LOL!! 

 I know I used # 2, 4, 6, and 10 today alone, plus 1 and 5 yesterday.  I think #4 is my most repetitive though (well, besides 10!)

 If you haven't been there yet; you will without a doubt use atleast 2 of these, but probably more.

Oh, yea.  Now that #5 is one of my least favorite, and why #2 above is so important in my house as hands in the pants, equal hands smelling like poo.  Really, why does he need to do that?!

 I use 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, every single day. I think I am going to voice record it and just playback. They need to add: Because momma said so.

In our house there's also a lot of:

1. take a bite - or he would never eat!

2. his name, repeated several times between short pauses until he finally acknowledges I want his attention

3. please put your cars in your room - as they are lined up in perfectly spaced increments and spread out ALL over the house!

Id like to add "please take a break from your homework to go (jump on trampoline, run around, hang upside down.. Or whatever sensory input your child craves/needs during non focusing times). 

And "please put this gum in your mouth and chew gum!" No other parent I know insists their kids chew gum as its effects are proven to help stimulate focus as well.. And increase oral motor awareness and build muscle. All those teachers from the 70s who made kids put their gum on their nose and then had problems with them concentrating.. Ha!
