Mama Kat's Writing Prompt 4

Write a list of 10 things you have said to your kids that other moms might not say.
  1.  "That's why I call you two Dr. Destructo and his evil sidekick."
  2. "We're taking a trip to Roswell next summer. I figure it's time to take you back to the mother ship."
  3. "Don't listen to your teacher. She can't even spell thought."
  4.  "When you bite into that Hello Kitty marshmallow, let's get the red food coloring, make it look like she's bleeding, take a picture of it, and post it on the internet." {Link}
  5. "If you get in trouble for wearing those pants to school because of that little hole in the leg, tell the principal if she doesn't like what you wear, she can buy your clothes. At least you aren't showing your underwear like those other boys."
  6. "So what if they call you a nerd. You just take after your mother."
  7. Damien: "Guess what we're doing in math class." Me: "Math"
  8. "No, I didn't take any drugs to act like this. I woke up this way!"
  9. Damien: "Oh, that's just a beetle. It's not a serious bug." Me: "Damien, what would be a serious bug, a bookworm?"
  10. Damien: "We sniff flowers because they smell pretty. Right?" Me: "Yeah." Damien: "The center of the flowers are the most fragrant parts, but they are also where the pollen comes from. And, the flower is the reproductive part of the plant. Right?" Me: "Yeah!" Damien: "So does that mean that when we sniff flowers, we are sniffing their genitals?" Me: [sarcastically] "Yeah, Damien, we sniff flowers genitals." Dyl: "Mom! That old lady behind you can hear you." Me: "Well, she has genitals too, Dyl."

  1. Thanks for the link to the Hello Kitty marshmallow. That visual just killed it, Ha!

    1. My pleasure. He got a kick out of that one.

  2. LOL on #10. My kids always worry that everyone around us can hear us. They would have killed me for that one. ;)

    1. Dylan used to not get embarrassed, then he turned into a teenager. Now, everything seems to embarrass him.
