My daughter is 14 months now and developing into a person, someone with a unique personality, quirks, a sense of humour, and a tiny itty bitty attitude.
I have no idea where she gets that from.
Recently I’ve noticed that I’ve been saying things to her that I never thought I would hear myself say.
Things that only others parents can relate to.
“Stop waving the spatula at the cat! That’s not how you make friends!”
“Just let me pick your nose and then you can watch Mickey Mouse.”
“Please stop mashing banana into your hair.”
“The chair is not to be chewed on, nor is the deck, go find something else to put in your mouth.”
“Really? Are you that hungry? Do we starve you? Please stop eating the deck.”
“You don’t have to scream and pull on your hair like a lunatic, I will take you pig tails out, even though they look super cute and without them you look like you’ve been through a windstorm.”
“Please don’t lick the garbage can.”
“Any and all cat food that is in your mouth should be put into mommy’s hands immediately!”
“No thank you, I’m stuffed and half chewed hot dog isn’t really that appealing.”
“Hands out of your poop!!”
“Mommy’s going to have a bath alone tonight because you pee in the water.”
“Hey! Face OUT of the Cat dish!”
“No, we don’t eat ants, dirt, or rocks!”
“Whatever, eat the dandelion, yaaaahhh, mmmmm.”
“I’ve asked you twice today to stay out of that cat food! Show me how many pieces you have in your mouth!”
I know you’ve all said these or a variation of these things to your children!
