Say What?

Things you never imagine you will say in your lifetime, until you become a parent:

  • “Do NOT lick that toilet.”
  • “I want to punch that octopus right in the head.”
  • “Please don’t stick your finger in my nose.”
  • “Um, I can’t be sure, but I think she just pooped on my arm.”
  • “Okay. So we’re getting cynical about Sesame Street now?”
  • “Ooh, that poop must’ve HURT.”
  • “And I realized, there are boogers all over the sheets.”
  • “I think one of the prerequisites of being a children’s entertainer should be that you have to have a reflection.”
  • “Okay, nobody needs to see that except you and your doctor.”
  • “Yeah, she’s fine. She belched twice, farted, and then fell face first on my shoulder.”
  • “Where are your PANTS??” (Okay, some of us remember that one from university.)

  1. That reminds me of something that a friend of mine told me. Her Granddaughter asked if she could snap her index finger. No, she said, I can snap my third finger and proceeded to show her how smart she was. SNAP, SNAP!!! No Grammy, it has to be the index finger. Why Grammy asked? She replied, the BOOGERS go farther if you use the index finger……From the mouths of Babes. Why else would you snap your finger?

  2. Aren’t these the staple lines or what? I find myself looking for pants and tallking about poop a lot. Everyday.


  3. I’m trying to figure out which children’s entertainer DOESN’T have a reflection, because I think that something I should know. Are we talking about the Count on Sesame Street, because I don’t think he’s a real vampire. Though I suppose he could be.

  4. BDH thinks Anthony from the Wiggles is the Undead. Anthony also has eyes the colour of saran wrap, like Stephen Harper, so that really makes a strong case for being not of this world, not to mention a minion of Satan.

  5. Good to know. Although I spent 8 years in Australia I am only vaguely familiar with the Wiggles, and I’d like to keep it that way!

  6. Nah, the Wiggles are awesome like a hot dog. They keep my kid entertained for HOURS. Seriously. It’s only Anthony that’s a little creepifying. I think he’s a bit of an attention whore myself — hello, can you wedge yourself or your family members into any MORE scenes, there, Anthony? — but otherwise they’re good.

    They’re no Sesame Street, but they’re a good alternative.

  7. The current favourite around here is:

    Quick Quick before I spray in my pants!

    Ahhhh boys……

  8. Nobody beats the Muppets, but I do concede that the Muppets are a bit too “old” for babies. They are colourful, though. I suppose I will give the Wiggles a chance, but not until The Baby comes along.

  9. Well we love the Wiggle and Anthony is my favorite. What that says about me, I am not sure. Maybe it is just because he wears blue. I miss Greg though. Sam just isn’t the same when you have been watching Greg for 11 years. It would have been better if they had given him a new color-maybe green so he wasn’t trying to replace Greg. I must say I love the older, not-trying-so-hard-to-be fancy Wiggles. When it was just them reacting with the kids in front of a plain background, they really shone. Now they just get lost in the scenery.

  10. See, we LOVE Sam here. Sam keeps us watching, and the boy can SING! And we like that Murray is still like a kindergarten teacher.

    I am personally lobbying for BDH to be the new Purple Wiggle.

  11. Ooh, and Janna, you have to check out the Sesame Street podcasts. They’re little 5 minute bites of Sesame goodness. Usually they cover one concept or word, and they are full of win.

    That Baby LOVES her Sesame.

  12. “How did pee get on the mirror, exactly?” was the moment when I realized life would never be the same.

    #1 is pretty good too. And which octopus is incurring your wrath? Oswald?

  13. Oh my lord, I uttered those same words about the toilet some months back.

    What are the Wiggles and where do I find them??

  14. Hmmmm. We moisturize to Youtube. It’s how I get her to hold relatively still. This is now bookmarked for tomorrow morning. I see real potential here. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Definitely check out “Dr Knickerbocker” (Stinkerbelle’s fave) and “Toot Toot Chugga Chugga Big Red Car”. We LOOOOOVE those ones.

  16. There was a split-second hesitation and then she hit the dance floor.

    Not so good for staying still while moisturizing, but man, she loves it! I’m going to get a DVD.

  17. I recommend “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing” for, well, the dancing, “Racing to the Rainbow” and “Splish Splash Big Red Boat” for fun and entertainment, and “Pop Go the Wiggles” for gentle, traditional songs and nursery rhymes. All VERY popular Casa Peevish.

  18. Just drove home from a BBQ with my daughter who wanted to sing “Toot Toot Chugga Chugga Big Red Car” the whole way. I think it was pretty much love at first sight with The Wiggles. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Yay Christy, at least she picked a good one! Welcome to the endless ear worms of the Wiggles. ๐Ÿ˜€

    My daughter breaks into shrieks of joy in anticipation of “Dr Knickerbocker” and jigs with joy at “Here Comes a Chicken”… thank you Auntie Sherri and Auntie Heather!
