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!

"Don't use the spoon on the ladybug, okay?"

I believe this one is pretty self-explanatory. You know the scene:

Child 1 has pet ladybug in self-made container mimicking bug's home environment. Talks to bug, plays with it, then notices it's not moving. Slight panic ensues. Child 2 excitedly exclaims, "I'll help you!" and runs to find an object with which to prod bug. Mother silently observes entire plight but gives that one objection. As child 2 disappointedly says, "Aw man," child 1 happily cries out,"She's moving! She's alive!" A celebration ensues and relief fills the air.

Sound familiar??
