Here is part of the reason: for a while now it has occurred to me that, at this stage in my young childrens' lives, I could actually be replaced by a robot who says the following 10 phrases. Because, in reality, the majority of my job all day is to change diapers, feed them, and say the following phrases OVER AND OVER:
- Stay on your bottom.
- What are you doing in Mommy's kitchen?
There are no toys in here.
- I hear you/I know you are mad,
I just need 5 seconds and I'll fix it.
- Give me 5 seconds!
- Who has poop?/did you poop?/Everyone has poop!
- Listen to me with your ears.
- You are not listening to what I said. Please listen and obey.
- That's why I told you not to do that: IT HURTS
- Sir, please stop telling your sister what to do.
- You're ok, no really, you are fine! - where's your lovey?
Today's blog post is short, but so is the list of conversational topics and phrases that are uttered throughout the day with two toddlers.
Do you identify? What are some phrases you say all day long?
