Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Mary tagged me with a little meme. What are seven things I find myself repeating over and over throughout the day? In no particular order:

  1. Stop fighting.
  2. Go sit in the living room until you can stop crying.
  3. I love you.
  4. Ouch.
  5. Put your shoes/toys/crayons away.
  6. Go to the changing table.
  7. How do you say that politely?

My friend, Jo, thinks her somewhat similar list is a sign that she needs more adult conversation. I like to think it just means I only have to repeat myself this frequently with the short set. Although, there is one phrase on the list I do repeat early and often to the other grown-up in the house.


I had no idea Justin had to go to the living room to stop crying quite so often!

You learn something new every day, don't you. :)

I woulda guessed #6. You get all the ones before he gets home, he gets the rest.

Dan, we used to joke that I filled the kids up and he cleaned them up. Justin is pretty good about doing cleanup duty when he's home, so I usually don't have to order him to the changing table.
