Mom’s Favorite Sayings

August 3, 2016
by Anesa McGregor , Emmetsburg News

Sometimes you just seem to find those times that really bring back memories of childhood. The only difference with this one is that I could really relate to the ten favorite sayings of Mom plus I added a few of my own to the end. To me it's amazing, that across the country, whether you live in the country or the city, sometimes there isn't that much difference to the way people think. So see which ones you remember and maybe you have a few of your own.

What part of no don't you understand

I don't care who started it, I'm finishing it

Money doesn't grow on trees

Your face is going to freeze like that

Your hands (legs) aren't broken

Beds are made for sleeping not jumping

No one said life is fair

Eat your vegetables

"I don't know" is not an answer

Because I said soThat's why

Now a few I remember my own Mom saying:

Don't' make me come after you

Go pick out a switch

You have until the count of three to get over here

Don't play in the mud

Just wait until your father gets home

Stop picking on your brother

Don't make me stop this car

Don't touch anything

What did I tell you?

You've got it easy. I used to walk up hill to school and up hill home from school. You get on a bus

The one I like the most is the uphill to and from school. It took me several years to realize it was impossible and an exaggeration. Today it is so funny to think that I was this gullible as a child.

Is anyone else feel that way too? And how many of these things have you said to your children?

I'm sure there are many other sayings out there from other Mom's and if anyone would like to share, it would be fun to hear from you.
