*stuff* parents say
One moment you have dignity and some semblance of self worth, the next you are feeling like hot stuff because you shaved your legs this month, a stolen chicken nugget is a meal, and you feel a huge sense of accomplishment when you teach your children to use a bottle opener for you.
I know in my pre-kid days I was a Judgey McJudgeison who often turned my nose up at parents who's children weren't eating their broccoli with smiles at every meal, saying please and thank you in their sleep, and knowing how to locate an effing salad fork. Seriously, I don't even know which one is the salad fork so I am not sure where these delusions came from. At any rate, I was thinking the other day that there are some real gems that my kid-free friends would be equally horrified and amused-in-a-non-understanding-condescending-way at hearing me utter.
Here are my top fifteen.
Shit I Never Said Before I Became a Mom
1. I used the baby's Nose Freda ... on myself. I feel better.
2. Thank gawd, it is only pee.
3. Bye bye penis! Bye bye now! *said in a really animated voice that makes pulling one's pants on acceptable even when one really doesn't want his pants on*
4. I can't tell for sure, let me just sniff his butt.
5. Ha ha ha, they say it is unbreakable!
6. So do you want to wear pants today? Please?
7. Is that a booger or a scab?
8. OMG, seriously, I can go to the grocery store and shop By. My. Self?! (okay I have never said this, but I fantasize about getting to, and that is a new thing)
9. Well at least he didn't swallow it, we are no where near our deductible yet.
10. What, you don't have the number for poison control memorized?
11. Holy flip flops Wolverine, trim those toenails!
12. When did I get that black eye?
13. Oh it is only a little poop/pee/vomit/snot.
14. Did you actually use soap/toothpaste this time, or just water?
15. Dora is a hooker, DJ Lance is on acid, but Caillou is a whiny bitch.
What about you? What are some zingers you never thought you'd say prior to parenthood?
