As a parent (especially of boys), there are things I've said or done that have taken me by surprise. I very often go "did I REALLY just say that!?!"
Here are a few:
~ Asking myself "are they hurting each other? are they bothering anyone? NO." and then letting them run amok in public places. ("Amok! Amok! Amok!")
~ "Where did this BOOGER come from?!?"
~ "C'mere... let me check your butt."
~ "Do not put your feet on your brother!"
~ "I am The MOM and I said so."
~ "You don't wash your face with your tongue, you wash it with soap and water!"
~ "There's no need to fight with your brother - the other half of this book is lying around here somewhere. Go find it!"
~ "Get your head out of my BUTT!"
~ "Please stop climbing me!"
~ "Stop! You're going to get POOP everywhere!"
