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!"

"are you sure you dont want to stay home from school today?"

(we let our teens decide whether or not they feel up to go to school when they have colds)

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!

I pray for the day Family Court recognizes that CHILDREN have rights, parents only have PRIVILEGES.  Only then, will I know my child is safe.

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

You're going to lose your balls for today if you don't stop throwing them (over the fence). ..

(said to my toddler boys - dh was driving up right as I was yelling that and he couldn't stop laughing. . .took me a minute to realize what was so funny. . .)

I said almost the same thing to my son, about a year ago. The look of shock on his face, hearing his Mom talk about "his balls". It too him a minute to figure out what I had meant, and me a minute to figure out what he'd thought I'd meant!

I pray for the day Family Court recognizes that CHILDREN have rights, parents only have PRIVILEGES.  Only then, will I know my child is safe.

to my 14yo DS last night at Halloween, dressed up like a woman: That skirt is way to revealing and when did you get that much cleavage.

OMG never ever ever ever say this it is the worse thing ever : my mom learned the hard way that she should of never said this to me. she never thought that i would grow up to be stuck to her like glue and live so close to her that i would see her everyday. i bug her saying that i bet she wishes she could go back in time and never say that to me oh ya trust me my dd and my ds are just like me. bad, smart and creative all in one but bad dont even come close
