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!

"If you eat all your French fries, you can have an apple later."
Not the usual order of things but my son really loves him some apples! I was in a hurry and had gotten my kids some lunch at a drive thru but forgotten to request apples as the side dish so when my oldest opened up the bag and peered inside the first thing he asked was, "Where are the apples?" He was quite disappointed to see the fries. Sorry buddy. My daughter, on the other hand, was quite pleased with the substitution and muttered a 5 year old version of, "Score!"
