Say it Again Mom

Say it Again Mom

When will my children realize that if they only listened to me the first time I told them to do something, life would be SO MUCH SIMPLER…for all of us!  There have been so many times that I wish I could record myself telling my kids something because I feel like I repeat it over and over and over.

A few things that I wish I could put on repeat to automatically play these days are:

  • “Don’t hang on the gate” (Meaning the baby gate blocking off our kitchen.  I say this at least 10 times a day!)
  • “Your shoes don’t belong on the floor in the middle of the entryway.”
  • “Who forgot to flush the toilet?!”
  • “Mommy doesn’t need any help going to the bathroom” (I swear, me going to use the restroom must send an automatic signal for all three of my kids to join me in the bathroom!”)

I recently asked a few mom friends to join in my misery and share some of the things they find themselves repeating over and over ALL THE TIME.  The result was hilarious and heartwarming all at the same time.  I hope you enjoy!  Also, be sure to check out their blogs.  You will find a lot of great ideas and support on all topics mom related!
