Friday Funny May 11, 2018 Things Famous Moms Might Have Said

Happy Friday!  This weekend brings us to Mother’s Day.  If you are fortunate enough to still have you Mom, take a few minutes to talk to her and thank her for all she has done for you.  If you no longer have her, take a few minutes to reflect on what she has meant to your life.  Let’s kick off the weekend by reflecting on a few things that some famous Moms might have said.

Enjoy! 

Alexander Graham Bell’s Mother: “Call me when you get there, just so I know you’re okay.”

Paul Revere’s Mother: “I don’t care where you think you have to go, young man. Midnight is past your curfew!”

Mona Lisa’s Mother: “After all that money your father and I spent on braces, is that the biggest smile you can give us?”

Humpty Dumpty’s Mother: “If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a hundred times not to sit on that wall. But would you listen to me?”

Columbus’ Mother: “I don’t care what you’ve discovered, Christopher. You still could have written!”

Babe Ruth’s Mother: “How many times have I told you — quit playing ball in the house! That’s the third broken window this week!”

Michelangelo’s Mother: “Can’t you paint on walls like other children? Do you have any idea how hard it is to get that stuff off the ceiling?”

Napoleon’s Mother: “If you aren’t hiding your report card inside your jacket, then take your hand out of there and prove it!”

Abraham Lincoln’s Mother: “Again with the stovepipe hat? Can’t you just wear a baseball cap like the other kids?”

Batman’s Mother: “It’s a nice car, Bruce, but do you realize how much the insurance is going to be?”

Goldilocks’ Mother: “I’ve got a bill here for a busted chair from the Bear family. You know anything about this, Goldie?”

Little Miss Muffet’s Mother: “Well, all I’ve got to say is if you don’t get off your tuffet and start cleaning your room, there’ll be a lot more spiders around here!”

Albert Einstein’s Mother: “But it’s your senior picture. Can’t you do something about your hair?”

George Washington’s Mother: “The next time I catch you throwing money across the Potomac, you can kiss your allowance good-bye!”

Jonah’s Mother: “That’s a nice story, but now tell me where you’ve really been for the last three days.”

Thomas Edison’s Mother: “Of course I’m proud that you invented the electric light bulb. Now turn off that light and get to bed!”

“If at first you don’t succeed, try doing it the way your mom told you to do it from the start.” ~ unknown

Friday Funny May 12, 2017 You Know You Are a Mom When…..

Happy Friday!  This Sunday we celebrate Mothers.  Of course we know that this is something we should celebrate each and everyday for the many things that Mothers do for us.  This week I thought I would offer some tale tale signs that you are truly embracing the role of Motherhood,

Enjoy!

There is always a box of Popsicles in your freezer.

Most of your television watching involves cartoons.

You always stay up for the 11:00 news, but always fall asleep before the weather.

A day does not go by without either peanut butter and jelly or mac and cheese.

You have determined that almost anything can be cleaned with spit and Kleenex.

You only buy cereal with marshmallows in it.

The closest you get to gourmet cooking is making Rice Krispies Treats or, if you feeling extra fancy, Scotcheroos.

You finish eating your child’s half-eaten food without giving it a second thought.

You automatically double-knot everything you tie.

You remember the places you have gone by the stains on your clothes.

You have determined that there are actually 101 different crafts you can do with Popsicle sticks and chenille stems.

You save empty paper towel and toilet paper rolls for all the great crafts you can make with them.

You know you have a million things that need to be done but you put them all aside to sit in the freezing cold to watch your child’s game and know you took care of the most important task.

You have that rare opportunity to have an adult dinner with you husband and find yourself cutting his steak into small bite-size pieces.

Thought for the Week

“Someday, when my children are old enough to understand the logic that motivates a mother, I’ll tell them: I loved you enough to bug you about where you were going, with whom and what time you would get home. … I loved you enough to be silent and let you discover your friend was a creep. I loved you enough to make you return a Milky Way with a bite out of it to a drugstore and confess, ‘I stole this.’ … But most of all I loved you enough to say no when you hated me for it. That was the hardest part of all.” ~ Erma Bombeck
