I don’t know about you, but since I became a parent I find myself saying the most funny things! I am absolutely certain that, after I had Grace, I basically turned into my own mum. I could hear her sayings in my ear and started to use them myself. The only one I don’t think I use is ‘I can’t see a dicky bird’ (a memory of me and my siblings bursting into laughter as my mum said this whilst reversing the car!) but that is probably because I haven’t found the need for it yet!
I came to forget these ‘mumisms’ as Grace got bigger but now they have returned with a vengeance since having Rex – plus, with added ‘mum of boy’ sayings! The thing I find most prominent is ‘ Get that [insert type of toy here] off of your willy’ whilst changing his nappy. As a result, I asked some of my blogging chums to share some of the sayings that they use as a parent.
Sit back with a cuppa and enjoy the funny things you will say as a parent!
