You Might Be A Parent...

With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy...

You might be a parent if you have ever said:

  • "Get off your sister!" (and you are not a pornographic film director)
  • "Have two more bites and then you are done," (and you are not a orthodontics, oral surgeon or involved in the manufacturing of dental appliances in any way)
  • "You never listen! Do you think I talk just to hear my own voice?" (and you are neither a film sound technician or an educator for the hearing impaired)
  • "We don't wear pyjamas all day around here!" (and you are not a nurse in a mental facility)
  • "Around here, we wear pyjamas to bed!" (and you are not a lingerie photographer)
  • "Don't put that in your mouth without washing it!" (and you are not a pornographic film director)
  • "Stop being so dramatic!" (and you are not holding an off-Broadway Ibsen revival, focusing on the subtleties of the character development)
  • "No one is ruining your life." (and you are not selling the child for medical experimentation)
  • "No, you are not old enough to do whatever you want!" (and the kids are not in the process of putting you in a home)

March 20 Update: Thanks everyone for your comments. Too many to comment on here, but I'll post on each of your blogs.

BTW, Last night I had to pull out the old "I don't care what So-and-So’s parents let him do, you’re not doing that.” I wonder if the first Caveman father who said that also felt like an idiot?

Get off your sister is a frequent one around here =/

I'm thankful when I say "Get off your sister" because in a few more years we're scared we're going to be yelling "Get off your Step-Brother!!" God help us here.

You repeat words over and over:

"Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop!"

"No! No! No! No! No!"

"Put that down! Put that down! Put that down! "

Very funny. I know each one of those has been said around here. I also like what Daddy geek boy commented. As if you need to say it over, they didn't hear you the first 20 times.
