  1. I'm impressed. Great list & some of them really made me giggle. There are a few that we use, such as 'if you want a drink then go and get one.' Never works though....

  2. love it !!!! As I read them I could hear you saying them .
    They made me smile.

  3. I"m glad you like my list. As the weekend has passed I have realized I missed some such as:

    Hands out of your pants
    Can you see what he is doing?
    Stop picking your nose
    Finger out of your nose
    Pull your t-shirt our of your shorts

    and probably the one thing I say the most

    Come on Cam
