Top 5 Reasons you should limit your Toddlers' exposure to your Teenagers

5)Your teenager will insist on calling your toddler "Fitty Cent" . For a while it's cute (hell you even made jokes about it) but then you realize he's begun to tell everyone his name is Fitty Cent, which will cause you to have to launch in to an explanation of a story that typically has people horrified and wondering why you are making light of it.

4)Your toddler will overhear a jokingly sarcastic interaction between teenager and Dad in which teenager asks father to get something for her. Dad asks teenager what the magic word is and teenager says "Now" (rather than the expected "please"). Your toddler will save that in her memory bank for the next time she asks Dad to get her milk. But when your toddler does it she will put her own spin on it and scream "NOW".

3)Your teenager's obsession with WWE will have your toddlers running around shouting John Cena at the top of their lungs because teenager thinks it's funny and requests it all the time.

2)You will find yourself becoming a broken record continually repeating the phrase "Your little sister and brother look up to you, please set a good example for them". It will always fall on deaf ears. You'll sigh in frustration.

and the number one reason to limit your toddlers exposure to your teenagers

1) When you ask your toddler if he needs a jacket for the day so he doesn't get cold he'll respond "Dude,I'm fine with nothing"

"Dude, I'm fine with nothing." LOL!

Yes, my own toddler comes up with some pretty amazing stuff that I know she's learned from her teen aged siblings too.

When I was a teenager, I tought my brother and sister WAY worse stuff than that!

I'd give a "haha" here, but now THEY are teenagers teaching MY kids stuff. :(

The *greatest* is the Eye-Roll. Mmmmhmmm.

Thank you for linking John Cena ... for the life of me, I couldn't figure out what WWE stood for.

I know, I'm a little behind the times.

Girl, sweet new digs, I obviously haven't been around for a while.
I'm still convinced five year olds are a worse influence, or my husband.

Oh hey, I meant to say I love your new look!

Thanks for the laugh! My 3 year old has said some lines that I've been surprised by. I claim he got them from preschool. Not from watching TV or anything!

You may want to limit your toddler's exposure to me too. I would probably be guilty of 5 and 1. Dude...I'm from california. Dude is a regular part of my regular vocabulary.

Seriously, he said Dude? Funny!

And I love your new site's digs!

teenagers are dangerous and should only be administered in small dosages.

That is HILARIOUS! A friend of mine's daughter told her parents about the "F You" move she saw on the WWE.....talk about proud! :)

hahahahaha....oh my goodness. Fitty cent and dude I'm fine with nothing cracks me up!! I'm really gonna have to start being careful soon. I call my hubby dude all of the time and I've been known to drop the F bomb. I could just see my lil guy taking his new words straight to daycare. hehe. I'd blame it on his father, though. =)

I am so not looking forward to the teen-age years. The pre-adolescent sibling rivalry is already driving me crazy!

Teenagers really should just be quarantined. It's for the best.

Dude.
