    “If it’s not yours, don’t touch it.”

  6. Erin says...

    All so accurate. She seems to speak for many of us.

  7. Jam says...

    Oh wow, do I feel seen. Said them all this week.

  10. Shan says...

    Replace cookies with chips and it’s definitely all of the above over here!

  11. Katrin says...

    Number 2 makes me feel so called out, lol! No alarm, but yes, „just five minutes more“, and who am I even kidding?!

  12. Abby says...

    When my daughter was two and a half, she loved being read to. One day she was demanding that I read to her, so I said, “What’s the magic word?” And without missing a beat, she shouted, “Abracadabra Mommy READ TO ME!” I mean…she did say the magic word.

  13. Mallory says...

    These are all so eerily accurate!! I feel seen and attacked at the same time!

    • Nicola says...

      Haha! Me too! I say “Let’s go for a walk” and I mean “I NEED TO GO OUTSIDE OR I WILL LOSE MY MIND!”

  14. riye says...

    My mom’s most frequent line “What are you doing?” = “STOP RIGHT NOW.”

    I think I’ve finally mastered the tone because it works on our cat!

    • Sarah says...

      My mom’s was “You see with your eyes, not with your hands.” Aghhhh I hated it as a little kid, and now I catch myself saying it all the time.

  15. AMK says...

    Hahahah 💯🎯on the “5 minute” alarm 😂

  16. ls says...

    Here’s a big one from my childhood:
    “We’ll see.” ====> “No.”

    • Alicia says...

      I say “We’ll see” to my daughter all the time and she responds “But Mom! That means no!” Spot on.

    • Allison says...

      I have straight up told my small people that “we’ll see” really means “no, but I’m not in the mood to deal with the ensuing temper tantrum right now”

  17. Heather says...

    So busted on the 5 minute alarm. hahaha

    • Maryann says...

      Same!

    • Sarah says...

      Yep! My girls know “a few more minutes” really means 15-20 more minutes of screen time. Lol. It is so quiet and peaceful.

  18. Agnès says...

    A mouse has eaten the bread… again.

  19. Preeti says...

    Started binging on chocolates post motherhood. I don’t know for sure if that’s causation or correlation :)

  20. Rita says...

    The last one is my truest one!!! I have to get outside, or else.

    • Alexandra says...

      Right?! I am the only one in my family though who does it voluntarily …

  21. Emily says...

    Could not be more accurate!

  22. Erin in AZ says...

    I totally ate all the cookies last night after bedtime…

    • Jill says...
