Say What?!

7 years ago

As children, didn't we all make a list of things we would never say when we grew up to become parents?  Things like, "Because I said so."  Well, I had a list.  And I may have kept to some of those things, but over the years I have found myself saying all kinds of crazy things that I could never have imagined coming up in normal conversation.  Things like:

Quit eating money.  We save pennies,  we don't swallow them!

I had thought that went without saying.  I was wrong. 

The toilet plunger is not a microphone.

But, if you almost close your eyes and let your eyesight blur, it does kind of resemble one.

Awesome.  I can sound just like Max AND Ruby!

After endless hours of watching Max and Ruby on Nick Jr. I found out that I could do a really good imitation of the little rabbits when reading aloud their Easter book to my son.

Please, don't pee on Grandma's head!

To long a story to get into.  I do have a picture of my naked baby boy sitting on my mom's shoulders, though.  She is laughing, but it all could have turned ugly in an instant.

The dingo took your koala bear.

O.k.  Not a dingo.  Just our dog and a stuffed animal.

And this is just a few years in.  Can't wait to see what crazy sayings the coming years bring!
