Have you ever had to say something to your kids that you never thought would ever come out of your mouth. One of mine was "Get the kitten's head out of your mouth!" When my oldest was 5, our cat had a litter of kittens and my daughter discovered that if you put the 3 day old kitten's head in your mouth it squeaked! Another time it was "Don't lick the shopping cart!" Am I the only one with weird kids?!

We're in our potty training phase with our 2.5 year old daughter. When asked if she's pooping, she says, "Me work (to) do, Mommy. No talk (to) me. Me fine!" At least she knows she need to concentrate when she's doing that...

Mine isnt neccessarily funny, my daughter is only 10 week old but i find myself asking her questions that she so obviously cannot reply to and i am sure all you other mums have done the same. I seem to go a step further and continue asking her the question and my partner always says do you really think she is going to reply to that. i just cant help it.

The shopping cart is Not a teether!

When you throw something on the floor it its not and "uh-Oh" (he's 1 y/o and says this anytime something falls/drops/or is thrown where it shouldnt go)

The power button is NOT a toy (He thinks its funny to turn off the computer while I'm on it)

No Hunny, You dont need to share that with Tristan (Other baby at his daycare)

I'm glad you're learning to share but I really wish you wouldn't

Mommy wants to stay decent in the store! (He now pulls down my top when he's in the shopping cart and wants my attention, I bought cute bras just because of this) (OH! and he was never breastfed so no exscuse!)

Do NOT bit the dogs nose!

The dog does not need to lick inside your mouth!

Dont drop that here! There isnt a doggie to clean up after you!

Stop staring at the other people (in the restraunt) they are not going to share their food with you

LOL! Glad to see I'm not alone!

"My bra is not your personal backpack" I carried my youngest everywhere and he would store all of his "stuff" in the front of my shirt - candy, toys, binky.....

"You have to clean your butt or the bugs will find you" Usually, said when they refused to take a bath.

"Don't play with that (his winkie), you'll break it - and, then what?"

"Put that apple down - you have to finish your dinner" Then, realized that the apple was WAY more healthy than the dinner!

There are so many! We could all write the funniest book!

No! I have had similar things happen with my kids. I had one similar to yours. I had to tell my daughter not to lick the cat. She licks everything! She's almost 3 and she will walk up behind you and lick you when you get out of the shower and then run away giggling. What's up with that?! Ever had to tell your kid not to stick his for up his nose? Why did that seem like a good idea?

My son thinks that a band aid means something is broken- well he went to his 18 month check up and they gave him all of his shots. The nurse put two band aids on(one on each leg) and told him he was good to go. Jay stood up on the table and looked down at his legs and said "mom me broke" The nurse and I were laughing so hard. The next day we were driving down the road and he was yelling non stop so I yelled to him to stop screaming.. he did and what he said about made me pull over because I was laughing too hard. He looked at me and said "say peas" as I always do to him when he wants me to do something.

Some of the funniest things I have seen/ heard around my son

" we don't hit" than my sister hit my son's arm-- I about fell over laughing
" Really I am going to have to stop this car and leave you on the side of the road for the next person who wants a kid" My son was being so bad
" Why don't you eat?" his response "eat?" Me "no we are not eating now"
"Stop eating the candle wax.. or the wicks.. come on man that's gross" He just laughed at me.
The dog is not a couch.. or a horse.. get off him now.. don't try to pull his tongue.

I am drawing a blank for the crazy things I have said, I am sure there have been some over the past 12 years! I do remember one thing that wasn't really strange until my 3 y/o daughter responded and then I realized how it had sounded to her! While eating dinner one night I was reprimanding my middle daughter and my 3 y/o decided to chime in and "be the mommy too". I said, "you be quiet and eat yourself". To which she responded, "mommy, I can't eat myself"! Needless to say my husband and I were fighting to keep a straight face! :D

Peas DO NOT go in your ear!

Don't touch that, it's dirty! You're gonna get scurvy!

Stop that, it's just wrong to motorboat your own mother!

No, wedgies are not funny! Wanna see!

Stop sniffing the dog's butt. No I don't care if he sniffed yours first!

There's nothing under my dress that you need to see so get out of there.

No I will NOT buy you a bra. (to my son)

Let the cat out of the toilet! And if he scratches you, you deserve it!

Lol! The wedgie one!
I told my sons that boys have penises, and girls were boys that got wedgies too hard, so they had to stop giving wedgies that ripped underwear or they'd turn each other into girls.

okay so i may be the only one ever to use this as a motivational tool. my oldest daughter, hannah, was about 4 yrs old, and hated when she got a wedgie, so whenever she didnt listen to me, i told her "if you dont do what i say, i will give you a wedgie. it always worked.

Well I can't remember any of the crazy things I've said to my son and I don't think I want to remember, because I remember stopping and thinking "did I really just say that?"



What I will always remember is what my aunt told me in high school,



"You're GROUNDED!!! Go to the MALL!!!!!"

(I liked my room, loved music & books, didn't talk on the phone and rarely watched tv.)



That was one of the BEST punishments I ever had, I went to the mall, the movies, the arcade, the bookstore AND the library.

Ohh too many.. My daughter is a classic.



Quote..' Ellie please stop chewing your toe nails'



'Ellie, just because Jackson locked you out of the tennis court doesn't mean you are allowed to scale the net, swing your legs over the top and climb down the inside of the court!'



'Ellie in this restaurant I don't want to find you under the table eating chewing gum that someone has left under the table' .. (this one was a fair while ago)



' Ellie, unless your bleeding out your eye balls your not having another day off school'



' Jackson and Ellie, I've discovered that your hiding your lunch box at school and telling the canteen staff that mummy doesn't feed you in order to get a canteen food! Well... I've just been going through the photo album and have pulled out a picture of both of you. If I hear of this happening again, these pictures will be discreetely placed on the canteen wall next to a sign saying ' please ring mum before giving canteen pass to these children.

These are TOO funny! It gave me quite a laugh at the end of a few rough days!

My favorites that I've had to say to my son is : "No tonguing the window."
and "no licking the dog",
Also, "get your hand out of the toilet!"

And then of course, "No, I can feed myself,thank you", as he is trying to force food into my mouth
and "The dog can feed herself too." (when he was standing in front of the dog pushing food into her mouth as she was trying to get away)

I've also surprised myself at telling him he didn't HAVE to eat bread (or pasta, or cake, or whatever for carbs) if he didn't want to, and giving vegetables like broccoli, peas, or corn to him to make sure he will at least eat SOMETHING on his plate! ( he will almost always eat the veggies, raw or cooked, but we have had such a hard time convincing him to even TRY brownies, cookies, cake, bread, etc.)

If you don't stop acting like this, I'm going to feed you to that dog over there. Our puppy is not a hat! Don't say hello then hang up the phone when it isn't for you! Don't eat the hand lotion.... no it isn't yummy. Starving kids all over the world would kill to be able to eat that so stop whining!
