Happy Friday! This weekend brings us that day when we celebrate Mothers. There are many things that Mom told us when we were little. Here are a few of her “greatest hits.”
There are two options for dinner – take it or leave it.
Do you want me to give you something to cry about?
Don’t you get smart with me.
What part of “no” do you not understand?
I don’t care who started it. You stop it now!
“I don’t know” is not an answer.
You WILL eat it and you WILL like it!
You will have fun even if it kills you!
I brought you into this world and I can take you out.
Do I look like a maid?
Is it my job to pick up after you?
A little birdy told me that….
A little soap and water never killed anybody.
Answer me when I ask you a question!
Are you going out dressed like that?
Bored! How can you be bored? I was never bored at your age.
Don’t make me come in there!
Don’t use that tone with me!
Don’t you have anything better to do?
Go to your room and don’t come out until you can behave.
I’ll treat you like an adult when you start acting like one.
I’m down to my last nerve.
Do you think your socks are going to pick themselves up?
Don’t go out with a wet head, you’ll catch cold.
Don’t pick that scab, it’ll get infected.
How do you know you don’t like it if you haven’t tasted it?
If you’re too sick to go to school, you’re too sick to play outside.
Put that down! You don’t know where it’s been!
Someone is going to end up crying.
When you have your own house then you can make the rules!
You can’t find it? Well, if you’d put things where they belonged, you wouldn’t have this problem.
You don’t always get what you want. It’s a hard lesson, but you might as well learn it now.
Don’t EVER let me catch you doing that again!
You could grow potatoes in those ears!
You will ALWAYS be my baby.
You’re going to put your eye out with that thing!
Your father is going to hear about this when HE gets home!
