10. Sooooo, whatcha want to do for dinner tonight?

11. Thank you for (doing laundry, the dishes, going shopping) honey!

13. So, tell me about what you learned today...

14. I need some snuggles (or, the abbreviated, "snugs")!

  1. Here are but a few of my well worn expressions:

    I said NO!

    Stop destroying your brother's Legos.

    You are cute!

    Please Come Here NOW!

    I want to cuddle with you. (Unfortunately not said to spouse, but to 6, 4 or 2 year old).

    Can we talk about something other than Star Wars for the next hour?

    We don't shoot at our brothers.

    Hurry up!

    Let's go!

  2. Oh man... those are all things I say every day too! Here are a few additional ones from our home:

    1. I'm so glad to see you today!

    2. Did you wake up happy this morning?

    3. Remember, NOTHING goes in our nose. Not even fingers.

    4. Can anyone hear me?

    5. That's something you can do (pillow fights, water guns, etc.) when Daddy gets home.

    6. Because Mommy's working right now. That's why.

    7. Nope, Mommies don't need friends in the bathroom with them.

  3. 1. What did you dream last night?

    2. Let's name all the people that love you.

    3. Stop torturing your brother/sister!

    4. No. No necklaces. No questions. No hugs. Let me finish going to the bathroom (inspired by Kara).

    5. What was your favorite thing at school today?

    6. What was the worst thing that happened to you today?

    7. No book/song unless you brush your teeth and get ready for bed RIGHT NOW!

    8. OK. I'll stop cleaning and play with you (they call me on my OCD behavior all. the. time.).

    9. If you come out of bed to talk to me one more time - no Friday treasure chest.

    10. You are my favorite (boy/girl) on the entire planet.

    11. I love you more than the sky. The planets. The galaxy.

    5. Oh, really? Tell me more. (response to many coos and gurgly noises)
    6. Whoa! That was a loud one...let's go change your di-di.
    7. Here comes the hippo. (referring to a toy, not myself)
    8. Oh, you don't want the hippo? What about the talking star?! Oh, ok, here comes the booby.
    9. What a tired girl.
    10. It's sleepy time...mommy loves you.
