*Eat your dinner.
*Stop bugging each other.
*Don’t lie on top of each other in the bathtub.
*Did you wash? Did you use soap? (I believe I’ve said this one every day for the last 11 years).
*Pleeeeeaaaase stop whining.
*Don’t put that in your mouth.
*Yes, you have to brush your teeth.
*Because I’m the Mom.
And yes, I know my parents are smiling, even laughing, about this. It’s poetic justice.
And someday, I’ll get mine.
