parenting progress

Things I frequently say these summer days...

"THIS is why we can't have nice things!"

"Because I said so" shudder

"You're going to have to learn how to manage your time wisely"

"Stop reading over my shoulder!"

"Chew with your mouth closed!"

"Maybe you should call grandma and see if you can visit!" Bwahahaha

"I'm sorry you feel that way"

"I don't even want to know what this is on the wall"

"I hate to break it to you but there isn't a waitress coming over to clear your spot"

"No you can't have ice cream at 8am" seriously, I've said this a dozen times.

"Go ask your dad"

"Go look again"

"You cleaned the entire bathroom that fast?"

"You only have to brush and floss the teeth you want to keep"

"If you just put your shoes away like I ask you won't lose them" 

"You bit who?!"

"NO TV FOR A WEEK!" This is when we are at defcon 1. 

"That's it, I'm failing as a mother!"

And last but not least: The day that I can leave the house without having to turn off any lights or tell *yell* at someone to shut the door behind them is the day that I can say I've done something right with my kids.

How is your summer going?

Loved this...I've said quite a few of those things as well. Even the ice cream bit! I think you're amazing Annie!
