You Said WHAT to Your Kid?!

On SDL’s Facebook Page, I posted a simple question. “What is something you’ve found yourself saying to a child that you never thought you would?” The answers that came in have had me rolling on the floor ever since. Here are a few of them for your uninhibited laughing pleasure. Also, be sure to read the previous installments of You Said WHAT to your kid?

  • When we draw a picture of someone, it is not necessary to draw their peepees as well.
  • Boys! Take the frogs out of your mouths, put your swim trunks back on, and come inside for dinner!
  • Stop licking the coffee table and eat your breakfast!
  • Yes my boobies are big and soft. Yes they are good to use for pillows.
  • Me: “Did I say lay down quietly and go to sleep? Or did I say jump back and forth from each others’ beds until one of you falls off and cries??” 5 year old: “Um..I think it was the second one but I’m not sure.”
  • Stop licking the floor and get back in the tub!
  • Take your underwear out of your mouth and put it on.
  • Get your head out of the dog’s mouth.
  • No, you can’t eat the dead spider.
  • We don’t eat our friends!
  • Why is there poop on your face?
  • It’s probably not a good idea to lay in the dog’s bed after taking a shower!
  • Don’t let the dog put his tongue in your mouth!
  • Our peanut butter sandwiches do not go in the VCR.
  • NO! Urinal cakes are not for eating!
  • Do not lick your brothers bum!
  • We don’t chew on batteries.
  • We don’t use our poop to paint pictures.


  • You’re a girl, you pee sitting down.
  • Don’t let the kitty eat the food out of your mouth!
  • Stop putting your finger up your bum WHILE you poo.
  • New rule: we are not allowed to put rock collections in our underwear.
  • Stop eating the cat food!
  • Stop using my hair to blow your nose!
  • Throwing baseballs into the ceiling fans is never going to end well for anyone.
  • You… give me the gun! And you… give me the knife!
  • Don’t worry about your worms, it’s time for school!
  • Please don’t undress Mama in public.
  • Me: “Are you trying to make me crazy on purpose?” My son: “Well, mama, it’s half on accident half on purpose.”
  • Take those balls out of your pants and give them to your father.
  • Do not use Daddy’s toothbrush to clean the toilet!
  • Since the poop is already in your hand, go ahead and throw it in the potty.
  • You need to stop chewing on the kitchen cabinets.
  • We don’t write down everything we see in bathroom stalls!
  • Get your nose out of your sister’s butt.
  • Stop eating the dust bunnies.
  • Why does the dog have diaper ointment on her bum?
  • What you do in the bathroom is not show and tell.
  • And, today’s finale is a short story from Katharine: “We do not play in the snow naked!” My not quite five-year woke up an hour earlier than usual, saw that it had snowed, stripped down to nothing, ran down the stairs (thankfully that woke us up), opened the door (because one of his stupid parents forgot to lock it the night before) and went out to play. His defense was that I wouldn’t have let him play in the snow in his pajamas. When we finally got him back inside he hastily put on his boots, a hat and mittens (but nothing else), and ran back out. This time there was a bit of a delay in retrieval because we (husband and self) burst out laughing at the logic he used.

Gotta love those kidlets of ours. :)
