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!

"No, you can't eat poop."
My husband's cousin tries to explain why his 2 year old daughter would ask people if she can eat poop. He says something about her always wanting to see her diaper after he changes her and that he once joked to her about why she would want to and that he may have asked her if she wanted to eat it or something. Not sure exactly but there we were, on the back porch in Florida, and she's going around asking anyone who'll listen, "Can I eat poop? Can I eat it?" So my youngest hears this and in his sweet little voice he says a bit loudly and almost singing, "Noooo, we can't eat poooop." It's almost as if he's wondered the same thing himself...
