Monday Mom isms

I would label myself as somewhat of a creative parent. There have been many times over the years where I have resorted to psychological warfare with the kids especially when I am outnumbered. There are times when I have used my humor to cope. I find myself saying things to the kids at times that weren't exactly my moms run of the mill "Mom isms". Admit it we all do it at times, we live in a day and age of kids that are way smarter than us at times and there are just some instances when no matter what you say, you are loosing the argument and just have to find a way to end the conversation. I thought I would make a quick list of some the one I use most from my repertoire so for those days when your feel most defeated please feel free to use a little of my creative parenting if it will help
Please know that all of these are used with a light an sarcastic voice, I love my kids more that anything but I will be the first to tell anyone that I know them through and through for the manipulative little ankle biters they are. So now on to the list:

1. God himself, will not come down on his Golden Chariot and save you from me if you do not do what I have told you immediately..which is quickly respond by them with "Mom God has way better things to do than get his chariot out and come down here and deal with you.

2. So help me if you hit your sibling one more time I am going to be left no other choice that to pull your arms off and bludgeon you with them. Which is again responded with " Well if you do that then you'll be stuck bathing me putting my clothes on for the rest of my life.

3. Because I said so!! This one is sure to get them out of the way, quickly they realize at that point they have lost.

4. Dear God Baby Jesus, this is there Que that they have pushed me way to far and it is best for them to exit the room s soon as possible

OK so these are just the ones that I had on the top of my tongue. I would love to hear some of your top four or five that you find yourself using quite a bit. I would love to have you link up and share some of your most tried and true Mom Isms with us. I would love to hear what you have to say to your kids from time to time or what were some of your favorite Mom isms that your mom used on you.

Those are all great and I may have to steal on or two. Mostly I just get "the look" they all talk about, even hubby, and it says it all. Go run for your life.

I love yours....

I don't know if I have 4 or 5, but the one I use most is:

"If I were you I would watch cause I brought you to this world and I can easily take you out"
