Curious little monkey

I got this idea from Christine at Inspired Life, so I do want to give credit where credit is due, but Christine posted about the things she is constantly saying "don't" for in her house.  In her comments she asked what do you find yourself saying "don't" about that you never though you would say?  I had a ton.  So I know, this would make a good post in and of itself.  I have a rather mobile one year old.  She's not walking yet, but she crawls like a fiend and cruises along furniture really well.  So she gets around.  And gets into everything.  Everything. 

Don't pull on the XM radio cord, Aubrey!
Stop taking your Sesame characters and hitting them on our metal fireplace door!
Stop hitting the fireplace!
Stop trying to overturn the end table!
Stop pulling on the computer cord!
Don't put it in your mouth!
Stop pushing on the screen door!
Don't pull on the blinds!
Stay away from the bathtub faucet!
No, don't chew on Daddy's phone. 
Where did you get that?
Don't throw your food on the floor.
Don't chew on stove door handle! (Yep, teeth marks now on my brand new stainless stove)
Don't lick the stainless.
Don't play with the recycling.
Don't pull Mommy's hair, sweetie. 
Don't pull on that necklace.
Don't tear up that book.
Don't chew on your bed, Aubrey!
Dear God, how did you chew on your bed so much?  What are you?  Part beaver?

I'm not always yelling at my daughter, don't get me wrong.  But seriously...sometimes I wonder where she finds things to do, what goes through her mind to come up with these things and for God's sake...why? 

She's my curious little monkey, what can I say?



  1. When my niece was little someone asked her, her name, she replied with, "Melody Joy Don't"

  2. How many of them also work for T?
