10 Phrases Toddler Moms Dread

By Danielle |

We all have those words and phrases our kids know that we absolutely hate. Not because they are bad words… but because they are downright annoying, embarrassing, and of course clever.

Lately in our house these include the overused… no.

Everything is answered with no.

Ben did you poop?  No…
But you smell like poop Ben… No
Do you need a new diaper… No
Do you want to have dinner…No
Do you love Mommy… No
What about Daddy… No

Everything is no… and that alone is something that could drive any sane person mad!

So I asked my readers what phrases they had in their house, and out in public that embarrass them, or that they just downright hate, and I got a couple really great replies, and mixed them with my personal list… to bring you…

The top 10 words, and phrases we wish our kids did NOT have in our vocabulary!

    You forgot “I WANT FRENCH FRIES” it only takes one fry and they are addicted, and yet they only ask for them in a front of a large group of people, and usually at places such as the gym…

    OMG. The other day i’m walking the kids to school waiting to cross the street & this car is blaring ” i’m sexy and I know it” . The 5 year old starts shaking her booty and singing it as loud as she can. Was one off those embarrassing yet trying not to laugh moments.

    I get the angry birds all the time, I just tell her they are sleeping. I also have been told to go at a red light, to hit a deer (yes like Bambi), her song is a a combo of Jesus loves me with red solo cup.
