not me monday...on tuesday

As described my MckMama at "mycharmingkids.net". "Are you feeling guilty for eating all the M&M's that you said you bought for the kids? Hope that no one saw when you wiped your child's nose on their own shirt? Overcome with embarrassment when you lost your toddler in your own home while your neighbor was over? We'll don't be! Not Me! Monday was born out of my desire to admit some of my imperfections and reveal a few moments I'd rather forget. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing!"

Kids say the darndest things, but what about Moms? I'd say we rank right up there. These are a few of the "did I really just have to say that?" moments I've had here lately.

"We don't give purple nurples, especially not at Target. Well then I'll tell Daddy he shouldn't give purple nurples either."

"Get your finger out of your nose, it's ucky. No, I don't want your finger in my nose either."

"Stop chasing your brother with the tongs. I'm very sorry he hit you with the spatula, but hand over the tongs."

"Get your spoon out of your undies. No, now you need a clean one. And go wash your hands!"

"Do you want me to dump water on your head....then don't do it to your brother!"

"Hands do not belong in the toilet."

So there you have it....I never thought I would have to address giving purple nurples in Target, but having kids always brings surprises! Now it's your turn...what have you done or said this week that made you think "Did I really just have to say that?!" 


  1. Purple Nurples in Target... I just about peed myself! Jaxon calls my "bubbies" elbows! He told me the other day (in the privacy of our own home, thank God) that he really likes my elbows, "they are really pretty elbows Mommy!" Oh well, at least he doesn't call 'em boobies, I can see him in Target now professing his love for them in the checkout line!!!

  2. Haha! That is hilarious...I think I might take Jaxon's code word. :-) At least if he does say how much he loves your elbows no one will know what he's talking about! Where do they come up with this stuff?!

    Landon calls all bras "boobs". One other Target embarassment was when they had just put out all the new bathing suits in front. Landon saw them and said "Hey Mom, look at all the boobs, do you need some new boobs?" I just about died....well yes, Landon, yes I do. Thanks for asking!

  3. My most recent was "Thank you for throwing the wet/yucky diaper away. Next time, lets throw it in the trash - not in the toilet. But good idea..."

  4. Hilarious and btw I love your blog. I know I've said some off things too, but I can only recall this morning.

    "No, we don't put boogies on our banana."
    "Quit taking it off, it is NOT a game!"

  5. I've had to fish a diaper out of the toilet, too. Beyond yuck! They're so helpful!

    Haha, I loved "We don't put boogies on our banana." Too funny!!!
