What are you tired of saying over and over?

I'm copying this from my moms group board.
Here are some of mine:

No pinchie! That hurts mama.

Gentle, GENTLE with the kitty!

Owie. We don't bite when we kiss.

Jake! No Bailey. No, Dylan. Crap, which one are you?

Dylan, get in the crate NOW! :oops: (another name confusion one, we don't actually crate our child.)

Would you like to eat that banana or just stuff it in your cheeks?

No, diaper stays on the butt.

    Solomon looooooves books and goes through phases where each one is his favorite and he'll make me read it over and over and over and over again. I could quote them all here (from memory) but I'll spare you all :lol:

    Oh my too many to name. But I'll try.

    No running in the house
    Indoor voices
    No jumping on the couch
    Go to bed
    Stop playing in the toilet
    Put your clothes back on.
    Get your hands out of your pants.
    stay out of mommy's room

    I gotta ask, any other kids act like you're punishing them when you ask them to go play in their room filled with boxes and boxes of toys?

    Mostly, I'm sick of being ignored. But here's my short list:

    No food in the living room.
    Don't do that to the baby, he's a real person.
    Pick up the mess in the living room.
    Get off the couch! (That one's for the dog)
    Take that out of your mouth (the 7 year old or the dog)
    No bite! (see other thread)

    We don't bite/we don't hit. Nice touches.

    Don't hit the kitty. Nice touches.

    Sit down please. We don't stand in the chair.

    We don't eat/drink/touch that. Yucky.

    *Be nice to the dog, put the dog down, be gentle with the dog, etc, etc, etc (I swear, he thinks the dog is a stuffed animal)

    *Pick up your toys, it's time to clean up now, etc,
    etc, etc

    *When you can speak without whining/crying/yelling, mommy will talk to you

    *Please sit down/stop fidgeting/stop playing and eat your food

    And the one I repeat all the time for my sake:

    Oh yes, this is familiar!!

    What do you want? Use your words!

    Don't put that in your mouth! (The reply is, "Mmmmm, food!" even if it's, say, a ballpoint pen.)

    No, that is not YOUR iPod.

    Don't put your pony/Barbie in the potty!

    Mama doesn't want to listen to Mamma Mia/Umbrella/Don't Stop the Music again. Mommy wants a different song.

    I loved that phase. I think I read Goodnight Moon about a billion times. Sniff.

    What, they are supposed to grow out of this phase?? Why am I still reading Goodnight Moon at least 3 times every night? Our copy even has "Newborn to Age 3" written on the back and I've tried to convince Karan that he is too old for it now.

    I'm currently saying too often:

    "Leave the blinds alone!"
    "Stop poking your sister!"
    "Quiet voice!" (usually I'm yelling it)
    "Please talk to me in a big boy voice"

    Going to the library has really helped to get us out of the "read the same book over and over and over" rut.
    He gets to pick out 3 new books every few weeks to read at bedtime. The older books go into hiding :wink: and he's usually so excited about the new books that he forgets about them for a while. Once we've read those about a hundred times, it's back to the library for new ones.

    Before S REALLY started talking, she would bring me books and we'd read them over and over, then we'd go through them and point to things and it could go on for ages. Then one day she was just OVER that and it's all about move, move, move, move. She's just now starting to sit still for books again.

    Right now I'm saying, "Stop touching. Don't touch. Why are you touching that. Stop. STOP. STOP TOUCHING STOP TOUCHING STOP TOUCHING!!!" She is just so into EVERYTHING all the time, it's like she has fifteen hands. As soon as I ask her to stop touching one thing, she's on to something else.

    I'm trying this now. But apparently library books are for reading during the day, and at bedtime it still has to be Goodnight Moon. And I have to *read* it not recite it. He'll notice that I'm looking away and say "No, No, No, you have to look at the words!".

    DS has just started recognizing sight words, and so that brings repetition to a whole new excruciating level.

  • fuzzbucketfuzzbucket Posts: 996Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    Harry likes the same books over and over too. Lately, he takes MY finger and points to everything so I will say what it is. Sometimes I catch him reading by himself pointing and saying, "dadoo, dadoo, dadoo" (not really talking yet).

    As far as what I'm tired of saying?

    Feet on the floor!
    No climbing!
    Feet first! (for climbing down from things)
    Slow down!
    Sit on your bum! (in the tub, on the bed, etc.)
    We don't hit!

    I know there is more, but Mama's tired.

    As for my most over-played phrase right now... "No, don't spit. Nice boys don't spit...!"

    But then he smiles and almost-laughs (he's not exactly all-out laughing yet), and I break down and smile and laugh in return.

    I never knew three month old's blew bubbles, spit, and got a kick out of it! :lol:

    my kids have been getting more outside in the fenced backyard alone time so these are mine:

    - don't eat the dog food
    - stop throwing chairs off the fort
    - the bat is for balls not for people
    - leave daddy's tractor alone
    - don't sit in the mud, squat
    - don't eat the dog food
    - respect your brother's body

    and inside the house if I never have to say, "stop saying MINE" again I will be a happy woman.

    "Get DOWN!"
    "Stop hitting the TV"
    "Get DOWN"
    "SIT down"
    "Get DOWN!"
    "SIT on your hiney"
    "We do NOT throw our toys"

    "Are you eating dogfood?! COME HERE NOW! OPEN UP! <insert fingers> <fish out 1415 pounds of dogfood>
    (We keep our dog food on the other side of teh babygate in the laundry room. However, our dog refuses to eat his food from his bowl and prefers to dump it out on the floor to eat it for some random strange reason. That is where my little one sticks his fingers through to get dogfood)

    "Get OUT of the dishwasher!"
    "Get DOWN!"

    Sisa, how long has he been doing it? Lydia went through a blowing-bubbles phase where she did it constantly for a week or two, and then it went into her repertoire of things she does sometimes, and she was on to her next obsession.

    Here, other than "gentle" and "let go, please," we're basking in the sit-her-down-and-she-stays-there age. You all are giving me a lot to look forward to! ;-)

    another one i forgot:
    your belly button is still there.

    majerle is obsessed with her belly button due to a new book we're reading. i guess since she never knew it was called anything she wasnt so worried about it. but she religiously checks her belly button multiple times a day. and if shes wearing a onesie/bodysuit/footed pajamas she claws at it to make sure its stll there.

    Oh I remember this phase! Saliva would just pour down Karan's mouth. It was just disgusting.

    But then, at his 3 month doctor's appointment I learned that that blowing bubbles is actually a developmental milestone. Not being able to do it might indicate a neurological problem.

    So spit, baby, spit!
