Not To Be Rude But...

Okay, am I the ONLY one tired of hearing sentences start with "Not to be rude but...?" Because the person IS going to be rude.

I told my MIL this and she said her unfavorite phrase is "thinking outside the box".

What's yours?
I snuck into bed Sunday night and sprawled out. Heaven.

Within two minutes, the hallway light was on. Sammy peeked into the bedroom and saw me. His eyes lit up.

"Can I sweep wif you?"

"Do I have a choice?"


He got into bed with me only to start complaining his toenail was bugging him. When he started biting it, I took him to the bathroom to clip it.

We laid back down.

Then I noticed he didn't smell very good.

So we got up and gave him a military wash, clean shirt and underwear.

We laid down again.

Then he wanted my arm around him. The kid is about as big around as a drinking straw so I always feel like I'm going to crush him.

I gingerly put my arm around him. He was happy and went to sleep.

How I love that boy.

Nothing like little boy snuggles :)

I don't like "think outside the box," either. Or "be proactive."

Oh, enjoy the snuggles while he still wants to. That time passes too quickly...

"Having said that..."

and anytime someone uses a noun as a verb - 'impact' and 'transition' spring to mind. makes me nuts.

i admit to loving one of my guys sleeping with me. they're cuddly.

I have many of those moments. I have to remind myself how much I will miss it someday. But they are sweet arent they? I wish I got that much joy out of ANYTHING! Cute.

My least favorite phrase of the day? "Just let it go...."

I despise "It is was it is"
I'm sure I've even used it a time or two but still,that one irks me!

I love how people have no clue that using the word but,just negates whatever it is you're going to say.
Like in the phrase you hate and in the phrase No offense but..

Aww cuddle time with your sweet boy. What could be better?? Nothing:)

"Just.. Relax"

By the same token

For some reason
Cool Beans
is really starting to bug me.

One great thing about our little ones, Caro, is that they are little longer. I can still carry youngest around if I want to, he still snuggles all the time, and he is still smoochable. I bet in a year or two some of that will be gone.

Bearette - Little boy snuggles are the best. Proactive makes me think of acne commercials. Thank you for the deodorant link.

Paula - I enjoy them very much. You're right, they grow up too fast.

Babelbabe - Hee. I'll have to start using "Having said that" in my blog, just for you.

GingersMom - Yeah, what if I don't want to let it go?

Ms. L - Yes my MIL said that instead of saying not to be rude but, people should just say to be rude. LOL

Smart Ash - Damn you sound stressed. Just relax, would ya?

Mscellania - I've never heard cool beans. Sammy can take his time growing up for sure.

Boy, you must be really sexy for your son to want to sleep with you. You must be hotsy totsy, yes indeed.

Old Hoss - No, I'm just soft and fluffy, like a pillow.

Chris - YOU'RE BACK!

Mine are violent snugglers. They lure you with a peaceful lull, but next thing you know, they are trying to put their legs between your ribs.

I dislike: "You know what I was thinking?..."

If I have not asked you up until this point, the stakes are that I probably don't care.


Miss C hasn't moved out of my bed yet and hates to share me with anyone. I loathe it sometimes, but when she is over at her grandma's I miss her snuggles.

Moments to be treasured and savoured...

And my least favourite phrase is/ well, it's more someone finishing your sentence... I hate that....
Just hate it...
Let the person finish their thought...
And then empathize...or sympathize... but let them finish their idea, thought or suggestion...

Joke - Have you been talking to my husband? He wakes up with aching back from leg in ribs all the time.

Mary - Ha, I love your pet peeve comment. Isn't it funny how you want your bed back but miss them when they're gone.

Pendullum - That's one nice thing about blogging. Nobody can finish your sentences for you.
