“Poop is a very common conversation topic.” — Sierra S.

“No, I don’t want those free tickets to the game. I’m too tired and bloated.” —_ Stephanie S._

“I never thought I would say, ‘Because I said so,’ but now that my daughter is five years old and in the ‘Why?’ stage, I say it all the time.” — Lynette H.

“‘No, I’d rather go to bed’ — which pertains to many different things.” — Amy B.

“I’ve caught myself saying, ‘That’s not nice!’ to a driver who cut me off. In my pre-kids days I would have had a few choice other words.” — Dannielle B.

“Ahh, he just peed in my mouth!” — Amber M.

“My favorite comebacks are ‘That wasn’t an option’ and ‘Yeah? But what did I say?’ Emphasis on the ‘I.’
 — Ashley T.

“My husband and I always say we never thought we would be excited for poops and burps. Now we are.” — Elizabeth B.

“I call feet ‘tootsies’ and snacks ‘num nums.’” — Shantelle M.

“I say, ‘Just wait, one day you’ll have a kid just like you,’ to my three-year-old son all the time. My mom said it to me until he was born — now I understand and appreciate her more!” — Michelle S.

“No, don’t stick your finger up Momma’s nose.” — _Olivia S. _

“My dad’s common quote is: ‘You can never have anything nice with kids.’ Now it’s my own!” — Stacy D.
