Things I Say Far Too Often These Days

To the almost sixteen year old:

"Brake! Brake!"

"You are the only one who gets my humor around here."

"If you don't want to go to college it's okay with me. You can live with us forever." (She just got a 5 on the A.P. European History test. I'm not proud or anything....)

To the almost 13 - going on 18, year old:

"Get off the phone!"

"Get off the computer!"

"Did you make your bed yet?"

To the almost 6 year old:

"Did you make your bed yet?"

"Aim! Aim!"

"You really do need to take a bath today."

I would really like to retire most of these statements.

Those phrases all sound familiar to me. My kids are in new "phrase stages" now. I hope you are all settled in your new house.
