The Sentences I Hear Myself Say

I recently heard myself say the following five sentences, in this order, with nothing else between, in a time span of about two minutes.

“Sophie, don’t do pirouettes on the stairs.”

“James, no, you can’t wear Sophie’s winter boots outside.”

“Slow down, Tucker! You’re going to knock the kids down!”

“Sophie, please go put pants on.”

“James, don’t take money out of my wallet.”

There are a lot of two-minute time spans in a day.

“My mom used to say it doesn’t matter how many kids you have … because one kid’ll take up 100% of your time so more kids can’t possibly take up more than 100% of your time.” —Karen Brown
