What is the most ridiculous thing you have had to say or explain to your child?

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.

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!

We have a very affectionate puppy and I had to keep telling DS that we can't give the puppy kisses like the puppy kisses us. Every time Ds tries to love on the pup he tries to lick him all over. -.-"

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. :(

I read this and my first thought was you had missed the point of the thread because this is almost an everyday statement in my house. I forgot how weird it was!

"Oh honey, let's Not make shoe soup!"

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.

"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.
