Day after Day

List the things you hear yourself saying, day after day.

There are the usual momisms:
"I love you! Have a great day!"
"Front & Center!"
"Hands off the walls."
"No running in the house!"
"No jumping next to the computer!"
"Use your words."
"Belly button to your plate, please."


"Where are we going? What are we listening to?"
Dialing in our country drive, each day after school.  Lately, their musical selections are alternating between the Inspiration Everywhere CD and Jungle Book 2 soundtrack.

"What, Bonnie?!"
In regards to our cat, who has taken on loud meowing as a full time job.

Usually in response to silly kidlet antics.

And when the silly moves to the nonsensical:
"You're hurting my pockets."

"Use your words."

And these two are exchanged with my wee girl and are often said by either one of us:

"You're so sweet, cute and smart!"
And the reply always is, "And. So. Are. You."

"Mother-Daughter team. You. And. Me."

"Use your words."

"That's 'cause you've got The Big Brain."

And the simple phrase that echoes through the hall from all of us, ending the night, each and every night:
"I love you! Night-night!"

I am writing along with Lizz of Am I a Funny Girl? again today.  And while this is technically the "Saturday Seven", I just went with the flow and listed up some of the things that I say on a daily basis from the heart and some that I'm so sick of saying, I'd rather just have them tattooed to my forehead!  I'm sure we all have a few of those! :>

What do you hear yourself saying day after day?


  1. I'm pretty sure it's this:

    my friend, Karen, is witty, insightful, vigilant and TRUE! Thanks for sharing all that you do!

  2. Belly buttons to your plate has basically been our way of asking the kidlets to turn around & sit square in their chairs at the table for a meal. It's literal, which works good for a literal kidlet! :>


Thank You for visiting! I appreciate and am grateful for all of You who craft some of Your time to leave me comments!
