Parents Say the Darndest Things
High on the list of things I never thought I would say to my four year old:

Do not lick the baby's head!

Yes, I really had to say that to Julian yesterday.

Current Mood: amused amused

I could entirely see Isaac licking a baby's head.

LOL, I suspect you may not be the first parent to say that. I have friends whose kids I can picture needing that kind of instruction.

How hard were you laughing after saying it?

But babies smell so good, you just *want* to lick them!

Babies smell SO good, and I love to smell their sweet heads. It's a fine line between inhaling the baby's yumminess and licking it.

Oh, I believe it. It's still funny!

isn't it amazing what we say in our house?

i've had to say "no, only mommy steps on your brother."

I just read an article on guidance and the author said they never thought they'd have to say "get your feet out of your sister's crackers". I say things every day like that... today, for example, I had to vow that I loved my husband more than grilled cheese.

But why CAN'T he lick the baby? Is it harmful?

I have a set of "10 plagues" finger puppets, to tell the story of Passover. My daughter (2 years old at the time) got into my Passover stuff and started playing with them.

"Sweetie, can you please put the plagues back? Those are mommy's plagues, it's not time to have plagues right now. You have boils? Yes, I see that. Can you put them back now? We'll have plagues later."

Then I stopped and thought "that has got to be the weirdest conversation I've ever had".

Just the other day, I caught myself yelling "Rivka, watch what you're doing! Get your monkey out of the butter!"

She was trying to carry the butter dish to the table, and carrying her stuffed animal at the same time.

considering that he goes to preschool and it's RSV season? Yes, it's harmful. Plus... EW!

A few weeks ago I had to say "Don't lick the dog!" to my 2 year old. I was on the phone at the time, thankfully with a good friend!
