I was originally thinking that I would just accumulate a list and make one post, but it seems that this will be something I add to continuously. Open mouth. Insert foot.
- “Sometimes we have to wait. This is a valuable life lesson.” ~ Said to V when attempting to explain the need for patience. As the words came out of my mouth, I was simultaneously thinking, “Really?! You’re using the phrase ‘valuable life lesson’ with a 5-year-old?! Epic. Fail.”
- “Wow. That’s some impressive farting.” ~ Said to N in response to his commenting that he woke himself up the night before with his own farts.
- “I believe this is the part of the conversation where you say ‘Thank you,’ and I say ‘You’re welcome.'” ~ Comment to N who was being a little grumpy. Perhaps sarcasm is not the best way to instill manners…
