Things I have said to my child that didn't sound so good once they were out there:
- "Please don't be a carpet licker." (And since I was writing a mass e-mail newsletter at the time, I told all my friends and family that my 6 month old daughter was being a carpet licker.)
- "Go play with yourself in your room."
- "It's nice to share your balls with others."
- "Once it's in your mouth, you have to swallow. It's not nice to spit."
And you thought I was a mature grown-up!
