Conversations On A Saturday Morning

"Go sit in time out until you feel like doing your homework."

"But, Mama! I'll never feel like doing my homework!"

"Then I guess you're going to be in time out for quite a while."

==============================================

"Blow your nose."

"Whyyyyyy do I allllways have to blow my nose?"

"Because yellow snot slugs on their way to your chin are totally gross."

==============================================

"Go back to the bathroom and wash your hands with soap."

"But I'm going outside."

"I don't care if you're going to stick your hands in cow poop. You wash your hands with soap after you use the bathroom."

+1 point for you for making your kid wash their hands before touching anything, even cowpoop.

Actually I'm giving points additionally when the post makes me laugh out loud while reading. HILARIOUS!!!!!

If I'm laughing out loud too often, guess I'll have to change my criteria........

I'm willing to give 2 for this one. The cowpoop line is Worst Mama Hall of Fame worthy, and the idea of endless timeout is almost dizzying...

FlapScrap said...

So then, am I alone in preferring the "snot slugs" reference?

My only recommendation (and I'm no mother according this site's definition) would be to tell the child that the snot slugs are traveling north, toward the brain.

@flapscrap: Actually, I might prefer it if the slugs were headed north. Then there'd only be the gross large snorting sounds to deal with. Looking over at your kid and seeing two worms on his lip is sort of in the grosser than gross category...

The visuals are making my stomach turn.
Love the endless time out...I'm all for a point for that one!
