This made me laugh - a dad in America has started making posters of some of the weird stuff he's found himself telling his kids (eg, "Get that toilet seat off your head. Now." "Stop riding that penguin. We're leaving.").

(You can see them all here).

Anyway, just thought I'd ask... what weird things have you found yourself telling your kids lately?

Not to my kids but I said this to my dog today.

"I know you want to put one your jumper but there's no need to freak out!"

Yes, I talk to my dog and put jumpers on her.

Just this morning - 'Don't put toothbrush in bottom'. We have since been for a trip to Woolies for a replacement.

1. Your vagina is not a vase; and
2. Your vagina is not an extra set of hands.

Nothing happens if your bum is on your head.

No, you cannot make the Earth bigger by adding more rocks.

Feet are not for standing on.

Penises don't give birth.

Stop eating your dinner through your nose.



What are feet for at your house?

Toothpaste is not a food!

For a toddler who HATES having her teeth brushed, she seems to quite like toothpaste.

Oh and she's been known to lick me a few times recently. It's disturbing.

That would be one handy vagina, that one.

Stop letting the rat eat your snot.

Whose rat is this, and why is it in my kitchen.

Whose bum-fingers can I smell?

Sweetie, we really need to remember to wear underpants to the doctors.

Get your head out of the freezer.

Just be quiet and eat your McDonalds/Icecream/Lollies

I could go on.....

Finish your chocolate first, THEN you can have an apple.

To my son before we worked out that chocolate was what was causing his behavioural difficulties. He'd been going through a stage where he would take a bite of a food then dump it in favour of another one and I was sick of the wastage.

Similar to PP.  "No shooting at the dinner table."
Just then, "Don't touch your willy at the dinner table."

I sing 'All you do is poo' to the tune of 'All you need is love' at nappy change time, and then it gets stuck in my head and I start singing it in public :-S
