It feels weird to hear my mother's words coming out of my own mouth.
I think they call it payback. (This might make my mother very happy).
There called Momisms, you know, things moms say.
And these are just a few of the things I say in a day:
Don't make me come up there (my children's rooms are upstairs, while mine is down and although I like to pretend they are clean, I randomly yell this up the stairs. The sound I hear is similar to a small herd of elephants).
Because I'm your mother that's why (well, I am).
This is why we can't have nice things (it's a surprise to get thru a day without hearing glass shatter in my house. Yet, I'm still shocked when things break. Clearly, I am slow.)
Be careful or you'll put an eye out (considering we spent the morning of my son's 7th birthday at the ER because he poked a remote control antenna into his eyeball, I think I'm allowed to use this expression without judgement).
There are dozens and dozens of momisms. I get them all, have said most of them and meant every word.
But there are other things I say on a regular basis that should probably be added to The Official List:
"Do not spit."
"Why are you naked?"
"No, you can't play a game on my iPhone"
"We do not spit."
"Please don't bark like a dog in my ear."
"Take the fight outside. Don't come back in unless you can get along or you're bleeding."
"If you spit again..."
What do you say everyday?
