#1 needs to get out

Posted 30 January 2018 - 01:26 PM

My favourite lately - DS1 got a Barbie for Christmas. She came with a campfire and a marshmallow and sausage on sticks to cook over said fire.

Several times there has been a loud wail "Where's Barbie's sausage?" "Who's seen Barbie's sausage?"

All the adults in the house are terribly immature and find this hilarious.

Just now, DS1 and 2 are playing with the marble race. I found myself saying in all seriousness "Don't lose your marbles!!!".

Too late for me *hollow laugh*

My mum has a genius for saying random things at inopportune times. Once, lost in an unfamiliar suburb and with tempers fraying, Mum got distracted by an unusually proportioned house number and blurted out “ Look at that ENORMOUS number 2!”. Well, that broke the tension and we all roared with laughter 🤣

Barbie featuring again.

Just said to DS3 - Barbie is NOT getting her pants on until you've packed the magnet tiles away.

So many levels of wrong in that sentence.

We are working on putting one lot of toys away before you start playing with the others, in an effort to keep the mess down.

not amusing i guess, but obviously a regular part of my discourse with my kids.....master 6 asked for the eleventy billionth time when we could open the chocolates/turn the christmas tree lights on/play uno/go to the pool so i gave my stock standard response of “soon”  .....to which he retorted in super whingey voice “but muuuuum when you say “soon” it means never”

you’re a quick learner kid....

This popped* up on my FB feed yesterday & it made me chuckle, it was from 3yrs ago.

I took the youngest who was 7 at the time to see Santa at the local Mall, we'd already had our photo done a few days prior but DS wanted to stop & say hello.

SANTA:   Hello little boy, what's your name, have you been a good boy & what would you like Santa to bring you for Christmas?

DS:  No, Santa I was naughty today, I hit my big sister with my Baseball bat. (Plastic toy one).

SANTA:  Oh, you know I have a special sack full of socks & undies for little boys & girls who are naughty.  Best you behave so you can get the toys you have wished for Christmas instead of socks or undies.

DS:  OK Santa, can I have an orange pair of undies please...

*ETA:   Popped, not pooped, LOL!

On a somewhat regular basis I get frustrated and yell out to DS1- "DS1 I AM SICK OF FINDING TINY PENISES ALL OVER THE HOUSE!".

... at some stage he and his friends must have gotten bored in tech and used the laser cutter to cut out hundreds of little penis shaped confetti, he puts them in his pockets and then they get through the washing machine and get dropped all through the house as the washing goes out.  I thought I finally got rid of them but recently they're back again...
