15 things only parents say

Posted by   + Show Post


Last week, I told my son to finish his cheeseburger if he expected to eat dessert. I then laughed at the absurdity of having to finish a delicious, juicy burger before going on to chocolate. Oh, to be a child again. I find myself saying these things countless times a day: The things that would only make sense coming from a parent

Please take off your coat and act like you are here to stay, not just visiting. Also sit on your bottom while eating your supper, do not hover..you are not a hover craft.

Child: Mom I'm cold.

Me: Then put on a sweater.

Child: Then I will be too hot.

My Godson was about two-and-a-half and we were riding in a car with him, his parents, my husband and I. Out of absolutely nowhere my Godson asks his mother if he could bite her just once. She simply replied, "No, you may not bite be at all."
