What I Meant to Say Wednesday




Chief at Hiding From the Kids has a new game to play on Wednesdays. It's called what I Meant to Say. It works like this:
To Nick--when I said "Sure the basement arrangement is fine,"
What I meant to say was:
"Nope this so doesn't work for me, but if you like it OK."

Or:
To Turbo--"Give you brother some space!"
What I meant to say was:
"Back the heck away from your brother, he's not a doll you can pose or smother!"

Or:
To Mom--"Uh, sure we can help you with those repairs."

What I meant to say was:
"We barely have the time to do our own home repairs and if we help you it is a never ending litany of things that need doing at your house and why do you think we need to do those things for free when, if you find any charity case off the street, you gladly pay them to do the same things?"

Or:
To Turbo--"We'll See."
What I menat to say was:
"No."

It's a fun way to get those annoying things off your chest. So grab the button above and go play. Confession is good for the soul or something like that.

Yes, my children have no concept of personal space. Good thing the babies are tough or they'd never survive.

I hate saying yes cuz i should, but deep down i wanna say no!

"We'll see" is always no in my language too!

The truth feels good... even if it's just a blog post! Haha! Lots of great "what I meant to say".

Oh geez....my parents drive me nuts too!! I hope my boys don't feel the same way about me when I get old.....or by next week for that matter.

Haha. I always use "we'll see" when I really mean "no" and I don't want to deal with the whining.
