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!

"Superman doesn't spit at his mommy."
I just said this and while I don't normally post twice in one day, this was totally relevant to this morning's post. My youngest (same little cutie flying around earlier) has begun spitting to express himself when he is angry or frustrated. Not the hock-a-loogie-with-the-throat-noise-and-actual-liquid-in-flight kind, but more of the na-na-na-na-na-na kind. Anyway, he and his sister were building a fort and something happened, he got upset and spit. This is an automatic time out so I picked him up and was carrying him upstairs - apparently in the Superman position - when he held one arm out in front and started making a whoosh noise. How did this turn into a free flight rapidly up the stairs? I wondered. So as I was setting him down I reminded him how it's not nice to spit and he was going to be in time out when, out of the blue (not really, I should have seen it coming), he aimed his ire at me. Now, I don't really know how Superman was with his mommy when he was 3, but I took a chance and made this assumption.
