I am privileged to be the mom of four sons and one little girl, so it’s a pretty boy-heavy environment around here! I never imagined that I would be the mom of so many sons, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. They certainly keep life exciting! Do you have sons? See if you can relate to any of these things we find ourselves saying…
What are you doing up there? It’s sounds like someone is going to come through the ceiling!
I am not going to ask you again to stop wrestling!
Let’s leave these sticks at the park. We have enough at home already.
Please do not make your sister’s baby doll the prisoner. And don’t pretend to cook her in the play kitchen either!
Football is not an indoor game.
We just ate! How can you be hungry AGAIN?
Yes, you need a clean pair of socks every day.
Bearded dragon skin in a baggie on my refrigerator, waiting to be taken to the nature exhibit at the zoo. This is normal home decor, right?
No, you cannot jump from the top bunk, even if you are landing in a pile of pillows! I know you “won’t get hurt,” but let’s save this for the trampoline park, ok?
I found these Legos in the bottom of the washer. Whose are they?
How long has this bathroom been out of soap and shampoo? Why didn’t you say anything? What exactly have you been using?
Wow! What a lovely snake skin/pet frog/cockroach/etc.!
If there was already a ball and a frisbee stuck on the roof, you really should have stopped to think before throwing the football up there too…
No lightsabers at the dinner table, please!
UPDATE: The comments on this post have been hysterical, both here and on Facebook! I just have to add my two favorites, because I DO say these all the time!
Don’t hurt yourself because I don’t have time to spend the evening at the emergency room!
Why are you so dirty???
Now it’s your turn! What do you hear yourself saying to your boys?
