The Top Ten Things I Shouldn’t Have To Say To My Kids (But Still Do)

25 May

In no particular order here are things that I actually say to my boys on a fairly regular basis.

Things I shouldn't have to say

Don’t let these sweet faces fool you, I have to say these all the time. Boys are GROSS!

  1. Don’t pull the cat’s fur out. She’s getting older and she’s not a big fan of that. 
  2. Don’t eat your toenails. Ya like that one don’t you?
  3. Did you remember to wipe your butt? I wonder when I’ll get to stop doing the secondary “clean up”?
  4. Get out of the litter box. Totally gross! I don’t understand the draw to where the cat poops. 
  5. Close your mouth when you kiss me. How does my three year old even know about tongue?
  6. Get your dirty socks of the kitchen table. Boys are so disgusting.
  7. Don’t lick: Why oh why do they insist upon upon tasting everything? 
    1. That sign
    2. The windows
    3. The cat
    4. Your brother
    5. The wall
    6. That pole
  8. Make sure you rinse the shampoo out. One would think that after six years we’d have that bathing thing down pat. 
  9. Get that wire off from around your neck. Seriously? SERIOUSLY?
  10. Stop playing with your penis. That obsession starts young doesn’t it?

What are some of the things you never thought you’d have to say to your kids that you now find yourself saying almost daily?

He's only 16 months, so he doesn't really get it yet, but I'm always saying... "Don't blow your nose on that." "Stop playing with your willy." "Please don't pee on your toys."

Don't pee on your toys? I'm glad I've never had to say that one. What is it with boys and their "junk"?

it really is funny how similar boys can be. . .we get a lot of "keep your hands to yourself" "don't climb on each other" "this isn't the MLB it's the backyard". . .and the standards, "did you flush?" "wash your hands" "don't put your face on that" sigh. . .boys. . . Hillary

Too funny. I only have one boy, and I am constantly telling him to clip his nails and get a shower. (He is 12 - well past the licking stage, lol, but still gross sometimes!)

OMG! You have my sons down to a T! My youngest one is so obsessed with his penis, in an okay way, not something to worry about. But still, we don't whip those things out whenever we need something to do. Really! One of my recent favorites - no one smells anyone's butt!

Asking my boys if they flushed and if they washed their hands happens all day every day around our house. Seriously, how hard is it to remember that?
