Okay… nothing earthy shaking is on my mind to post today. Can I just air a pet peeve???

Ahem…my dear family—especially my offspring—would you STOP speaking in pronouns?!?!?!

“Hey mom….what is this?” (spoken to me from around the corner. I cannot see what you are holding in your hand, sweet child. TELL me what this is!!!)

“Moooom…..who put that there?” (What where? I do not have eyes in the back of my head!!! Use a real word. A noun or two perhaps. Like…”Who put my baseball glove on the coffee table?”)

“Hey…he cannot do that. Tell him to stop!” (Again spoken from a room away. Which him is him? What in tarnation is HE doing?)

Please….you children are killing me here. Contrary to popular belief, we moms cannot see all and know all. That is God’s job.

STOP using pronouns please!!!!

Rant over.

Pronoun-protesting blessings,


(See—isn’t that annoying. It should say Karen, not HER!!!)

  • How funny! My husband and I are retired, and he calls from another room, “What is this in here?” Too old to “retrain”him, just get up and see what he’s talking about. (I count steps as part of my exercise,so this adds up!)

  • Oh how I remember those days????. My children are grown now with babies of their own. Cherish these times, it gives us all something to smile about. God in His infinite wisdom keeps us connected with similar experiences!
