Things Moms Don’t Say

By Alli Worthington |

When you live with small children, you quickly hear yourself say things that just. don’t. make. sense. Things like “You can’t take your ukulele in the bathtub.”

Every mom has her own repertoire of crazy quotes, but do we all have things we just don’t say?

Do you ever say this…?














What about this?














Are you the only one who loves to blow up eleventy-billion balloons?

If you have older kids and teens, you will love the pictures with my oldest guy in the slideshow below. Enjoy!

Things you will never hear your Mother say.

Sure, the Internet is safe.

    Hahahaha! Thanks for the Friday laugh! As I’m reading this my kids are screaming in the background I asked why and my oldest said “Well, I ran over my brother. But just a little.” Oh. Well if it was just a little…that’s ok then. Are mom’s supposed to say that??

    The one about the chores and phones and tattoos…DUDE. So there. Just substitute tattoo for “currently popular brand name (read: ridiculously expensive) clothing item of the moment”. #sigh
