Did I really just say that?

Sometimes things come out of my mouth addressed to the children and I can hardly believe my own ears. If I overheard someone else utter these sentences, I would probably be appalled and feel quite superior in my parenting style. I'm not even talking about swear words or threats. It is sheer scenario-specific stuff which, heard out of context, sounds quite awful. Here's a selection of my recent utterings.

 - Ah, don't eat out of the bin, love!
 - Did you just do a wee wee on The Flash? (the superhero in Lego form, not the cleaning product)
 - Sit down and eat your pizza (said to my 11 month old. In my defense it was delicious, healthy, homemede from scratch pizza).
 - Playmobil men do not belong in the loo!
 - Stay still so I can pick your nose (again, said to my 11 month old who has a cold and whose nose was blocked).
 - No, there is nothing else till you finish your Nutella (in response to my five year old asking for a banana half-way through the Nutella sandwich he begged for).
 - Toilet roll is not a scarf!
 - No, don't lick your shoes, pet!

In sharing this with you I am assuming that I am not the only parent who finds herself in these surreal situations. I really hope I am not wrong!

  1. No you're not wrong. Here it's mostly "Don't lick your sister's shoes" though! #TheList

    1. Why do they do these things? I'm very glad I am not alone in having to say these things :)

  2. Haha! I love the request for fruit being turned down until the Nutella is finished! I told my son today that he couldn't do drawing until his cbeebies programme was finished! How bad is that?! Your definitely not alone :)

    1. Oooh! That sounds bad, but I can totally understand it. We are not alone in this and that is good.

  3. I've said the pizza thing too. Also 'Don't lick my feet' and 'Don't snog the dog' are regular requests in my house at the moment.

    1. Ha ha, that is a good one too. My windows are filthy. Licking them would NOT be a good idea.
