It’s Not All Mary Poppins

The things you hear yourself saying…

“Rory. We do not sit on people’s heads. Off, right now.”

“Please do not pick the baby’s nose.”

“Because she is a dog. People clean their bums with toilet paper.” (This, I hasten to clarify, was strictly a theoretical question. No one had actually tried to implement canine-style personal hygiene.)

“Rory! We certainly don’t BOUNCE on people’s heads.”

Those were mine for today. What were yours?

  8. No, buddy, Mommy’s penis isn’t broken. I don’t have one because I’m a girl. Only boys have a penis. (conversations with my 2-year-old boy can be very interesting sometimes!)

  10. “We do not stick our fingers in other people’s eyes.”

    “Do you need to pee? No? Then please don’t hold your penis while we’re walking down the road.”

    And similar to an earlier commenter, I had a discussion with a newly-in-underwear 3 year old about how it is VERY VERY IMPORTANT to pull down your pants and underwear *before* you sit on the toilet.

  11. I am laughing hysterically here. Thanks for sharing these! I can’t wait to have kids of my own so I can share my own funny comments.

  13. “Please don’t catapult the baby.” (to a toddler “helping” to soothe an infant in his bouncy chair)
