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!

"Just eat the cheese. I don't like what you're doing to it."

We've been camping all weekend and yesterday at lunch time we were sitting in the camper having lunch. My daughter had taken her turkey and cheese sandwich apart and was nibbling on the turkey, then the cheese. But then I guess she got bored with the whole 'chewing' thing and resorted to licking her cheese and admiring her work. I happened to look over when she was doing this and, instead of the usual "don't lick..." comment I've been so accustomed to uttering since having children, I thought I would change things up a bit. But as I started to speak and look at her actions I got a bit disgusted. So instead of saying something profound and moving I just muttered those words and looked away. She, however, thought nothing strange of her actions, meekly and confusedly asked "What? Why?," then reluctantly acquiesced.

Happy Mother's Day to all!!
