If I could make a button, which would repeat a key phrase to prevent me from uttering it ONE.MORE.TIME
the button would either say
"Please use your walking feet"
"Please tell Mommy if you need to go potty."
I really can't decide which one I say more often, but each are somewhere in the neighborhood of 1295766252 times a day.
Shortly followed by:
Please don't throw/bounce/kick that in the house.
Please use your big boy/girl voice.
Please wash your hands.
Please go get a Kleenex
Please do not put that in your mouth.
Please give the baby some room to breathe.
I feel like you are going to want to write this down. I did when someone suggested it to me.
So now I'm on a quest.
Which broken-record-phrase can I conquer, um I mean redirect, next?
Watch out, team,. this coach has a new strategy.
