Swallow before you speak & use your inside voice!

By Ms.Gourmet on May 18, 2011 2:08 PM
One of the most frustrating things about being a mother is the repetitious sound of my own voice. As I bellow each day to the kids to 'eat your breakfast' or 'don't tease your sister' or 'chew with your mouth closed' 'or 'eat your broccoli' I can't help feeling that I'm trapped alongside Bill Murray in a scene from Groundhog Day.

The other day I unintentionally stumbled across this vintage find, from Barn Owl Primitives and I couldn't help but roar with laughter as I felt the years of frustration begin to melt away.

Needless to say I have one of these clever little signs arriving in the mail any minute now!
