I have found that I have a few key phrases that I say all day long. And I say them so often and so liberally I find myself saying them to anything in the house that moves. Dog, cats, babies.
Some of my favorites are:
-Get that out of your mouth. (This one applies to all species in my household.)
-No! (I must say this 5,294 times a day)
-Don't touch that.
-Don't (I say this so often that Bear now runs around saying "Dote, dote, dote."
-Sit (yes this is not soley used for the dog.)
-That goes in your mouth and not on the floor. (this is used at meal times now that Noah has discovered the dog will eat what he does not want to.)
And last but not least, my favorite:
-I love you!
