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!

"You sing while I button your pants."
Now this would be a bizarre thing for anyone to say but coming from my hubby made it all the more interesting. You have to understand, on the outside my husband looks pretty serious - he's tall, he teaches math, he works out, he rock climbs, he works on the house and cars, he loves technology, he's quite intelligent and looks at life logically. So sometimes when I hear some of the stuff that comes out of his mouth it makes me pause and, usually, cracks me up. And this time was no different. I wasn't even in the room but I had heard some singing, then silence, then the above statement, then more singing. I don't even know why, after all the years, but I'm still surprised by how matter-of-fact he can be. That guy makes me laugh on a regular basis but I think what I find most hilarious (and endearing) is how he speaks to our children.
