Top 10 Stupid Questions/Statements I say as a Parent

I catch myself saying saying some of the dumbest things to my kids at times. OK fine, it's more like once or twice a day. I think we all have these moments when we ask ourselves "Did I just say that?" There are some things that I say all the time that if my kids were older, they would have some good come backs. I have no doubt that my kids will be 3 little wise apples, after all the apple didn't fall from the tree right?  I thought I would make a top 10 list to amuse myself and I hope you too!

In no particular order...

Questions and Statements that my Kids Must Think are Stupid (And their thoughts)
  1. Do you want a spanking? (Why do they ask me this? In no universe that Kirk explored would I want a spanking?)
  2. Do you need a timeout? (Same as above)
  3. Why do you poop in your panties? (To piss you off, duh mom!)
  4. Are you stinky? (Why don't you come over here and find out? And do you really expect me to answer you, I'm only one?)
  5. Molly where is the computer mouse, remote, etc? (If I wanted you to find it, I wouldn't have hid it.)
  6. Who wants a snack? (Why does she ask us this, we always want a snack! That's why we break into the pantry and fridge.)
  7. Who wants to go outside? (Mom, we know that we go outside only when we are driving you crazy. Quit acting like it's for us)
  8. No playing in the trash! (But it's fun.)                                                                                                                   
  9. Sit down in the tub! (Why can't I stand in the tub? I can stand everywhere else, what's the big deal?)
  10. Do you need to go potty? (I just told you no, why do you keep asking me?)

So did I miss any of your stupid questions or statements?


  1. LOL, I can so relate! I'm always asking 'Is it time for a nap?' They pretty much just laugh at me and continue running round like headless chickens.
    Makes me laugh when I say 'Wait 'til your daddy gets home', it's a complete cop out but by then they have driven me crazy and I can't think of anything else to say or do!

  2. Tonight I said to my kids, "Please don't splash all of the bath water out of the tub!" To which I'm sure they thought, "Ok, we'll just splash most of it out then." I have no idea what I was thinking.

  3. I say most of those plus:
    What did you say? (why can't you understand me, you did teach me how to speak and all...)
