Weird Things Moms Say

Say What??

Say What??

Anyone else find the weirdest things coming out of your mouth when speaking to the crazy cute beings known as your children? I often pause after saying something to one of my children and think “Wow, that would sound completely crazy if someone wasn’t in this scenario to understand!”. I thought I’d share a few random quotes and the adult side of conversations from the mouth of this weird mommy, free of the context they were responding to. 😉

“Did you really just fill your teacup from the toilet?!? Don’t drink that! Give it to me!! Wash your hands! Because people poop where that water came from! Yes, yuck!”

“Peanut butter is not paint! I don’t care if it makes your room smell good!”

“You would scratch someone, too, if she picked you up by the tail and spun you in circles! No, I am not putting the cat in timeout! I’d put you there if he hadn’t scratched you already, though! I’m mean? Ummm…thanks!”

“Get your foot out of my hair!”

“You can’t fly. No, you can’t! Not even if you’re wearing a cape. Don’t climb up there. Stop! GET DOWN NOWWWW!!!”

Say What??

Say What??

“Don’t put your toes in your mouth. Because they are dirty, that’s why!”

“No, you can’t drive my van to the park! You’re five years old! I’m glad you watched Daddy drive lots of times, but that doesn’t mean you can drive yourself! I know you drive your power wheel, but that’s different.”

“The closet is not a toilet!!!”

“Daddy doesn’t make milk. Yes, I know he has nipples, but only mommies make milk. Yeah, it probably would taste funny with all that hair on them, anyway.”

“That’s sweet of you, but I really don’t want the biggest booger ever.”

This is just a small sample of the odd things I’ve heard come out of my own mouth in response to my children, if this gives you any hint into the tee-total lunacy of my household. Anyone else have some doozies you’ve caught yourself saying?

National Write a Letter of Appreciation Week

National Write A Letter of Appreciation Week: 1-7

In honor of National Write A Letter of Appreciation Week, I’d like to challenge each of you to write a letter to someone you who has made an impact on your life and let them know! If you do it on a public forum, feel free to link to it in the comments below, and spread the inspiration to show our appreciation for others. 🙂 I’m sharing mine below, to someone I don’t normally express my gratitude to in so many words…

Dad and Grandbabies

Dad and Grandbabies

Dear Dad,

I don’t always say it, but I appreciate you.

I carry with me daily as a parent myself now the lesson you taught to us growing up that providing for your children is a top priority, working hard to make sure we never went without anything we needed. I admire the example of generosity to others that you have set for me, even though I think you are absolutely bonkers for being so giving to some people I can see so clearly don’t deserve your help. I appreciate you helping Mom teach me how to be a good steward of the things God gives me, and how to save for a rainy day. I am grateful that you gave me the opportunity to raise so many different kinds of animals growing up, because those are some of my best memories from childhood (dressing up goats, rolling around hedgehogs, hanging out on Jack’s back, and on). I appreciate the strong morals you and Mom taught me, and the foundation that has given me as I make my own decisions in life. I’m glad to know that if I really, truly need you for anything, you’ll be there for me.

There are many things I appreciate about you, but I don’t want it to ramble on or make it all go to your head. We all know that thing is already swollen up the size of an elephant on steroids already, right? 😉 (Yep, I’m also grateful for the gift of sarcasm you endowed on me, whether you are glad for that one or not…HA! 🙂 )

Love You Oodles & Truckloads,

Your Favorite Daughter *Shhh!!! Don’t tell them I’m your only one.

Alright, y’all, is there anyone who would you like to show your appreciation for? Give them a shout out below! 🙂
