Today's list is sort of filched from Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer. She wrote a post this week about the unbelievable things she couldn't believe were coming out of her mouth. According to the comments, lots of other women have kids just like hers, and end up saying lots of the same kinds of things, like "Did you use SHAMPOO?" Can you guess which ones were said to young children, and which to older children? You'd be surprised! (There were so many that I couldn't limit myself to just thirteen.)
A LIST OF THINGS PARENTS SAY TO KIDS AND THEN ASK THEMSELVES "DID I REALLY JUST SAY THAT?"
When you change your underwear, you take the old underwear OFF
Please don't put a cushion over your sister's face and then sit on it.
Do you have underwear on?
No, we can't put your baby brother in the microwave and see how long it takes to cook him.
Put on your shoes AFTER YOU PUT ON YOUR SOCKS
Brush your hair, all of your hair, even THE BACK!
Put the dirty clothes in the hamper, NOT THE CLEAN CLOTHES
Please do not lick your sister's face
Put your pants on. Put your pants on OVER YOUR BOTTOM. PUT THEM ON AND KEEP THEM ON.
We don't take a bath in our clothes
Stop salting your sister!
Put your clothes away neatly in your drawer. Then shut the drawers. Please do not unfold it before you put it away.
Take a shower and wash your hair...and get your hair WET!
Don't bite the kitty
A hanger is not a bow and arrow...it's just not!
Pancakes do not go on your head. They are for eating, they are not hats.
Did you comb your hair? TODAY???
Wash your hands AND USE SOAP!
Did you clean it MY clean or YOUR clean?
