Mama Said


For Mama Kat’s writing prompt: “Write a list of 10 things you have said to your kids that other moms might not say.”

  1. Don’t call me a noob.
  2. What do you mean, you don’t want to try it? It’s savory ice cream!
  3. TCB before privies. (“Take care of business” before you can play your computer game.)
  4. Could you hold this turkey leg for a second?
  5. Do I look maniacal?
  6. Douché. (I thought I invented this, but Urban Dictionary proved otherwise.)
  7. Does a zombie makeover count as a real makeover?
  8. Why’d you go to the Pez factory without me?
  9. Just eat it, Dan. You can’t even taste the squash.
  10. Trivet cheek!

Mama’s Losin’ It

  1. LOVE these 🙂 The “intimate” language of a home…the jokes, the rhythm of the words, it’s so personal…and I must say that living in your home sounds a lot like living in mine. Stopped by from the SITS Sharefest. Happy Saturday!

  2. Not the Pez Factory!!!! It sounds to me that there is a good sense of humor in your home. That’s always a good thing.

    I think I’ll borrow “TCB before privies” and where is this PEZ factory?

      My sons talk in nonstop computer game jargon, so I bust out my own jargon whenever I can. Borrow away! 🙂 The Pez factory is in Orange, CT, not that I’VE ever gone, or anything.
