5 Unusual Things We Have Had to Ask Our Children to Stop Saying

The following is an incomplete list of things that my husband and I have had to ask our children to stop saying in the past month or so due to either repetition or content.

1) “fancy getup”

Wylie Dufrense

Wylie Dufrense

2) Wylie Dufrense

3) “a-s-s”

He was just spelling it over and over. I have no idea why. I mean, I know why, I just don’t know why he wouldn’t stop. We also had to ask him to stop signing it.

4) Obi-Wan Kenobi

5) diarrhea

  1. Oh I hear ya.

    Kinda crushing on number 4 though. I want to say it.

    I had to beg Boo to stop asking people if their tentacles had dropped yet. No, he had no idea what he was saying.

  2. On a related note, my husband and I often look at each other to say, “That’s a phrase I never thought I’d say.” Such as, “Yes, green poop is dirty. All poop is dirty.”

    Parenting, there’s never a dull moment.

  3. Yeeeeah….feeling it. Our She-Twin gave our He-Twin the strong arm over the weekend and said, “Leave me alone, you Dumb-A**.” Nice. Declares she learned it from JibJab. Ooops.

  4. It was the comment after #3 that made me laugh so hard, I spit oatmeal. Thanks.

  5. It’s the fancy getup that’s killing me. I can’t stop laughing picturing them walking around saying that. It’s not random people they say this to is it?

    My 7yr old said I was crazy and I said where do you think I got if from and he says very firmly and with conviction, Chicago!

  6. Wylie Dufresne … Wylie Dufresne … Wylie Dufresne … It’s irresistible!

  7. a-s-s it IS fun to spell out loud. dammit.

  8. From my house, I can add:

    1. poop (and all it’s many variations)
    2. mama mia
    3. douchebag/d-bag/giant d-bag
    4. THE LIGHT IS GREEN!! (usually followed by #3)
    5. Good idea, bad idea

  9. That would be hard in our house…our beagle’s name is ObiWan Kenobi. :)

  10. Justin keeps saying “Gee Whiz”. I don’t know why.

  11. Last year we disallowed “Vagina” because our younger son kept repeating “I live in the state of Vagina” and “Vagina is for lovers.” His main purpose in the repetition was to drive his older brother insane.

    His brother fought back with continual beat boxing. Which I had to ban because it was driving me insane.

    The founding fathers of “Virginia”should have tested the name on a group of 8 year olds. And I will never forgive Blake Lewis. Ever.

  12. My $.02 –

    “Stupid” (which is really hard to stop saying… just try it)
    “Dummy” and/or “Dummyhead”
