25 Things Said By No Mom Ever


mom toddlers

As the mom of a toddler and an infant, there are a lot of things I say on a daily basis. "Please get down from there;" "No, we don't eat flowers;" and "Can you hand me a burp cloth?" are among them. There are other things, however, that neither I nor any mother in her right mind ever utter. Here, 25 things you'll never hear a mama say.  

1. "Any one else have a fantastic sleep last night?"

2. "I'm heading out for a few quick errands. Who wants to join?"

3. "No thanks, I'm going to pass on a glass of wine tonight."

4. "I'll take the white couches and the white duvet."

5. "I'm so happy you want kale for dinner tonight instead of macaroni and cheese."

6. "I can't wait until Junior stops taking naps."

7. "It's bed time already? Oh, man!" (frowny face)

8. "Nah, I don't need anything at the store."

9. "I'm thinking of giving up coffee."

10. "Let's go outside and do a snow dance so they cancel school tomorrow!"

11. "It's so quiet in here you could hear a pin drop."

12. "Why would anyone ever need a stain stick?"

13. "My car is spotless!"

14. "Ooh, it's 6 a.m. Let's go find your xylophone!"

15. "I'm just gonna sit down on the couch and finish my book."

16. "I trust you to not touch my computer/phone/any tech gadget."

17. "Five p.m. is always the most relaxing part of my day."

18. "I'm so glad I never have children's music stuck in my head -- that would be so annoying!"

19. "I think I'm going to sleep in tomorrow."

20. "Oh, there's that thing I was looking for!"

21. "Let's just bring a carry-on on our vacation."

22. "I'm really looking forward to the flight."

23. "The laundry basket's empty!"

24. "I'm just going to set this chocolate bar down on the counter."

25. "I'm bored."

What things never come out of your mouth?

Ut-Oh! I have said #10 every single winter. lol I love having my kids home on snowy days. It makes them happy to hear SCHOOL CANCELLED and their happiness is infectious for me and then I'm happy too. lol

I have said #15, it just doesn't happen. :)

I liked having the children come shopping with me. :)

The laundry basket's empty, I have said this one... true for about 5 minutes. :)

Something I would never say is "Sure, invite all of your friends over.  The more the merrier."

"Yes, you and your boyfriend can go up to your room.   And feel free to close the door."

I like having my girls come shopping with me, but they don't usually want to, unless it's only to buy things for them.   They do love to go on errands with their daddy.

Nah, I've said some of these.

As rare as snow days happen around here, I am more than happy when he gets one. It means I don't have to drag my butt out into the cold air, it means I get to sleep in. And yes, there are actually times when I do get bored. Sometimes I really don't need anything from the store (not that anyone ever offers to go for me--which is ok, I'd rather go myself). I don't drink wine, so yes, I would pass on an offer of it. :)

I like snow days, too.  The boys play outside and come in and get all warmed up and have hot cocoa with marshmallows. :)
