Things I was planning not to say:

Things I was planning not to say:

1.  No No No No No No! 
(alternately: Micah Micah Micah Micah; Stop Stop Stop Stop Stop)
 Really, shouldn't one time be enough?

2. Why did you do that?
Why questions are awful.  And to a two-year old?
3. You're making me crazy!
No excuses... this one is awful!

4. That wasn't so bad, was it?
Close relative to "I told you so"

5. Guys
Ugh, what an ugly word.


  1. haha I say "You're making me crazy" sometimes too and feel awful every time. I do the "Micah Micah Micah Micah" thing too, but not as often as I say, "Leto Leto Leto Leto Leto Leto Leto Leto Leto". . .boys purposefully don't want to let you know if they are listening or not!!!!

    haha. I laughed at some of these. I think the only time I ask why they do something is after they come out of their corner punishment and I ask them why they hit their brother or threw a car at them or something. I haven't done the other two though. Ah, motherhood.

  2. hehehe
    It's so true -- you say you're never gonna do certain things when you become a mom, and then you become a mom.

    I have tried to erase "Guys" as in, "You guys." from my vocabulary, but it's proven to be more difficult than I anticipated. I DO cringe every time I say it, but I say it nonetheless.

  3. Oh, I'm glad you get the "guys" one. I wasn't sure if anyone else would understand that. I'm conscious of not calling them "twins" and try not to say "boys" all the time, and sometimes it comes out as "come on guys!" They say it too. :P
