"No. Running your tongue around the outside of your mouth does not count as washing your face."
...and 4 other sentences I never thought I would have to say more than once as a parent.
There are days, especially now that my child is a bit older when I have to stop myself and ask... do I really need to say that... AGAIN?
Never mind that I had to say it once...
I don't know if it is common place in your home, but I feel like I am always surprising myself with the string of words that get put together in order to create a respectful, thoughtful and sweet child who will one day be an AMAZING adult.
"Yes, I wish you were a princess, too. That would make me a Queen, and someone else would have to do the dishes."
"Yes. You have to wear clean underwear."
"How could you possibly think it would have been "okay" to "decorate" my couch with chalk?" (chalk can be substituted with, crayon, marker, paint, glitter, glue...)
and the one that inspired this over-share Tuesday post....
