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!

Overheard conversation...

My friend overheard the following conversation this weekend between her son and my son. They were quite serious, sincere, and thoughtful:

Her boy: Can you teach me some karate moves?


My boy: Do you promise not to use them on someone else?

Long pause. My friend catches a glimpse of her son's face. Pensive, wheels are turning, semi-distressed look on his face. (He has a twin sister...)

Her boy: No.
My boy: Then no, I can't teach you. (The ways of the ninja must wait another day)
Her boy: Okay.

Conversation over, boys move on to Transformers and Star Wars.
