Things You Don’t Want to Hear Your Kids Say From the Other Room.

by Julie on November 19, 2013

I took a bit of a break from the blog recently. Did you notice?

I wanted to spend some time doing stuff with my kids (like I have a choice!), and I also wanted to try to focus on living in the present moment. That sounds hokey, but it’s something I don’t do enough these days. Also, school and other activities are keeping us pretty busy.

Additionally, I decorated the house for Christmas. Yes, I know it’s only November, but if I wait until later, it will be too late. In any case, I love the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas), and I say there are no rules about that stuff. I can put up my tree whenever I darn well want. It doesn’t mean that I’ve forgotten about Thanksgiving. I am extremely THANKFUL that I am able to start celebrating Christmas as early and as long as I please.

Whilst living in THE NOW amongst the heathen tribe, there were a few instances where I walked into a room just in time to prevent death and dismemberment.

She Couldn't Reach the Tape

I have also overheard a few phrases that, although somewhat benign in their actual wording, were quite frightening when I considered their possible context.

So, for your reading pleasure, I give you:

TYDWTHYKS

  • “Watch THIS!”
  • “Is that blood?”
  • “Is that chocolate? Let me taste it.”
  • “Stop! I think I hear Mom coming!”
  • “Where do we keep the fire extinguisher?”
  • “Maybe we can fix it before she comes back…”
  • “Don’t TOUCH IT.”
  • “EW!”
  • “Do we have a chainsaw?”
  • “Red RUM! Red RUM!”
  • “Mom said not to do that!”
  • “Ew. You ATE THAT?”
  • “Gross. Is there poop in that?”
  • “There’s no way you’ll make it all the way over there from the couch.”
  • “You better go change your pants.”
  • “I don’t think that’s playdoh.”

If you have kids, have you ever heard them say something that made your ears perk up?

This list made me smile. Kids!! The stuff they come up with. I’m trying to come up with something (my kids say plenty) but I’m coming up empty right now. I’m sure I will think of something later though! :)

It’s always “Oooooooopsie” in this sheepish voice. You NEVER want to hear that oops.

Haha, that’s a good one! “Oops” definitely demands immediate attention…
