My ‘Mumisms’. The top ten phrases that I overuse as a Mummy.


  1. 1Don’t put that in your mouth. That is not for licking. Did you eat that stamp?
  2. GET DOWN….(seriously, is he part ninja..?)
  3. You pooed where?!
  4. Put on your shoes. Take off your shoes. Where are your shoes? Stupid shitty shoes..(The last part is under my breath).
  5. Now we have to go apologise to the neighbours.
  6. Raspberries are not an appropriate response.
  7. Why can’t you just listen?! (Oh god I have turned into my own mum).
  8. If you do this I will give you a treat. Yes that is a bribe. No it’s not illegal if it’s with smarties.Where did you learn about bribes??!
  9. Don’t ask me WHY. The answer is NO. (And I can’t think the reason).
  10. I love you to the moon and back. (I love you more than you can know. I am so bloody glad its bedtime, I need a cup of tea. I hope I am doing ok).

Most of these you may say from sitting on the toilet with your head in your hands.

    Aha, I recognise a few of these! And of course the classic ‘Just you wait until your dad gets home!’ Feels like I’m turning into my mum sometimes x

    Hahaha! Love this. I use a few of these too. Also the older the kids are getting the more I’m saying things under my breath.

    Haha!! No.9 is getting more difficult with the 10 and 12 year olds, they’re not quite as easy to manipulate! Haha. 🙂

      I think once mine hits 10 the only thing I will have left in my repertoire is bribery! 🙂

    Jade, have had a nose at your blog and will continue to do so. Afraid I can relate to your mumisms, but they are auntyisms in my case. Best bit is, funny observations but you know they are so true. Happy writing!
