I find myself repeating certain things to the little Miracles of Christ. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is or what they are doing. It seems different situations or actions bring out the same responses. It doesn’t matter which one is doing it or where we are. I want to share a sample of these nuggets with you. Some are lines from movies I’ve seen. Others are gleaned from anecdotes I’ve heard. Whatever they are, wherever they came from, I want to share them with you because they help me cope in certain situations. I hope they can help you if you find yourself trying to communicate with your children.

What made you think that would be a good idea?
I can’t miss you if you don’t leave.
I want to play guitar for Aerosmith. What can I tell you?
Make me say it again.
Are you out of your mind?
Give me strength.
Let’s pretend we’re in the ___ grade.
I’m going to sell you to the lowest bidder.
You’re entering a world of pain.
What part of “No” is giving you trouble?
If life were fair, there’d be no rich people.
