROFL So I thought that we could do that as a thread here just for giggles.

So what have you said to your child that you would not expect to hear yourself say?

For example: A common phrase here is, "Lyla honey, please do not lick the bottom of that shoe."

"Get your fingers out your bum"

"Take the DVD/shoe/hairbrush/book/cat litter/stone/stick/cat food/toy car/pen/bottle top/mud/leaf/etc out your mouth"

"Get your finger out MY nose"

"please leave the vegetables alone"-this was in the grocery shop

"stop poking my boobs"-this was DS2..who's nearly 3..he was poking them and going "BONG" every time making a tune :rolleyes:

"Please don't touch your brothers penis"-this is for both boys!!

There's more, I'll come back to you

Good idea Anna Biggrin Jackie's cracked me up too!!

If anyone didn't see my facebook, I had to tell my DD "We do not sit in the fridge!"

I'm always saying "We do not play in the kittys' water!" "Do not eat catfood!" and "No going off the couch/bed/etc. headfirst!"

And at least once I've said "Get your underwear off your brother's head!" Which is one time too many! Blum 3

Please don't put your mouth on the cat's butt.

Please don't lick my foot.

We don't play with garbage from the garbage can.

That's for your mouth, not your fingers (as she pokes my nipple after breastfeeding)

Please don't chew on daddy's slippers.

For those that didn't see it on FB: "Don't eat baby Jesus!"

"How did you do that?!" (open a locked garbage can, turn on the dishwasher, etc)

"Stop moving the TV!"

"Where did he go?" (DH and I say this to each other ALL the time)

"Let's not eat the cat food again!" along with "Oh God please stop eating the cat food!"

Oh goodness, I've got 5 years of crazy phrases!

"No spiders inside. If you want to play with it, play with it OUTside."

"Boogers are not after dinner treats."

"Please stop dancing on the kitchen table. Please."

"First take a bite of your pizza, then you can have more carrots." (My 5 yo LOVES veggies!)

"Do not smack my boob."

"We don't wrestle when we're naked." (Said to brothers just after bath time)

"Do not suck on batteries!"

Man there are so many more! This thread is hilarious!

Here's the one from today. "Do not wipe your snot on your sisters head!" "Don't wipe it on the dog either!" "No, not on the couch!"

"Grady, are you done pooping? No. Well, maybe you would be if you'd stop playing with your wiener and just poop!"

"Clara, honey, climbing in the dishwasher is not a good idea."
