Nevermind overachieving, I can't believe how many things I have to say over and over a day just to keep my kids alive.

Eat. Eat. Eat. Eat. Drink your water. Put on a coat. Take your vitamin. Take your vitamin. Eat. Eat. Eat. Don't stick that in there. Look both ways. Look both ways. Make sure you look both ways. Wear your helmet. Stay by my side. Go to sleep. Go to sleep. Go to sleep. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up. Eat. Eat. Eat.

Too funny. Just heard Michael J. Fox on Letterman say having a small child is basically being on "suicide watch," i.e. "No! Please don't pee on that outlet!" (Or something to that effect.)

Not to mention, "Please pick that up." Our darlin' daughters are now thirteen and it sometimes feels like that is every other phrase that comes out of my
mouth :-)

Imagine a teacher's day. Each student requires the same number of individual repetitions, because when you said it to Johnny, Susie wasn't listening!

Thanks for the comments. Glad you can relate. Some nights I stay up super late just so I can hear my own silence.
