"Brush your teeth"
"Rinse your mouth"
"And use some water" and "don't forget to wash out that sink when you're done"
"Before you get ice cream I need to see all this stuff off the floor"
"Put your folder in your bag for tomorrow"
"And your pencil case"
"You forgot these dirty socks on this floor"
"See if you took more than one thing at a time you, wouldn't have to keep coming back"
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH
The words that chimed into my head and echoed mommy voice were
"put these movies back in their case"
"don't touch that ice cream again"
"touch it before these movies are put up and I'm gonna let it sit there and melt"
Notice how there is only my voice. Man, was I on it. Oh well, she'll be a better person for it. Needless to say, she is now tucked tightly in her comfy bed with an ice cream filled belly and I am not sliding across the floor on DVDs. Tomorrow it starts again. Guess I need to wear my badge. I love being a mom.
