Listen up, ladies! This is a mom hack you’re going to want in your parenting toolbox.
Sometimes, when I’m having a frustrating day with the kids (which happens more than sometimes), I imagine saying the things I say to my kids…..to adults.
Did you get that?
MOM HACK: IMAGINE SAYING THE THINGS YOU SAY TO YOUR KIDS….TO ADULTS!
It really is as simple as that. And it’s the quickest way to crack a smile, relieve some stress, and get back into the mommin’ mood. Trust me!
Let’s go over some examples. Remember, the first time is to your child and the second time is - in your head! - to an adult...
Did you wipe your bum?
Remember to wash your armpits!
Underwear is not an outfit.
Stop picking your nose!
We don’t talk about our private parts in public.
I don’t want to come look at your poo!
Give me your device right now!
5…..4…...3…..2….don’t let me get to one!
Forcing out farts is a really bad idea.
(Yes, I've actually said all of these things....)
The next time you’re at your wits’ end, say what you need to and then imagine it again to an older audience. It works like a charm. I promise!
