Does it still count when they’re tweens? lol

I swear, I say “thing” so many times now- as in, “I need, you know- the thing- off the counter” or, “Can you hand me…thing on the floor? UGH- you know what  mean!”

I promise I was more articulate personally before I had this child. It’s like all the words got sucked out of me! Mister puts up with it in good cheer, and teases me when he obviously knows what I mean, but can’t remember the word. Professionally? I am measured, articulate, and deliberate- but all that goes out the…thing when I am at home. Sigh.

I’ll get right one day.
