A mom, by definition, is INSANITY.


I think about Albert Einstein daily. Is that odd? Let me explain.

A few years ago, I ran across this graphic while scrolling through my Facebook feed. The first thing that popped into my mind was, “BUT I REPEAT MYSELF DAILY!!!!”

“Put your shoes on. FASTER.”

“Wrong feet.”

“Get a kleenex.”

“Stop hitting your sister.”

“We don’t say that word outside of the bathroom.”

“No, you can’t have gummies for breakfast.”

The list could go on and on. Seriously though – I sometimes feel like one of those battery-operated dolls that you push their tummy to hear 1 of 25 pre-programmed sayings. I don’t go off script often as a mom.

What do you find yourself saying over and over (and over and over) AND OVER as a parent? Share your favorite (or not-so-favorite) one liner that you say {on repeat} throughout your day.



I’m excited to participate in my first MOM LIFE MONDAY BLOG LINK-UP PARTY. Check it out below.

  1. Haha! My kids are all teenagers now, so thankfully, I don’t have to say the typical things I used to say when they were little. Now, I sound more like:
    • Stay sweet.
    • It may be true, but it doesn’t have to be said out loud.
    • You are welcome to hate it, but you still have to do it. (applies to all sorts of things)

    ENJOY these crazy days! They won’t last forever (I promise).

  2. Lately it’s been “we need to get moving” with my two, almost three year old who insists on getting himself in and out of the car. I need to add about ten minutes to my leave time lately!

  3. Ahhhh, this is sooo funny! Parenthood truly is allllll about repetition, because that’s how kids learn best. Repetition and consistency!
    My 18 month old has just learned to identify almost every part on his face, it’s adorable, but it took allllooott of pointing “Yes, that’s your nose”, giggling, and repeat. And alas! He has learned his nose.

    I’m not looking forward to the days when he’s just trying to annoy me though…lol
    Thanks for sharing! <3
