Inspired by Jodi’s Burning Questions
, I can’t resist sharing this list I’ve been working on for a week or so…and yes, they’re directed at the youngest member of our family, the one who’s a walking bruise and into everything and learning at a rate that inspires and scares me. Ah, to be two (or close enough to round up, anyway)!
- Is there a meal for which Goldfish are not the appropriate dessert?
- Do you know where the keys are?
- Did you eat the marker?
- Have you seen the clothes for your doll?
- Did you turn off my computer? Again?
- Aren’t your feet cold?
- How many times do I have to tell you…?

And then there are the automated responses…
Yes, you have to wear the jacket.
No, you may not give the cat a bath!
No, you won’t die of doing chores.
Yes, the stove does work, the microwave is just quicker.
And my favorite…
No, you may not put the dog in the dryer!
(I can just imagine the kids thinking the dryer is like a big hamster wheel for dogs!)
The most common comment heard at our home before bedtime is, “Please pick up your swords, shields, and guns and get your pajamas on.”
Susan, those are GREAT! Especially the last one!
Jim, well, what can I say? You had me laughing (as stories of your boys always do), and thinking about what the most common comment in MY house will be soon…
I’m flattered to have been an inspiration, Sarah!
Goldfish make a great meal but not dessert if you ask me. I know where my keys are and we never turn off our computers except when we leave home for an extended period of time.
We go through the “yes, you have to wear your coat” all fall, winter, and spring on days when my son should be wearing his coat.
