Do I really have to say these things?

In my possibly obsessive clicking around through blogs I found a funny little linky being hosted by 18 Year to Life.

Things I can’t believe I have to say to my children

Just wait til your father gets home! (Never thought I’d say that.)

Clothes are not for playing catch with.

Don’t drink the bath water.

Stop shoving everything you can into the corners of your room!

Please get your face outta my butt.

I don‘t know if I should let you play with that screwdriver, so just be careful.

(After he nearly gouged his eye out) No, you cannot have the screwdriver back!

No, you can’t slip ‘n slide naked.

Go run amok, please!

The world is not ending cuz your tummy hurts.

Stop farting on your sister.

Don’t shoot your Mommy (with a Nerf gun).

As you can probably tell, I say most of these things to my son. Boys!

  1. I'm with you on the "Face out of my rear!" My daughter has discovered she gets quite a reaction (trust me, it's involuntary!) when she attacks me from behind. *pun intended* Thanks for the link-up!!

  2. LOL My boys all want to slip and slide naked. I'm tempted to let them, just once, b/c I think that would be enough for them.

  3. And here I thought I was the only one that had to explain that it's OK to drink water from the faucet (if you must...), but not the bathwater. EWWW!

    I'd like to echo Mrs. Lampshade and thank you for the linkup! Thanks for sharing your hilarious list!
