Six Word Saturday

Describe your life (or something) in a phrase using just six words. For more information, try clicking here. Feel free to explain or not explain. Add an image, a video, a song, nothing. I love seeing what everyone does each week with their entries.

Because I said so - that's why!

All that's necessary to participate is to post your own six words. You can post an explanation if you wish but it's certainly not required. If you play along in your blog, please add a link to the Mr. Linky. I appreciate a link back (shiny code below if you like!) but I'm not going to delete your entry or punch you in the face if you don't. Otherwise, you're welcome to leave your six words in this post as a comment.

At the height of frustration these are the only words we can use!

My mom had a shirt that said that. I hated that shirt when I was a kid. Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind having one of those myself about now... so I wouldn't have to keeping saying it.

Melissa B. said...

My senitments, exactly...Happy Saturday, OK?

Matty said...

Oh, how many times I heard that one when I was growing up.

C. Beth said...

Cate, always the queen of logic! :)

Nessa said...

I swore (before I had a child, of course) that I would never, ever, in a million years, say that. Yeah, right.

Call Me Cate said...

What's great is that I don't even have kids so I'm just all practiced up on husbands, bosses, online peeps, random people at the grocery store, the guy in front of me at the hockey game...

Saying those six words were what my mother referred to as her "John Law Moments"!

Self-imposed power: Work it!

Kathy said...

I wonder how many times those words have been spoken...and will be spoken in the future!

marinik said...

Jenny-Jenny said...

That's what I'm talking about! Sometimes that's all the reason they need.

I love 6WS! I think about it all week=]

Jim said...

At one time that went for me and the kids. Not with Mrs. Jim.
Now the dogs, Adi and Katrin, know the rules of the Jim's House.
Cate, you are good! Happy 6WS!

slacker-chick said...

Hmmm are you having a flashback or did you recently say that?!? I've been tempted to say it! ;->

Linda said...

Oh Yes,...I said that a few times when my 3 kiddos were little! And my mom said it to me too years ago.

I think we are just like little kids when we question God! Can't you just imagine Him saying that to us too? Except He has a right to say it! ((smile))

BoufMom9 said...

Oh boy! I use those 6 words ALL the time :)

Happy Saturday!

Princess Andy said...

andrea

Stop by and see me sometime.

Jessica said...

Probably the most powerful phrase in my mommy arsenal.

BTW -- Your new banner is awesome and I am so glad that you keep your blog up to date on all vaccinations. How very responsible of you!

Happy 6WS~

diana said...

Kathryn @ Expectant Hearts said...

Oh, Because I said so - that's why. Some of my favorite words. As a mom!
Don't participate regularly but I"m trying!

Jeanie said...

Cate, Thanks so much for 6WS...it is really connecting a lot of people. Not to mention, I seem to speak better when I use only 6 words instead of trying to say more.

Kathryn @ Expectant Hearts said...

I fixed my profile so you'd get my email address now. What a great idea! I may have to do that..

Btw, the response from some of your participants has been overwhelming. I feel so loved!

uthostage said...

I love your 6 words! And I'm guilty of saying them too. LOL

Kimberly said...

My first time here. Great idea. :)

scrappysue said...
