1. “Stop throwing your food on the floor” without fail, after every meal in our home, my floor looks like a small pack of wild animals ransacked a dumpster behind the Outback Steakhouse and left it for me to clean up.
7. No, you don’t need your shoes on to go to bed. Cute. Shoes to bed? Good idea. Mommy should put on her pre-baby stilettos to go to bed because that’s probably the only time they’ll ever be worn again before you go to college.
9. Yes, you have to take a bath. Usually this is in response to “No bath, play toys” – Is this only a boy thing? Or all toddlers? The kid played all day…a bath is non negotiable.
10. I LOVE YOU. I don’t care how many times I repeated myself with any/all of the things above. Saying I love you is as non-negotiable as a bath! Kids need to hear it and moms need to say it.
