Just today I said: "you can not eat food from the garbage"!
I was really disturbed by what happened but at the same time wanted to laugh when I heard myself say that.
"Don't worry, honey. He didn't really fall into a ring of fire. That's just his way of saying he fell in love."

OMG I said the EXACT same thing a few weeks back AFTER pinning my LO down and swiping my hand to the back of her throat to remove the moldy bean she was trying to swallow!

My older girls were 1 and 3, I actually said, "Girls, please stop licking the microwave." My DH said, "Did you ever think you would have to say that to anybody?" I don't remember what was in the microwave, evidently I was defrosting something yummy. I had to clean Baby-Tongue marks off it it.
I just had to tell mine a few days ago she can't eat out of the garbage. Especially wilted lettuce, it almost made me sick to see. :(

To my then 2 year old who was working in the garden with us. She was making "soup" in a bucket with water, dirt and whatever plants and twigs she could find. Then I noticed one foot was bare and while I was trying to figure out where it had gone she sat down, took he other shoe off, threw it in the muck and started stirring with a stick.
"Stay out of the washing machine, that's dangerous for little kids, DANGEROUS! .... Now pick up your sword and let's go.. " (It's plastic of course but I laughed at the way it must have sounded to anyone listening behind the door )
"We don't write letters to Santa on mattresses."
I thought this was especially funny given that our family doesn't "do" Santa and it's April. DS had a pen though and was scribbling a list to Santa right on to the mattress.
