My kids actually do some of these sometimes… They will come home from school and ask what extra chores they can do, or what I need done that I haven’t gotten to. The oldest will ask if I need her to babysit just so I can get a relaxing bath… Then they drop the bombshell they either want money or are trying to get out of trouble for something, lol.

My kids always say they have to wash their hands. Before and after they go. And they always ask to brush their teeth I have to tell them to wait until it’s the right time. The 3 older ones always tell me they love me and that I’m beautiful. And the older 2 keep asking to do the dishes.

My son is only 5 so I can assume it will get worse, but for now my favorite thing he really does say that I hope to God his sister picks up on is when we’re at the store and he asks for a toy, if I say “No, we can’t afford that”, he will say “Okay, I’ll get a job and get money so I can buy it.” Here even offers to buy me things with this job he will have when he sees me sighing at things while we shop. He’s my easy one though, his little sister throws huge fits that shocked me at first. Though now I know he’s my little prince and

I thought i was the only one who NEVER gets a minute in the bathroom, and if by some miracle i get the door closed all i hear is mommy mommy mommy i try staying really still sometimes it works on my 2yr old by the 15 yr says i know your in there, and she just keep right on talking, which of course invites the little one to say hey mommy whatcha doing? and the conference is on!

I get #25 from my daughter but I tend to run late. When I get dressed up I don't get Oh you look nice – I get Why are you dressed up? and suspicious looks. I used to get the line "I'm bored I'm going to scrub the toilet" alas that never happens anymore.

That just breaks my heart and want to buy it to her!!

Oh that’s a good one, not asking for thirds and fourths. My step son will ask for another serving before his first plate is even empty. Other people need to eat in this house too!

Renee 3 years ago

You described my son. And he’s like that about every thing – laid back. He never threw temper tantrums, even when he was a toddler. Now, he will try to negotiate these days. He wants to debate the terms and conditions (of things like bedtime) like a lawyer. That’s a new development, but much preferred over whining and pouting.

Btw, I don’t know how he got so laid back, he just came that way. He has two very high-strung, passionate parents. But somehow we wound up with little Buddha. I worry that our true tests in parenting lie ahead in the teenage years. It’s just been too easy up ’til now. The other shoe is sure to drop.

You never fail to come up with the funniest, but SO true posts. I still call my mom to look for my stuff and I have two kids of my own.

Jack 3 years ago

I might be biased, but I loved hearing this:

“Mom, I like spending time with dad because he isn’t mean and he makes food I like to eat.”

My son was around 4 or 5 when he said that, can’t quite remember. But I do remember that it didn’t go over so well. As a PSA to other men might I suggest not giggling about words to that effect while trying to convince your wife that time in the bedroom would be good for both of you.

For some odd reason things like that tend to kill her mood. Funny female libido, who understands it.

“I’ll feed the cat AND scoop his litter box. Remember I told you if you let me have a cat that I would always take care of him.”

Love it! Although my slightly neurotic 6 year old actually does say #25 – a lot!

I would add, “Wow, that outfit you picked out for me is perfect!”

Ha. Sounds lovely. Just this week, I got, “Mommy’s on the phone so let’s destroy our one-day-old couch with this stray sidewalk chalk I found,” which was followed up with, “Mommy’s on the phone again, so let’s pour our (supposed to be non-leaky) sippy cups of milk all over the one-day-old couch.” Longest Time Out of his life so far!
