When I saw this week’s Tuesday Ten topic over at Lisa and Rabia’s link up, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to share this week’s highlights of motherhood in Classic Quote fashion. Motherhood throws some good laughs and punches (literally) our way, and I believe every mom will say or hear these things at some point in her life as a mom.
This past week after returning from our trip to Prague, we have had some eventful highs and lows… much like every week as a mother to two busy and crazy kids. And as I reflected on all of our ‘moments’, I realized much of what was said and done is a perfect account of motherhood at it’s finest. Although you may not know the circumstances leading up to these statements, I’m betting you can relate to most if not all of them with just a quick switch of names!
Classic quotes that inspire me? Make me laugh? Lord knows every mom can find them in their daily lives.
Here are mine…
“It’s spread everywhere, and it’s really bad in her butt.”
“Did you or did you NOT punch your sister in the face?”
“Hug your brother NOW! That is NOT a hug! Now you must embrace your brother for one FULL minute every single day.”
“I am going to LOSE IT, if I don’t get sleep.”
“My bad, babe. My bad.”
“Oh honey, you would make the best Santa’s helper EVER!”
“You are really, REALLY driving me crazy today. Be warned.”
“I need to be at three places at once, which one do you want to take?”
“In order to live in this house, you will follow through on everything that is expected of you! And your allowance is a bonus. So, lets start with you getting a home and food and family first, shall we?”
“I am so proud of the person you are becoming. Do you know that?”
Here are my kids’ quotes, connected to mine…
“Mom! I can’t stand this rash anymore! It’s all over me, it’s oozing and scabbing and itches SO bad! (Crying hysterically each night for the last four nights)”
“I didn’t MEAN TO! Okay, yes I did punch her in the face.”
“AW man! I don’t want to!”
“I can’t SLEEP mommy!”
“I’m sorry mom. My bad.”
“Mommy, when I die I want to be Santa’s helper.”
“HAHAHAHAHA!!! We are driving mom crazy today!!”
“Mom I have Good Eats club after school and you need to pick me up late. And don’t I have swim team too? And if Cade has a soccer game far away, how are you going to get me to swim team and pick me up, if you’re taking him to the game? Is Daddy going to the game?”
“Mom, how can I get my allowance back?”
Now it’s your turn! Tell me your latest classic quote of motherhood!!
