About Me

Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog. So, a bit about me; I'm Natalie and I am a Christian, committed to living by God's Word each and every day. I am a proud mother to three beautiful children and creator of The Accidental Mogul - a blog designed to channel my ambitious juices and unleash the writer within! This blog is a reflection of me, so it contains a little bit of everything. I’ll be documenting my walk with my saviour Jesus Christ, as well as my natural hair journey, I'll be writing thought provoking posts, product reviews, hosting giveaway's and of course offering up a generous dollop of everyday mummy musings. I like to hear uplifting and motivational stories, so I’ll be interviewing inspirational people when I can to encourage and inspire others. Sharing experiences is what makes life beautiful, so let's share.

Do I really say that?

I read about this particular topic on the 'Mummy's little monkey' blog, @Jax2000 writes about how she feels she has turned into her mother, with all the things she keeps saying to her children.

It made me giggle a lot, and got me thinking about the things I say to my kids, so I had to get involved....

Here are the phrases I find I'm constantly having to repeat to my children on a daily basis. A bit cringy to say the least:

  • Ssssshhhhhh
  • Could you please be quiet?
  • Could you please start listening?
  • No means no
  • Why do I have to keep repeating myself?
  • Sit down
  • Leave that alone
  • Because I said so
  • Who did that?
  • Stop crying
  • Stop moaning
  • Get on the naughty step
  • In a minute
  • What are you doing?
  • Get down here now
  • No more
  • Give me that please
  • Don't do that
  • That's enough
  • Behave yourself
  • Leave her/him alone
  • Keep still
  • Stop messing about
  • Stop that noise
  • Stop arguing
  • Be careful please
  • Love you
  • Say your prayers
  • Goodnight 
I'm guessing I should stop there because the list is endless. But you get the gist right?? Looking over it I'm nagging at my children quite a lot. Not good. I must work on that. Hey ho...

What phrases do you find yourself constantly repeating to your children, friends or loved ones?

I would love to know.
