“Stop throwing clothes everywhere, make it tidy!”

 

“Stop hurling basketball-shirts at each other, I want you to finish this!”

 

“Did you brush your teeth? Go brush your teeth NOW!”

 

“Did you floss ’em?”

 

“Turn off those lights after you leave a room!”

 

 

My husband, at the top of his lungs:

 

“Good night! Come and give me a hug and a kiss..”
