A while back, I wrote
a gushy bundle of mush a bunch of deep and meaningful words to my boys telling them some mommy thoughts I’ve never said out loud.
This time, I’m turning this idea on it’s head.
And writing a pile of verbals I’m always telling my boys in the hope that on the millionth time, they’ll get it. (Puff, blow, heave-ho.)
This is a much longer list.
Can you relate?
If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a hundred times…
Your socks don’t go there.
Have you cleaned your teeth?
What’s the magic word?
Try that again.
Did you wash your hands?
What do you want for breakfast?
Have a great 5th grade day!
Elbows off the table.
What do you want in your sandwiches?
Do you want mayonnaise or mustard?
Go get the lunchboxes off the back seat. Please.
Are you strapped in?
Who made this mess?
Do your shoes really go there?
You have school in the morning.
Do you have your homework?
Where are your glasses?
Half that milk is just fine.
You can always use your allowance.
Is anybody listening to me?
Bath night, tonight.
I love you.
Kiss, kiss 🙂
