Yes, Mother’s day is Sunday May 13th (in case you didn’t know or FORGOT)!!!!  Your mom has been too good to you to receive a card that has been beat up from all the people who went through them YESTERDAY (lol)!!!  Maybe you should remind her of a few things that she has DEFINITELY said during her tenure… As a woman I’ll probably say a few of these same things to my chaps…  And we say that we’ll never “say these things to our kids” or “treat our kids this way” …. #LiesandDeceit :-)!!!


Here is a list of the most common and popular “mom-isms”. These motherly advise transcends the borders of time, space, language and culture. For kids are kids everywhere and Mom are always Mom…caring, concern, all-knowing and full of love.

  • Money does not grow on trees.
  • I brought you into this world, and I’ll for sure take you out!*
  • Don’t make that face or it’ll freeze in that position.
  • If I talked to my mother like you talk to me….
  • Always change your underwear; you never know when you’ll have an accident.
  • I’m the mother, you’re the child.*
  • Be careful or you’ll put your eye out.
  • Don’t make me grab my belt!*
  • What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
  • You’re a leader, not a follower.*
  • You have enough dirt behind those ears to grow potatoes!
  • If I have to tell you ONE MORE TIME!*
  • Close that door! Were you born in a barn?
