Things you say that make you realise you're a Bad Mum!

So, I was in the kitchen unpacking the dishwasher this morning, when I look over and see 17 month old DD with something shiny in her hands.
In my mummy, happy voice I simply say:

"MiniBigFatGoalie, please give Mummy the knife..."

In my defence it was only a butter knife blush, but I suddenly realised if ANYBODY else had heard me say that they'd be tempted to call SS!
it did not happen twice...

Can I ask what sentences you've said to your DC lately that make you think, bloody hell I sound like a bad mother?!

If anybody had heard me in the garden when dd2 was about two; "come here you little shit!" blush

In my defence she was being a little turd and I wasn't well. I can still remember now what an awful day that was, topped off by my swearing at my two year old outside where the whole road must have heard me. sad

These aren't examples of being a bad mum, they are examples of children being revolting little beggars <irrationally irritated>

"leave him alone! he's not a toy!" to ds1 about ds2.

Today I had to tell my son (2 years old)not to lick the Wheelie Bin.

I think the dog is an influence..

ilovemydog I told mine to fuck off and leave me alone once. It was 11pm, we had to be up at 6 to go to work/nursery, DP was being a cunt and I was pg with DS2. They hadn't gone to sleep, they'd trashed their bedrooms etc.

I still feel fucking ashamed as I shouted it. Since that day though it's never gotten that bad again.

TheNightIsDark Wed 22-Jan-14 21:44:48

I can't believe I admitted that. I think I need to nc.

No .....No.... No................No sweets until you finish your crisps blush

DS leave my nipple alone, I was in bed with nothing on the top half and 1/2 asleep.

HellsGranny Wed 22-Jan-14 21:54:48

Leave Betty's (the cat) bum alone...

Stop licking the baby! Why do they do that? So glad it's not just mine...

Is that sand yum? I'd given in trying to stop him eating the sand pit after the 1000th mouthful and resorted to taking pictures whilst local yummy mummies looked on in horror. All good roughage I say wink

When we go to soft play or toddler groups I tell my 2 yo DS "no fighting, no biting, no hitting, no spitting" which is just a little jokey rhyme but if anyone heard me they'd think he was a little terror!!

DoJo Wed 22-Jan-14 22:02:22

Is that a screw you're eating, or a floor snack?

MrsBobHale Wed 22-Jan-14 22:04:18

"No you can't have an apple until you've finished that chocolate fudge cake!"

Background - I was sick of her asking for food then not eating it and immediately wanting something else.

Please don't eat gravel darling
We don't lick the buggy
And my personal fave that got me great looks at the baby group when paint may have got eaten- well at least it's non toxic.

jeanmiguelfangio Wed 22-Jan-14 22:06:00

Dojo I am so glad others have floor snacks!!

BigFatGoalie Wed 22-Jan-14 22:10:23

That's a fly, not a raisin...
Must sweep the floors more often

RalphGnu Wed 22-Jan-14 22:11:19

TheNightIsDark, I may have done that too.

TheFutureMrsB Wed 22-Jan-14 22:12:45

No, no, we don't lick cars do we ds3.

A regular thing said until he was about 3!!! And it wasn't even our car, it was any car in the street!

"We don't share biscuits with the pigeons" - was literally retching after she wrestled it back from a group busily pecking away after she dropped half on the station floor. Dang she got it into her mouth fast! <boak>

KateSpade Wed 22-Jan-14 22:43:19

Whist on the phone, having a very serious conversation

'NO! they are not sweets, they is medicines'

'Put them down NOW'

'Stop wining'

Just as i had arrived at work, Nursery rang to say DD had a temperature of 39.8 and could i come and pick her up.

Dd said to me yesterday "mummy why are you stopping me from sharing?" Which made me feel/ look bad.

Queenofthehill Wed 22-Jan-14 23:01:03

TheNightIsDark, I love your honesty. I am sure I have paraphrased that one. Lord knows I've felt it :-D
