Happy Saturday! As promised I am making my blogs in honor of all the Mom's out there including my own who is no longer with me. I found this on the web, no author was listed. I had to laugh at some of these. Linda (nurse) and I were talking about them and we even came up with a few to add to it.
Which one is your favorite? Any you use now? Can you add some to this list? Please let me know I want to hear from YOU.
~* Universal Mom Sayings *~
These familiar saying have somehow been handed down from mother to daugther right through the ages. How many of these did you grow up with?
*Who do you think you are?
*Ask your father (closely followed by "Ask your Mother")
*Bored! How can you be bored? I was never bored at your age.
*I'll treat you like an adult when you start acting like an adult!
*Look at me when I'm talking to you.
*Don't you roll your eyes at me!
*Don't pick it, it'll get infected.
*I don't care if "insert child's name here" Mum said yes.
*You'll put your eye out with that thing!
*I'm going to give you to the count to three.
*Don't put that thing in your mouth, you don't know where it's been.
*Wear clean underwear in case you get in an accident and have to go to hospital.
*Don't cross your eyes like that, one day they'll freeze that way.
*I don't care who started it, I'll finish it!
*Don't EVER let me catch you doing that again!
*Why? Because I SAID SO, that's why!?!
*If such and such jumped off a cliff, would you jump too?
*If I catch you doing that one more time, I'll...
*Your father is going to hear about THIS when he gets home!
*If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
*How many times do I have to tell you, don't throw things in the house!
*Do you think your clothes are going to pick themselves up?
*"I don't know" is NOT an answer!
*I know it's not fair. Life isn't fair.
*Don't talk back to me
*If you fall off that swing and break your neck,
don't come crying to me.
*When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me."
*You're just like your father.
*When you get to be my age, you will understand.
*Do as I say not as I do
*I hope one day you have children that act just like you.
Here is a Beautiful Poem I found as well.
Mother, If I Could Give You...
If I could give you diamonds for each tear you cried for me.
If I could five you sapphires for each truth you’ve helped me see.
If I could give you rubies for the heartache that you’ve known.
If I could give you pearls for the wisdom that you’ve shown.
Then you’ll have a treasure, mother, that would mount up to the skies.
That would almost match the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.
But I have no pearls, no diamonds, as I’m sure you’re well aware.
So I’ll give you gifts more precious; my devotion, love and care.
