Default Ridiculous but Necessary Things We Say

I think we've had this thread a few times before but it always tickles me. What things have/do you say, that if any (normal) person heard you say they might alert the proper authorities, but serve a definite purpose in your daycare?

I just said "The bunnies don't need to be punching anyone in the face. They need to be nice".

Dcg really needed to stop making the stuffed bunnies " punch" the other stuffies and DCB...but after I said it, I was like "What???"

I love this thread lol. I don't know that I can think of an amazing one just now, but one of my dcms always wants to know the strangest thing I have said each day. She always laughs and says "our days are so different!" She works in an office with adults lol

Not hilarious but funny things I say frequently:

"Not all babies are named Aubrey" (My dd is sure they all are )

"Superheros only fight outside"

"Friends don't poke friends in the eye"

"Only Ms. Chaos smells booties"

"You have eaten enough rolly pollys today"

"Tooting on command is not a super power"

...there are sooo many

I like this thread!
  • "We don't shoot our friends."
  • "Can you eat your worms?" [aka pasta]
  • "If you want to talk about poop, then you have to go to the bathroom."
  • "Finger out of the nose, please."
  • "Did you paint his butt?" [referring to painting ceramic pigs]

Just today:

"Stay next to the toilet until you're finished wiping" (to the kid who walks into the kitchen to chat before wiping, with underwear down and bottom dirty)

"Please don't pee where everybody walks" (to the kid who responded to dcm's request to pee before heading home by peeing on the stone path to my door).

Get that out of the dog's ear
Get off of the dog, she isn't a horse
All babies are not named Ellie
Let go of the dog's tongue!
The gecko's name is A.L.A.B.A.S.T.E.R. (NOT b@st@rd)

Referring to playing with the mr. potato heads.
"I'm not putting his butt back on anymore."
And
You can't have all the pieces in your butt, the other kids needs pieces for theirs too" that just sounds sooooo wrong.

That reminds me of one. Once someone was crying over spilling their milk and I said the classic. "Don't cry over spilled milk."

He'll quit hitting your butt if you quit sticking it in his face

No, you cannot wipe your nose and your penis with the same piece of toilet paper

Stop chewing your toe nails at the table

Eat with your hands, not with your feet

Everybody get high! (said very loudly by 3 yo dck outside. He wanted everybody to climb up the play structure.)

Today's golden nuggets were:

"We don't cut friend's throats" (speaking to a 3 yr old who was chasing his friends outside with a plastic shovel saying he was going to cut their throat)

"Don't like the table/chair/your arm" (speaking to a 2 year old who has had a fascination with licking everything lately)

I have the cutest 1 year old dcb in my care. Yesterday while I was bending in the cabinet to grab a pan to make lunch, he kept trying to pull up the back of my shirt so he could blow on my "tummy"

He was so stinking cute and proud of himself but I did have to say "We can't blow on Mrs. K's belly!"

14 month old red haired girl
18 month lightest blond/white hair girl

lol! I think that's a good one too!

Once my husband and I took 5 daycare kiddos to see Santa Clause, we are both Caucasian, the daycare kiddos were, Filipino, Chinese, African American/Indian, Hispanic, and Hispanic/Caucasian. We got a lot of stares that day. Then one of Santas elves commented on how great it was that we would adopt all these children, and stated loudly "y'all are just like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie".
I just said "yeah, I know, right!"- I didn't have the time or patience to explain with all the screaming these Little ones were doing trying to get them on Santas lap!

I've taken to telling people "Let me tell you about our family's spiritual path to polygamy." Usually ends the conversation pretty quick.

"Please don't sit on the bathroom floor naked" Its really odd how many times I've said that recently! I think its because most of them are wearing shorts now, and they slip off.

"Well, if you would keep your fingers out of your nose you wouldn't have boogers on your hands!"

"Stop licking your toes! You are only doing it because I just told J to stop licking his!"

"Are you finished pooping yet?"

These were today......

A little off subject but still related to things said at daycare,

I put on Finding Nemo for the last 20 min of the day yesterday....
When in starts it shows scenes under the water and such
Dcb 3 says "that's a water table, that's a cool water table"
Dcg 2 says "no! That's not a water table, that's an OHHH-SH**"

it took me a second to realize she meant ocean

Default Don't try to throw up with those scissors

They are large on the ends for not getting stuck in throat.
Fixated on throwing up for a while, and tries to make self throw up by putting the doll scissors down throat.

After eating a big meal at lunch with seconds they the kids tell me the other threw up. I clear the room, grab the thermometer, I go to get the cleaning supplies.

I come back and
I said, "Don't try to throw up with those scissors"What are you doing?" "Why are you doing that if you don't want to throw up?" "That is going to make you throw up?"

We looked at eachother with silly but serious faces, like you know better than that.
