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!

☺"Do you want to wait until you wet yourself?"☺

My cousin shared this thought-provoking question that she overheard yesterday at an Easter egg hunt. Here are the events leading up to this, as per my own imagination/experience:

Child is filled with excitement for the upcoming egg hunt. Parent observes said child possibly jumping up and down, squirming around, anxiously anticipating the go ahead to begin the hunt. Parent asks child repeatedly if he/she needs to use the bathroom. Child says no time after time. After a bit more observation, parent clearly knows that what could have been mere excitement is truly the urge to pee. One last ditch effort is made by parent to escort child to facilities. Upon rejection, frustrated parent resorts to throwing in the proverbial moist towelette and asks what, to some, is an unnatural question.

Do you think I was close?? What's your story?
