Things you never thought you'd say to your children - Page 2

"Because I said so." I know, I know. That's a terrible thing to say but sometimes you just get tired. :

"Those are mommy diapers, just like your diapers
." I was referring to my Kotex when my oldest son was 4 and found them.

No, you can't say that your teacher is hot...that's like saying your best friend's sister is hot. Gross!

Pre-pubescent boys...:

No, you may not put peanut butter an jelly sandwiches in the VCR.

You may not use my kitchen aide mixer to make mud pies.

Do not pee in the sandbox.

You are a girl, you have to sit to pee.

Stay out of my lingerie. You may not borrow it to wear to the club's fetish night. It is mine.

Goodbye... at my daughter's grave....

Why did you just dump an industrial tin of baby powder on the stairs? (Answer I got) To make clouds Mommy!

Did'nt you know that you have to take the soup out of the can to heat it in the microwave?

No,
you may not dye your hair green for class picture day.

If you don't stop that right now I am going to tape you to the ceiling fan! (Answer I got) Really? That'd be awesome! Will the fan hold me? (Goddess save me from 12 yo boys...)

Could you please do your laundry? (Said week after week after week after week....you get the idea.)
Stop drinking Dad's beer.
Put that cigar out while you're in the house. (Said to my 18 y.o. son who thinks he's a man.)
Why is 2 a.m. too early to come home?!
Don't roll the cat down the stairs in that box.
Next time, use boxing gloves instead of fists.

I hope you grow up and have a daughter just like you.
(I actually said these words to my 17 y.o. daughter...I couldn't believe it!)

I still remember how ominous it sounded when my mother said that to me and how horrible it made me feel.

It turns out that my SON is much more like me (both the good and the bad) than my daughter, but I was so afraid of saying the same thing to her in a fit of uncontrollable rage that I made a point of saying it, in a different tone of voice and under completely different circumstances, when we were having a particularly fun time in the ball pit at an indoor playground. I'm pretty sure I suceeded in turning my mother's curse into my own blessing, because dd gave me a huge hug and said, "I love you too, Mommy!"

Oh what a cute thread!! Why must my mind draw a blank now?!?! Perhaps b/c of the 4 dc that currently rule my life...
Back when brain begins to function again!!

My Mother said something similar to me, "I hope you have children who act just like you're acting." (I was a holy terror). Low and behold, my son is , lets just say, a very challenging child. Unfortunately, I've said the same thing to him once or twice. I hope I didn't jinx him!

OMG I totally let my daughter do this! She tied her 3 webkinz to the fan and turned it on high. They seemed to really like it.

I'm glad they didn't puke all over the carpet! I would have suggested turning the fan on low for starters.
