Why is There a Hippo in the Toilet? & other funny things Moms say! #Giveaway

“I am NOT a garbage can!”

“No you may NOT run down the street naked!”

“I am NOT a Kleenex!”

“Get your hands out of my shirt!”

If you’re a mom (or dad), I’m sure there are phrases you NEVER thought you would say. In fact, the funny things moms say is a topic often shared among friends during an afternoon frozen mocha or evening drinks.

funny things moms say


Kimberly Dawn Rempel loved listening to all the funny and crazy things that were coming out of her mouth and the mouths of her friends, so she decided to write them down in a book.  The hilarious book Why is There a Hippo in the Toilet? is a book full of quotes from moms that deal with Food and Eating, Toileting, House Rules and Other Good Advice to name a few.

Each new section of the book, is introduced with a true story, and is followed by multiple quotes that will amuse the seasoned parent and give fair warning parents-to-be.

Reading through this book, I couldn’t help but laugh.  I couldn’t believe how many times I had said the same thing to my children or nieces and nephews and even thought of a few that I could add to the book.  I’m sure the “funny things moms say” list could go on forever!!


1 lucky Mommy Moment reader will WIN a signed copy of Kimberly’s book Why is There a Hippo in the Toilet?  This book would make a great gift for Parent’s Day coming up on July 27th!

To enter, leave a blog post comment telling us one of the funniest things YOU have ever said!
