Weird things parents have said …

A list of weird things parents have said


Obviously I said some pretty weird things before there were children living in my house but since I’ve become a parent there seems to be no end to the ridiculous things I hear myself say.

Most of this things fall into the category of ‘so obvious you’d think they’d never need to be uttered’ – like “don’t eat with your feet!” – while others are normally the result of toys meeting reality – “get that elephant out of your sister’s face”.

Whatever the reason – they are hilarious!

Check out some of the ridiculous things parents have said … the first few came out of my own surprised mouth and the rest are courtesy of our, no-doubt, equally baffled Bub Hub Facebook followers.

Some weird stuff parents have said …

“Would you get that airplane off my head!”

“You’ll get pear when you’re wearing pants”

“Who left their sandwich in my shoe?”

“Why are there cars in the freezer?”

“Get your foot off your sandwich”

“We do not do wees on ants, we do them on the toilet”

“Do you see mummy running around outside naked? NO! Get some clothes on”

“Get the potato head off the table it’s dinner time”

“How many times do I have to say it? Get the snake out of your nose!”

“Get your fingers out of your bum”

“No thank you, no mud for dinner”

“Sit on Elmo and don’t move”

“Does Superman need to do a pee on the toilet?”

“She’s not a pillow. She’s your sister!”

“No, your bullet train does not need a drink of milk!”

“I don’t want the dinosaur to eat the spaghetti!”

“That’s Daddy’s water – don’t let the hippo drink it!”

“Toast is NOT a car”
