Things I say at least 34 times a day.

Having a mobile, independent, curious child makes for a sore throat. Here are common, very common, too common phrases I say at least 30 to 40 times a day.

Bring your food back into the kitchen. We eat in the kitchen. Put your bowl back on the table. Wait, don't pour your food on the floor - food stays inside the bowl. Come back into the kitchen.

Sit down in the tub. You might fall if you stand up. Sit down. Sit down.

Don't touch the toilet. It is dirty. Don't touch. Dirty. Don't touch.

And so on... I feel like a broken record. But I read somewhere you have to say things about 500 times for them to sink in to the toddler brain. Here's to many more repetitive days!
