Things you never thought you'd hear yourself say:

You know how you have those moments in life when you hear words coming out of your mouth you never thought you'd ever hear? Particularly in parenting moments, but also other times... Here's a compilation that I hope to add to over the months :) Please add your own in the comments!

"No, Violet, don't lick the floor."

"Judah, you may not put the lawnmower in the pool."

"No, Violet, don't lick the car"

"The hilarious thing about Louis XVI is..."

"Honey, Lanolin is not for your hair."

"Son, you may not use your violin bow for a sword."

"I don't want to hear your opinion. I just want you to give me the right answer."

"No, Violet, don't lick Judah's boots."

"Honey, go put your underwear on and you may not get naked any more."

"No, son, don't lick that coat."

"Judah, no. Take the snake out of your snack."

LOL!! I hated it when my dad would say, "I know what you were thinking. I was a child once, too." Yup, I've said that to J.

You are so funny! Kids do give lots of material.

I would add, "Don't paint the walls with your toothbrush!"

Oh gosh! Yes, to painting the walls with manymany things! BTDT for sure!

Buckaroo, my dad used to say "In twenty years you'll understand..." to us all the time, and I totally say it to Sofi now!
