    What catch phrase or popular phrase do you use all the time that family and friends associate you with? I use the phrase from the golden corral commercial all the time "The bird says no!" complete with pirate accent for my son when I tell him no. I've expanded it to include the dog, the horses etc when he keeps asking. He ends up giggling and tells me they say yes lol [​IMG]. I've even got my fiance' telling him no using the same phrase. My students also get included in whatever phrases I am using with my son, I can't tell you how many times I've asked them if they have their "handy dandy notebooks" etc, they get the picture real quick that I have a young child.

    "Chickens are our friends, not our food."

    "I don't have any patience...I'm not a doctor" (to my son when he was 8-10 ish)

    Ive made up songs for manners

    'May I have some please' going up the scale and down the scale (do re mi fa so)
    for example.
    Works like a charm. I find myself singing it to my SO as well [​IMG]

    Oh when I dont hear what my SO or kids say I sing that song:
    "Wha Wha What did you sayyyyy' from that Jason Derulo (sp?)

    I have two - if the kids answer some question with "I don't know." My response is "If you had a little brother do you think he'd know?" My dad used to say that one to us when we were kids. Of course, it only works if they don't have one - so you may need to change it to sister [​IMG]

    And then, when the kids fuss because I get some special privlege, say the last cookie in the box. I say "Hey, it's one of the perks of being the Mom. If there weren't perks, no one would take the job" [​IMG]

    "Life is full of tests." Especially when they meet an unexpected one.

    "Can't never could" when they tell me "I can't do X."

    I have tons but for the children....

    when they say "I want....." I say "well I want a million dollars so I guess neither of us is getting what we want"
  9. "If it's not yours, don't touch it!" Works for everything, dogs, candy, gross things on the ground, all the way through the teenaged years... apply it to my wallet, my daughter, etc."
