10 Odd Things Parents Say: Or At Least I've Said
As parents, we tend to find ourselves saying things we never thought we would before be having children. We laugh and joke about it with other mothers at the park or on mom dates. However, I never really thought about all of the odd things I have said since becoming a mom.
Life moves pretty fast... we have jobs, new children, outside families and everything else. It's hard to remember all of the crazy things we end up having to say throughout our parenting journeys. It took me a while, but I was able to remember a few.
Here are 10 things that I have said in my 12 years of parenting:
No, you can't go outside naked.
Don't eat the paper!
Ew! We don't eat our poop!
Why is there glue in the toilet?
Please don't pee.
Why is there a steak knife in the pantry?
Who put scissors in the wall?
There's slime on the ceiling!
Quiet Down. Quiet down Please! I SAID QUIET!!!
Why did you set your blanket on fire!
Thinking back to when I was a single female with no children. I don't think I could have imagined having to say any of these things. I would have laughed hysterically at a mother who had to do so though. Maybe that's why I find them so funny today. Of course, I wasn't laughing at the time of stating them... In fact, I'm pretty sure my blood was boiling with anger during most of those sentences.
It's amazing to think about how much our lives have changed. Becoming 100% responsible for these small human beings when some of us, were still growing up ourselves. I'm speaking from experience... since I was 19 when I began my parenting journey.
If you could think of something you've said as a parent that you couldn't imagine you would have said beforehand. Let me know in the comments! I'd love to hear them! If I get enough, I can create another post with your suggestions!
