Things I Will Probably Tell My Kids
Here are some sayings I either already say or that I can see myself saying when I have kiddos
- •Don't go away mad, just go awayMy boyfriend told me how his mom would always say this to him when he was upset and I couldn't stop laughing because not only was this hilarious, but very wise to say to your kid. It obviously sticks if he's 21 and still remembers this line
- •Why aren't you eating? You don't like my food? Fine, I'll never make this again for you.My grandma's most favorite line to get us to eat more.
- •Put a napkin in your lapI already say this to my boyfriend, who is basically a helpless child when he eats.
- •Awww is this for me?!Two scenarios when I would say this: the first is obviously when they draw something (hopefully something sweet) for me and I get all gushy as the mommy feelings take over. The second is when they get a present or have candy from Halloween or anything that makes them happy and I take it away and pretend it's mine just to see them get upset. You can do what you want with that information.
- •Ohhhhhh no.I yell this at my cats to make them stop whatever they're doing. My mom did it to me and it works like a charm.
- •Excuse you!This is my own saying and this is to establish the fact that they did something wrong. I win. Because I'm the mom.
- •How many cookies do you want?Cookies are a must at my house and it's not a question if you WANT any, it's a question of HOW MUCH.
- •Put some dirt on it/walk it off/suck it up, you're fineFor when they fall and have a small cut or some kid accidentally bumps into them or they're playing and get hit in the face with a ball. My mom didn't take my sister to the hospital for her broken arm until it swell up and turned purple. That's just life kid.
- •Of course we can keep it!This is for when I'm with my kids and we find a kitten outside all alone without a mom and we save it and they ask if we can keep him/her. My answer is always yes.
- •I love you..
