7 Things I Say.

Thanks to Rocks In My Dryer I’m going to list the 7 things that you’d hear from me a lot if you spent the day with us. (I checked these with my daughter and she cleared it - esp. #3.)

Here goes, in no particular order:

1. Could you do me a huge favor and....?

2. Please be kind!

3. DISHWASHER! (meaning: Girls, don’t make me ask you again, “Empty the dishwasher!”)

4. Go see what the screaming is about.

5. Overcome meanness with kindness/goodness.

6. If you want your brother/sister to treat you like a friend, you have to be the kind of friend that he/she wants to have.

7. Sweet dreams, I love you.

Ok, so now it's your turn. What things would I hear you say a lot if I hung around your house for a day? If you want play, leave me a comment with your list or you can leave me the link to your list.

I'm tagging Pastomac Let's see if what he thinks he says a lot matches what we hear around here.

This is a great list. Actually, it was hard for me to narrow mine down. Made me realize there are a LOT of things I say often. And MOST of them are nice! ;)

Thanks for the link.

Very true! I've heard many of those things. But I also hear "I love you" more than any of those. Great post. I'll think about my seven and post again.

How about "would someone get the baby please?!?!" and "Mom he needs to be wiped!"

Well, in our house it would be:

1) Has anyone seen my hair?
2) I'd like to see a cheerful face!
3) But isn't it you who doesn't like the Gamecube? Oh no, that's me! (tied with, Yes, your time is up!)
4) Has anyone seen my hair? (tied with: Can I have a hug and kiss?)
5) Chores and teamwork everyone!
6) Excuse me, but you are NOT the _____ Police (insert any object).
7) Could everyone stop what you are doing and help me find my hair!?!

Hehehe. What a lovely list. Mine would be:
3) No, you cannot watch tv right now.
4) If you want a snack, have an apple.
6) That's it - go sit on the stairs.
7) Was that NICE?
I should wear a black and white striped shirt and a whistle. Yeesh!
