Things I Never Imagined I'd Say To My Kids (At Least Not Before I Met Them...)

buck

Copying, coloring in, and cutting out reams of the school's reward bucks is called forgery. It also wastes ink, and I will confiscate them.

Never put out a lighter with the vacuum cleaner!

Hiding the lighter under your pillow isn't such a bright idea either...

armpit

Stuffing a dollar store toy axe up your shirt and into your armpit isn't just uncomfortable, it's shoplifting. Violators will be prosecuted...

This is not a safe experiment.

If you get a tattoo on your neck, I can promise you will live to regret it.

whoa the apple thing looks scary--maybe you should put a cover plate on that switch. If you want to come on by and meet Jack I’m home.

I know your kids, so none of that surprised me much!!! I hope it was the back of her neck, at least!

The Cranes said...

Didn't she get the tattoo on her foot?

scrappysue said...

Shellie said...

She did get the tattoo on her foot instead of her neck because she at least listened to that part of my advice.

LOL. I've been surprised at some of the things I've had to say too. And that apple experiment definitely does not look like a good idea!

Jen said...

HILARIOUS!

Robyn said...

I can just imagine what went through your mind coming upon the apple.

Patty O. said...

Wow, sounds like you have your hands full! The apple attached to the outlet, now that is pure genius!!
