moms say the darndest things



THINGS I APPARENTLY SAY TO MY DAUGHTER:
(Because, you know, she totally now says them to me.)


"It's not a toy!"


"Just a minute."


"Sure!"


"You hungry?" 
(This is, naturally, how she states that SHE is hungry. I love it too much to correct her.)


"Bye you hungry."
(I don't say this one, but Maggie does when I tell her it's not time for lunch yet. I won't be correcting this one, either.)


"Hey look at this."


"Or ... " 
(Usually after I've offered a suggestion for lunch.)


"How 'bout this one?"


"Don't bite it!"


"I'm coming, Lydi!" or "It's OK, Lydi!" 
(Said to Lydi when she cries. And don't worry — Maggie likes to cry while she's saying it. Sister solidarity? Try, "That's so super annoying, Lydi.")


"Oh so pretty!"


"No splashing!"


"What did you do?!"


"Crying's not gonna help you." 
(Typically said whilst she's sobbing, of course. But my favorite moment? When she told a tearful Lydia that crying wasn't going to help her, either. It's hard out there for a toddler.)

This is hilarious. I can't believe she says "crying is not going to help you". What a crack up.
