Overheard in My House This Morning

If you had been in my house this morning you might have heard...

  • If you can't speak kindly, go back to bed.
  • It's time to get up now.
  • Please put on your clothes and come to breakfast.
  • No whining allowed outside of your room. Go back in your room and finish whining there.
  • It's time to get up now.
  • Please wash your hands before breakfast.
  • Mommy's throwing up...stop pounding on the door and yelling at me!
  • Don't eat that! It belongs in a tissue, not your mouth!
  • If you're going to shout at Mommy, you may go back to bed.
  • It's time to get up now.
  • No pajamas at the breakfast table...go put on your clothes!
  • Don't eat that! It belongs in a tissue, not your mouth! If you eat that again, I will clean your mouth with soap!
  • There's no room for name calling in our family. Go back to bed and stay there until you're ready to be a kind family member.
  • Eat what's on your plate with a thankful heart. Biscuits are usually your favorite.
  • No school until you eat your breakfast.
  • If you don't finish before the bus comes, you will be walking to school.
  • Your teacher has been told not to give you snacks unless it is snack time.
  • Go to the bathroom so I can wash your mouth. BOOGERS ARE NOT FOOD!
  • It's time to get up now!!!
  • Screaming is not allowed anywhere but your room. If you want to scream, go scream in your room.
  • At prayer time, we are quiet and respectful to God.
  • This means stop goofing off and giggling.
  • If you can't control your mouth, we'll put tape on your lips to remind you.
  • Close your lips so I can put tape on them.
  • You may not answer questions with tape on your mouth...time to practice quiet listening and respectful taking turns.
  • Just getting your toothbrush wet doesn't count as brushing your teeth.
  • Go brush again.
  • Do you need a short haircut, or will you stop hitting me while I'm brushing your hair?
  • Go brush again and use toothpaste this time!
  • Please turn out your bedroom lights.
  • Don't leave your pajamas on the hallway floor, please!
  • Tennis shoes to school, not flip flops! Two months into school, you know this!
  • Have a great day at school today!
  • See you this afternoon.
  • I love you!
Laundry is cycling. Homeschool child is doing an art project. Dishwasher is running. Anti-nausea meds are digesting and making me so sleepy. 8:56 a.m. and I'm going back to bed.
