On SDL’s Facebook page, 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 have had me rolling on the floor ever since. Here are a few of them for your uninhibited laughing pleasure.

  • I won’t always be able to hold your hand while you poop.
  • Stop biting the dog or I’ll let it bite you back.
  • Don’t use a screwdriver to pick your nose!
  • Why did you color your pee-pee with a blue Sharpie?
  • Don’t put your nose in the toaster!
  • Your bum probably hurts because you ate too much chocolate.
  • Tables are for glasses, not for children’s asses.
  • No tattling until there’s blood involved.
  • Please get the Curious George book out from between your butt cheeks.
  • Did you really just hammer nails through the back of the couch?!
  • When you fall, I’m gonna be laughing too hard to call 911.
  • It is NOT funny to show all the other kids your poop.
  • How many times have I asked you to stop sticking you finger in my butt?
  • Where did you get those wire strippers and why did you cut the cord to the christmas tree?
  • What do you need a hatchet for? You’re seven!
  • No poopies in the tub… only in the toilet.
  • Do not play tug of war with the dog using your teeth.
  • No, buddy. We don’t drink out of the potty.”
  • Quit pulling on the dog’s nipples!
  • Stop eating the tampons!
  • I thought I told you to stop touching his winkie!
  • We don’t use our spit to wash the windows.
  • Don’t eat the dog food, you already brushed your teeth.
  • WHY did you give yourself a swirlie?!
  • I know it looks like boys pee out of their belly button, but…
  • Stop kicking the chandelier.

  • You can play with your food as soon as you eat all your toys!
  • Take the turtle out of your underwear! NOW!
  • You’re gonna have to wear something besides gloves and shoes.
  • Don’t lick the inside of your sister’s nose.
  • Do NOT put your naked butt on your sister’s face! I don’t care if it’s clean!
  • Your pee-pee does not need glitter.
  • Oh that? It is just a truck that plays music for you. It always comes out in the summer.
  • Sweetie, ‘Alcohol’ isn’t the best name for your new bear…
  • It’s not funny to pee in Nana’s heating vents.
  • Get the dog’s tail out of your mouth!
  • Getting hair in your mouth is just what happens when you eat off the floor!
  • Of course my boobs are funny looking. Every grandma has funny looking boobs.
  • Great job wiping your bum, way less poop stains this week!
  • All right. Who wrapped the dog in duct tape?
  • It’s not nice to kick babies.
  • Go wash the poop off your hands before you stick them in my mouth, please!
  • Why are there butt marks on my scanner?

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! If you missed it, be sure to read the other You Said WHAT to Your Kid? posts. They’re all pretty awesome.
