Thanks Mom, I Can Feel the Love.

I hear this pretty often at my house from my first three kids. I am pretty sure # 1 coined the phrase, but # 3 uses it most often . He even gets more dramatic at times and says:

"Thanks Mom, I can feel ALL the love."

This usually comes after a pretty innocent comment from me such as,

"When was the last time you washed your hair?"


"Maybe you should get into the habit of changing your socks before AND after school"


"Go brush your teeth"

Number 1 might use it after something like:

Me:"Get off the computer"
Rach: "Why"
Me: "Because I'm pretty sure you haven't done your homework yet"

"Thanks Mom, I can feel the love."

This phrase usually catches me off guard and always makes me laugh. Usually because I just don't realize I am being rude! How sad is that? Leave it to the kids to put me in my place...

4 people know I love comments!:

I don't think you are being rude--just being a mom! I make those kind of requests all the time.

I do try to take John Bytheway's advice and have some talking time with NO purpose (advice, information giving, etc.)!

Ok I'm going to start using that phrase! You are so funny! My phrase with my kids is something like, Kid: "why do you always make us do so many chores?"
Me: "because I'm the meanest mom ever and I'm trying to ruin your life!"
Hee hee hee!

That is hilarious. My 12 yr old thinks everything that comes out of my mouth is either rude or I'm mad. Wonder why that is?
