“Poop is a very common conversation topic.” -- Sierra S.

“No, I don’t want those free tickets to the game. I’m too tired and bloated.” -- Stephanie S.

“I never thought I would say, ‘Because I said so,’ but now that my daughter is five years old and in the ‘Why?’ stage, I say it all the time.” -- Lynette H.

“‘No, I’d rather go to bed’ -- which pertains to many different things.” -- Amy B.

“I’ve caught myself saying, ‘That’s not nice!’ to a driver who cut me off. In my pre-kids days I would have had a few choice other words.” -- Dannielle B.

“Ahh, he just peed in my mouth!” -- Amber M.

“My favorite comebacks are ‘That wasn’t an option’ and ‘Yeah? But what did I say?’ Emphasis on the ‘I.’
-- Ashley T.

“My husband and I always say we never thought we would be excited for poops and burps. Now we are.” -- Elizabeth B.

“I say ‘Go find Da-da’ a lot -- usually when I’m trying to cook to keep him out of the kitchen, but sometimes when I want to go to the bathroom alone.” -- Lisa B.

“I call feet ‘tootsies’ and snacks ‘num nums.’” -- Shantelle M.

“I say, ‘Just wait, one day you’ll have a kid just like you,’ to my three-year-old son all the time. My mom said it to me until he was born -- now I understand and appreciate her more!” -- Michelle S.

“No, don’t stick your finger up Momma’s nose.” -- Olivia S.

“My dad’s common quote is: ‘You can never have anything nice with kids.’ Now it’s my own!” -- Stacy D.

“I find myself singing lullabies even when I’m by myself. I don’t even realize I’m doing it.” -- Antioinette V.

“My favorite one is, ‘Do you need to go potty?’ My kids hate having to stop what they are doing just to go potty.” -- Lisa R.

“‘Leave the cat alone’ or ‘Go clean your room or your toys are going out with the trash.’” -- Anne M.

“‘Put the dog poop down!’” My toddler daughter just had to put everything in her mouth! Ew!” – Shannon G.
