With Mother’s Day around the corner it’s important to remember those important little mom-isms that helped shaped us into who we are today. You know, ones like:
- Don’t make that face or it’ll freeze in that position.
- Always change your underwear; you never know when you’ll have an accident.
- Be careful or you’ll put your eye out.
- What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
- Close that door! Were you born in a barn?
- If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
- Don’t put that in your mouth; you don’t know where it’s been!
- It doesn’t matter what you accomplish, I’ll always be proud of you.
- Because I’m your mother that’s why.
- If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times.
- If you fall out of that tree and break you leg , don’t come running to me.
- I’ve got eyes in the back of my head, that’s how
- Get that thing out of your mouth! (or nose)
- Just you wait until you have kids of your own – then you’ll understand
- I slave for hours over a hot stove and this is the thanks I get?!
- Who’ll end up walking, bathing and feeding it…?
Flowers, a phone call, dark chocolate, dinner out, dinner made, a hug, a card–it doesn’t matter what it is, because deep down Mother’s Day is everyday when you have kids. It doesn’t have to be Hallmark designated to make it so.

May I add a few more?
“If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right;”
“Mind your manners.”
“Eat all the food on your plate, there are starving children in China.”
” Wait till your father gets home.”
“Turn off those lights when you leave the room. I’m not made out of money!”
“Pick up your clothes, you’re not a snake!”
“Put on a sweater or you’ll catch your death.”
“Don’t sit too close to the TV you’ll ruin your eyes.”
“This room is a pigsty!”
“What did I tell you?!”
“What are you listening to? Garbage?”
“Be nice to everyone at school. You never know when you’ll meet them again.”
Great post. That was fun.
Definitely. How can I forget the “sweater” reminder? I forgot to add my personal favorite: “Did I ask you more than once?”
Glad you enjoyed!
Eat your vegetables
When I was your age …
Moms are Moms no matter which part of the world you go. And they are special.
