Things My Children Make Me Say

These faces.
Or really, things children in general make parents in general say.  I know it shouldn't have been, but one of the biggest shocks in parenting is realizing how much your kids don't know.  It's a hard thing to acknowledge that your kids have Zero common sense when they're born.  They have to be taught everything.  I'm sure I should have known this before I had children, but it's one of those things I've had to come to terms with.  It's hard not to grow impatient with them when they do the foolish things, but instead realize that maybe you've never actually told them that sucking on the business end of scissors is a bad idea.

Some of the words that have come out of our mouths are:

Please don't lick the bathtub.

Please don't lick me.

Please don't lick the bottom of that shoe.

Get your face away from your sister's butt.

Let me smell your hands.

You should put some food in your mouth, chew it, swallow, and then do it all over again.  This is how we eat.

Please don't eat trash.

It truly is amazing that our species has survived, since we've all started out as children.

  1. LOL! So true! Love this. I'm convicted also that I often expect my kids to know things that children, well, just don't know!
