This is a Tails week, which means that we have to go specifically with the topic - in this case, a list of ten things within the same category.
So here are 10 things that I wish my kids would stop saying:
- "Mooooooommmmmmm" in that whiny kind of voice. The one that grates on your nerves and makes you want to scream.
- "Abby/Hannah did *fill in the blank*!" I don't care. I really don't. As long as everyone is still breathing and there's no blood gushing anywhere, please spare me the accusations and details.
- "Come get Becca out of our room!" Well, that's why they have a safety gate on their doorway. If only they'd remember to use it.
- "I don't want to eat *fill in the blank*!" Those of you 'blessed' with picky children are right with me, I'm sure.
- "What are we having for dinner?" I spend all day dreading this question because I hear it over and over again from the time I pick the girls up at daycare until we get home, I manage to peruse the cupboards and see what we have, and then tell them what dinner will be. It's then that I'm usually subjected to #4.
- "Nooooo!" Whether accompanied by foot stomping, tears or a full-flung tantrum, I so wish they'd put just half the amount of energy into saying 'yes' one of these days...
- "That's mine!" Ron submitted this one and I'm tired of hearing it also. If it's yours, then put it away where nobody else can get it or please just stop complaining.
- "Can I have a treat?" I almost dread Halloween because I just know I'll hear this every day over and over again until the candy is gone. Which is one reason why Mommy
stealssneaks candy from their bags every year. Really, it is for their own good as well as my sanity. :)
- "I want to listen to *insert name of CD not currently playing in our van*!" Whatever we happen to be listening to, someone will decide that she wants something else. Or that she wants me to skip a song. Or go back to a song. Or all of the above.
- "Mommy, I love you!" Oh wait, that's not right... No - that one belongs on the list of Things I Never Want My Kids To Stop Saying. Because that's something I don't mind hearing again and again. As often as they want to tell me. Every 5 minutes would be nice. :)
