Today  I thought I'd share somethings I've had to say to Grant lately that I think only moms of boys can relate least I'm hoping I don't have to say some of these things to Hannah....

1. Did you change your underwear?

2. If I look in the hamper will I see dirty underwear on top?

3. You can be a ninja after dinner, come eat.

4. Please take your game of football outside... (after toppling everything on the sofa table)

5. Flush the toilet (said eighty times a day)

6. Sit down at the table, please.

7. Please put your sister down (as he tries to dance around the room carrying her)

8. No, you didn't brush your teeth. Go brush your teeth.

9. Where are your shoes????

10. Please take your mask off at the table.

11. Please stop jumping, bouncing, climbing on the furniture, bed, chair, counter, table.....
