Since Noah and I are away on vacation, thought I’d post another edition of You said WHAT to your kid? 

On SDL’s Facebook page awhile back, I posted a simple question. “What is something you’ve found yourself saying to a child that you never thought you would?” The answers that came in (and have come in since) have had me rolling on the floor ever since. Here are a few of them for your uninhibited laughing pleasure, all as innocent as the moments that made them.

  • I brought you into this world, I can take you out!
  • Honey, don’t put your crayons in the peanut butter.
  • Spit out that dog food!
  • We don’t paint with our noses!
  • Is it really necessary for you to bring your ice cream in the bathroom with you while you poop?
  • Stop putting the cat in the shower!
  • Son: Mom, soda just came out my nose! Me: Was it Coke or Sprite? Son: Sprite! Me: Here’s a napkin. You’ll be fine. Coke hurts worse.
  • Don’t drink the bathwater!
  • Please stop licking your sisters toes!
  • Stop peeing on each other!
  • Son, we don’t bite goats!
  • The toilet brush is for the toilet, NOT your butt!
  • Stop putting syrup on the cat.
  • Yes you can have batman fighting a dinosaur on your birthday cake.
  • No, you can’t make butter out of breast milk.
  • No, I don’t think we can give Jesus a taco.
  • Please get your lips off of that plane propeller.
  • Please take your penis out of that jar.
  • Your fork is not to be used as a weapon!
  • Stop picking your sister’s nose!
  • Izzy, no! Don’t try and stick your finger in the cat’s behind!
  • I don’t care if you kill each other, just do it quietly!
  • You were NOT an accident! You were a surprise.
  • If you have two more bites of your vegetables, then I’ll let you turn the light on and off again.
  • Who pooped on the window sill?
  • We do not use our poop for finger paint!
  • This is not a Monarchy, it’s a MOMarchy. I’m the Queen here, you are my subject. Got it?
  • Would you please not pee in the front yard?
  • You don’t drink your own pee, honey! Yuck yucky YUCK!
  • Conversation with my 5 year old this past Christmas: Son: Does Santa see everything I do? Mom: Yes Son: Does Santa watch me poop? Mom:  . . .  Yes. So make sure you do a good job wiping.
  • After hopping out of the tub wearing nothing but bubbles, my 4 yr old son snuck up behind me, snatched a piece of cooked bacon & placed it neatly in his butt crack! I never thought I’d ever have to tell my kid that he shouldn’t put meat in his butt!
  • Don’t lick the trash can!
  • It is not nice to drop the toilet seat on your brother’s weenie.
  • It’s time to put the weapons away.
  • No drinking out of the bidet!
  • Don’t step on your brother’s head!
  • Must you get naked EVERY time you poop, and on ANY toilet?
  • Please try not to fart on our guests.
  • Honey, only the CATS get to pee in the litter box.
  • We don’t feed poop to your baby brother.
  • We’ve read a lot today, why don’t you go choose a movie?
  • Chap stick does not go on your butt.
  • Stop running! You have poop hanging from your butt!
  • Do not mop the floor with your brother.
  • Please don’t hide rocks in Daddy’s pillow.
  • Get your naked butt off your brother’s face! I don’t care if he did it to you first!
  • Yes you are a princess, but I’m the queen so you still have to listen to me!

If you didn’t get a chance to answer, comment below and tell us what you’ve found yourself saying to a child that you never thought you would! I may just use it in a future installment! Also, be sure to check out all the past editions of You Said WHAT to Your Kid?
