It was amazing to read all of the "mom-isms" that everyone contributed this past week! It made my Mother's Day weekend extra special thinking about all the moms in J-Land and their mothers as the comments were coming in. Thanks everyone!
I am listing these "mom-isms" below. I want to honor all J-Land's moms and their moms!! Here they are in no particular order, from no particular mom...
"If you go outside with wet hair when it is cold, you will get sick."
"You don't have the sense you were born with."
"People in hell want ice water."
"You never miss the water 'til the well runs dry."
"It all gets mixed together in your stomach."
"Just wait 'til you have kids of your own!"
"If people don't like you for who you are, they aren't your friends."
"Be a leader, not a follower."
"I love you!"
"Go back and wash your hands properly. Hands don't stop at your wrists."
"Keep your name clean!"
"Goodness gracious goodness Agnes!"
"I told you a thousand times not to exaggerate!"
"Don't cross your eyes, if someone hits you in the back of the head they
will get stuck that way!"
"Learn from your mistakes."
"Wait until you have children!"
"Love your brothers as they are the family that will be with you the longest
and they are the ones you can depend on to be there for you."
"We'll just see how you do!"
"Nursing is a good profession to fall back on."
"Wait 'til your Father gets home!"
"Close your mouth or flies will get in!"
"Is he/she Catholic?"
"Are you going to church?"
"Think of all those starving kids overseas!"
"You can cry for five minutes, then you have to stop."
"Just wait until your Dad gets home!"
"Offer it up!"
"Have a party when I'm gone."
"Don't cry 'til you're hurt."
"Only boring people get bored."
"All my geese are swans!"
"I'm not a taxi service."
"Don't sit too close to the TV/read in the dark. It will hurt your eyes."
"Go play outside. It's too beautiful to be inside."
Aren't they precious?! So, how many of you find yourselves repeating some of these to your own children? I know I repeat a couple of things my mom used to say to my kids. This was alot of fun! I will be back tomorrow to post "Wordplay". As always, thanks for stopping by! xox
