(More) Things You Never Thought You'd Say Before You Had Kids

"Yes, there IS a little yellow slug in your tap shoe. Go shake it out, then!"

"Look out for your sister, it's not kind to kick her in the head when she's sleeping."

"Take that mummified dog off your dad's dinner, please."

"Talia baby, can you take the plant outside? Thank you!"

"Where is that burning smell coming from? Do you *have* to make potions in the kitchen?!"

"Dog water is for dogs. Get your face out of that bowl!"

"These packets of pants don't belong to us, they belong to the shop. Kindly take your hands OUT of the pants."

    1. They had mummified a small plastic dog in toilet paper. I have no idea why! They were taking it outside to bury in the sandpit, and walked it across a line of dinner plates on their way through to the garden! One of those moments that never made its way in to my mental image of what it would be like to have children... ;)

    1. I love my list of "things I never thought I'd say", it brings back so many brilliant memories. The first entry was when Jenna was one year old:

      "Don't lick baby Jesus, you don't know where he's been!"
