I have been uttering the oddest phrases as a mom. And as soon as I hear myself speak them, I laugh to myself (or wince) and wonder how many other moms have said the same things.

Here's my current Top Ten List--See if any sound familiar:

10. "The cat doesn't like to be tackled."
9. "Don't drag your brother!"
8. "We don't make mud pies in the house-take that outside, please."
7. "The toilet is not a Barbie bathtub."
(Tupperware is very handy in this case)
6. "Daddy's computer screen is not paper-we only color on the paper."
5. "Don't put your finger in MY nose."
4. "The litter box is NOT a sand box."
3. "Don't smother your brother-that means get off of him NOW!"
2. "Please, wipe your bum before you sit on the furniture."
And the Top Ten oddest utterance...
"Oh, don't teethe on the training potty..."
