WELCOME to the June 2018 “You’re the Star” Blog Hop!
Before we continue onto the Linky party I wanted to share from my blog:
Do you remember when you were young? There was a big list of things your parents said to you. They got under your skin so much that you promised yourself you’d never say them to your own children! But, eventually, when you got older and you had children of your own, you found you may or may not have been able to follow through with those promises.
When you were trying to understand some great mystery of life, you heard, “You’ll understand when you’re older.”
When you were playing the funnest game you had ever devised, it was always, “Don’t jump on the bed!” Or, “Clean up that mess!”
Then, you were presented with an awful-looking mish-mash of turnips, parsnips, and brussell sprouts, and you heard the dreaded words, “You have to try it.”
Then, there was always the infamous, “Because I said so!” Which, of course, was good for any occasion!
This is just a partial list of things that I promised my future children I would never say. I can say with all honesty today, that every single one of those phrases has escaped from my mommy lips. But, far more disturbing is a different list of phrases that I started collecting through my parenting experiences on a farm. I say a lot of things in response to situations I never thought would come up…I can’t make this stuff up! Some are funny, some are sad. Some will leave you scratching your head. How on earth did that situation arise??? Well, I’m not sure! But, here it is…my list of things I never thought to say I’d never say.
WELCOME to GARDEN feature week of the June 2018 “You’re the STAR” blog hop!
