Things Mothers Say

All of us were guided by our mother's voice, wisdom and common sense, even if we didn't think so at the time.  Whether we remember what she said fondly, or try to forget these phrases, they are still part of us.  Ultimately, without even realizing it, we pass them along to our children, who will in most likelihood pass them on to their children.

Here are a few that maybe
you will remember!!!

"Someday your face will freeze like that!"

"What if everyone jumped off a cliff ...
Would you do it, too?"

"You're going to put your eye out
with that thing!"

"How many times do I have to tell you ...
Don't throw things in the house!"


"Close the door behind you.
Were you born in a barn?"

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

"Eat those carrots ...
they're good for your eyes.
Have you ever seen a rabbit
wearing glasses?"

"Did you flush?"


"You can be anything you want to be ...
if you just set your mind to it."

"There's enough dirt in those ears
to grow potatoes!"

"I don't care what "everyone" is doing.
I care what you are doing!"

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


"I hope someday you have children
just like you."

"Don't talk with your mouth full!"

"Put on clean underwear.
You never know if you'll be in an accident."

"Sit like a lady!"

"Don't pick ... it'll get infected."


"I'm not just talking to hear myself talk."

"I'm going to give you
until the count of three."

"Don't cross your eyes
or they'll freeze that way."

"If you swallow a watermelon seed,
a watermelon will grow in your stomach."

"Men perspire ... ladies glisten."
