Things Moms Say: If I Had a Penny....

Another week, another Things Moms Say!  I've been LOVING the responses people share for each question. Last week we discussed some of our best (or, is it worst?) Mom Fails. The week before, we were encouraged by sharing our Best Parenting Advice. Some stories make me crack up, others inspire me. Overall it's nice to know that we are all in this together (and we might as well have a sense of humor about it)!

This week, I asked Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom Facebook fans, as well as my Philly Social Media Moms bloggers to fill in the blank:

If I had a penny for every time I said _____________, 
I'd be a rich momma!

Here are some of the fantastic responses I received:
