Welcome to Mommy (and Daddy) Lingo!

Hi and thanks for visiting this site. As a mother of 3 I've said some pretty odd stuff over these past 10 years and thought it would be fun to write a bunch of them down.

And now, with the encouragement of my brother, I'd like to share some of these unconventional, yet practical, phrases. Enjoy!

"Well, that's what happens when you put nailpolish on your face."

My youngest son was watching his older sister put on some nailpolish and must have thought, "Hey, if it looks good on the nails, it'll look even better on the face!" So he added a few light purple decorations to his adorable face and came to show me. We had a brief 'conversation' about where nailpolish goes and then he decided he wanted it off. Well, it had already dried and he was getting frustrated because it wouldn't just wipe off so he started crying. I then tried to help him get it off by picking at it. Now, that may sound a bit harsh but it was either that or nailpolish remover and I figured he already had enough chemicals on his face for one day. So, not surprisingly, he got upset at what I was doing and pushed my hand away so I, in turn, said the above words in the hopes that his 2-year-old mind would understand the consequences of his actions. Told him, huh?
