What was the one thing your mother/father said that you swore you would never say to your kids?


I always said I would never say the following-


"If you dont stop crying for no reason I can give you a reason"


"Im cold so you have to come inside"


"Because I said so thats why"


Ofcorse I have said all three.

My dh once cut a comic out of the Sunday paper. It showed a dad in a sweater, with 2 kids in sweaters with puzzled faces. The caption said, "Because your mother is cold. THAT's Why!"

What about the things that you say to OTHER peoples' kids? I remember this as the "Day I Became an Adult":

I was camping with dd's 3 nephews and their parents. They had a pop-up trailer and the kids (4,5 and 6) were going in and out, banging the door everytime. I looked at them after a few minutes and yelled, "Either you're IN or you're OUT!!" Oh, god, I thought, I am my mother!

I was only 24 at the time and finally an adult...lol.

I remember the day my father came home and yelled at us to turn down the music.

Zak was nine months old. He was crying in his carseat uncontrollably forever and a day it seemed.


I turned around and said,"If you can't calm down, I am pulling this car around!" Yeah, he understood me.


Other favorites:


"No one likes a tattle tail"


"Go to your room and think about it"


"Because I said so"

"If you are so bored, I can find you something to do." (we usually ran away so fast when we heard that one!)


But there is one that I love to say to my kids that my parents used to say all the time (in fact my dad said it just the other day about my son)

"If you hang with sh*t you're going to stink."

I love that one.

"Shut up," "because I said so," and "wait till your father comes home!"
