Out of The Mouths of


Hi mommas!  I’m excited to start this little link up to share some of the crazy things I find myself saying now that I’m a momma.  I hope you’ll join in by linking up your own post here OR by tweeting, instagramming, facebooking, other social media-ing the ridiculous things you say with the hashtag #ootmom.  I’m hoping this will just be a fun way to laugh at ourselves (and each other) as we do this motherhood thing.

Tentative plan is to do this on the first of the month, every month.  SO – you have plenty of time to make notes for next time.

Shall we start? Yes. Yes we shall.  Without further ado, my #ootmom moments, without context.  Enjoy:

“G, pants are not optional. They are required.  They are your friend. Pants are our friends! We love pants. Pantsy pants pants.  Look! Mommy wears pants! Pants are THE COOLEST EVER.  Please. Let. Me. Put. On. Your. Pants.”

“Thank you for not putting your toothbrush in the potty. That was a good choice.”

“Please get your hand out of mommy’s shirt. Mommy doesn’t like when you stick your hand down her shirt. Especially at the grocery store.”

“Don’t put your foot in it don’t put your foot in it…you did it. You put your foot in your diaper.”

“I don’t think it’s a good idea to put the entire tortilla in your mouth honey. You have to chew. Chewing is key.”

“Please don’t eat my hair.  My hair is not a snack.”

“Oh. You found that book we’ve read 800 times today.  How did you get that out from under the couch?”

“G, if you want me to read to you you cannot shove the book in my face. I cannot see it if it’s pressed up against my nose.”

“Please don’t sit on my head. That’s not kind.”

“Is that mulch in your mouth? Mommy doesn’t know how to grow edible things so we don’t taste-test the garden.”

    Avoiding my own own blog (not) work to comment, Loved this link up! Thanks for including me. Kids are ridiculous aren’t they? Just today I asked lulu not to dip her toy into the dogs very dirty water dish and then LICK IT. She tried to lick dog drool. I can’t even.
