  1. What a great list and I have said at least 50% of them. Funny what we say. x

  2. That’s hilarious! and so true. It’s worse for me, I’m a teacher as well as having two small children. I spent every day warning children of the various dangers of life and I sound like a broken record, “watch that door, listen first time, say sorry, well done, that’s it….” on and on! Great post.x

  3. Oh, all that sounds SO familiar! Especially the ” We’re leaving after Peppa Pig. Oh OK, THIS Peppa Pig!” We time the school run by it on Milkshake, lol – if we’ve started watching the 2nd Peppa Pig episode then it’s time to move our bums out of the door!
    That wine bit at the end of the day sounds strangely familiar too, lol ….. 🙂

    Only 50% Susan?! You sure!

    I feel like a broken record sometimes!

    J x

  5. Super Mummy says:

    Wow, bet its magnified infinitely as a teacher! Ever been tempted just to record yourself and hit ‘play’ when it all gets to much? It all goes in one ear and out the other anyway!

    Thanks for commenting x

  6. Super Mummy says:

    Ha Wendy! We joined up with the school walking bus this morning instead of driving and I actually commented to one of the mums that we should have left after the first Peppa Pig then we wouldn’t have been rushing quite so much – she knew exactly what I meant!

    Thanks for dropping in x

  7. Brilliant!! That’s the best thing I have read today. I can say hand on heart that pretty much all you say I say too. Everyday. The fighting, the puddles, the tap of water running, the FOOD, the games on the phone, the bedtime story… OMG you have a special thing to read my brain or you spied on me!

  8. Super Mummy says:

    Jeez. You sussed me. Out there spying on mummas across the nation!

    Thanks for lovely comment! X

  9. Very funny. Am beginning to wonder if I can get all this stuff pre-recorded so I can just hit a button to play correct phrase at appropriate time and save myself actually just wasting my breath.

  10. Super Mummy says:

    Good thinking Laura. Maybe I could invent that and pair it up with my ‘mumma spying’ device which led to the content of this blog post? Demand would be HUGE!

    Thanks for your comment.

  11. Love it and I too say the lot. The two missing which we say ALL the time in our house are ‘Pardon. It’s not whaaaat, it’s pardon.’ and ‘Don’t talk with your mouth full.’ Brilliant post.

  12. Super Mummy says:

    Good additions! I also forgot to add ‘more, what?’
    ‘more, PLEASE.’
