The things that will never make it in the baby books and other musings from a stay at home mom

Ten things I never thought I'd say to my children (all of which have come out of my mouth in the past 12 hours)

1. I do not want to hear you say another word. Ever.

2. No, you DON'T need to go potty again.

3. What do you say?

4. If you're going to keep crying and whining, please go do it in the other room.

5. Let's eat dinner outside tonight! (Yes, I know that this one sounds good. Trust me when I tell you that what followed wasn't.)

6. Use your words.

7. I will give you candy if you finish your dinner.

8. If you ask me again, there will be serious consequences.

9. Please stop. Mommy just... can't.

10. Because I'm the grownup, that's why.

And I thought I was the only mom who used #9.

I hope yesterday was a bit better, and that you get some time to yourself this weekend :)

"Please stop. Mommy just... can't."

Had to LOL... thought I was the only one who said that!

Yeah, me too. I've said most of these many times over, I must admit. Hope that Paul's return brought back some of your sanity and that you got a break or two over the weekend!
