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!

"If you stopped playing with yourself maybe you could catch the ball."
True, I bet that would work nicely. You could just hear the frustration in my neighbor's voice as he said these words to his son. As a coach, he has to deal with a lot of strange behaviors from students and he's been doing it for so long that he's probably seen more than his fair share of weirdness. But there's something about your own child doing something that you'd probably let pass with someone else that just gets under your skin and you can't help but want them so badly to stop. So I totally understand where this statement came from. Nevermind the fact that it was our neighborhood kids playing basketball and his son is 6. I guess that just makes it funnier.
