Do you remember your Mother saying these?


Money doesn't grow on trees.

Don't make that face or it will freeze in that position.

If I talked to my mother like you talked to me ......

You have enough dirt behind your ears to grow potatoes!

What if your friend jumped off the cliff?  Would you go too?

If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

Because I'm your mother - that's why.

If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times.

I brought you into this world and I can take you OUT !! (My Mom's favorite)

I slave for hours over a hot stove and this is the thanks I get?

It doesn't matter what you accomplish, I'll always be proud of you.

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

Yes, I AM the boss.

Honestly...You would lose your head if it wasn't screwed on your shoulders.

Bored! How can you be bored?  I was never bored at your age.

If you fall out of that tree and break your leg, don't come running to me.

Don't put that in your mouth, you don't know where it's been.

Wait until you father gets home !!

You just wait until you have kids of your own - then you'll understand.

Good Morning Tom,
My Mom's favorites. Wish she were here so I could hear her.

Yup! "What goes around comes around"! 😊 I surely do miss my Mom, too. In 12 days it will be 1yr.
Bless kings to all the Moms out there. Carol

Oops! Didn't mean bless kings! I meant Blessings! Have no idea how that happened! Carol

Vickie said...

Good Morning Vickie,

I think we all said we would never say that when our parents said them to us - but we did.

Happy Mother's Day,

I've heard most of these but not all from my mom. I have been missing her for 52 years now. Happy mothers day to all the moms and to you also Marilyn as you are Pierre's

Hi dynnamae n,

I think most of us have heard that at one time or another. We will always miss our Mothers.

Happy Mothers Day,
