Things You Never Thought You'd Have To Say To Your Kids

Kids exceed our expectations of them every day and sometimes you have to say things to them that you never thought you'd have to. Here are a few examples.

From a mother on a movie: "Ben, bologna is not for window washing"
From My Sister to My daughter: "Alice, quit eating the dog food."
From Me to my daughter: "Alice, don't put peas up your nose."
From My mother to my daughter: "Alice, please don't beat the alarm clock with your Barbie doll."
From me to my daughter: "Alice Renee Holliway, do not chew on the dog."
From Me to my daughter: "Alice, do not lick the dog!"
From My father to my daughter: "Grandpa want's to take a nap. For this to happen, you need to be asleep too."

What are some things that you never thought you'd have to say to your kids?

  • LOL GrnEyedGrandma, that is hilarious! I hope your neighbors didn't see those "stickers". My ds once asked when he was 5 if they were diapers while watching a commercial for them.

  • When I took my daughter to the zoo, I actually remember saying, "Alice, you cannot climb into the cage with the monkeys!"

  • I caught Alice drawing on my collie's belly. That shows what a good dog Maggie is. She didn't even flinch.
