Thursday Thirteen # 4

Thirteen Momisms

1. You don't have to like me, missy, I'm your mother.
2. Shut your mouth and eat.
3. Don't run with a lollipop in your mouth.
4. Don't sit too close to the television, it'll ruin your eyes.
5. Never try on anyone else's glasses or you'll go blind.
6. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
7. What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
8. Close that door! Were you born in a barn?
9. Don't put that in your mouth; you don't know where it's been!
10. If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times.
11. Because I'm your mother that's why.
13. "I don't know" is not an answer!

So true...I feel like I just had a conversation with my mom...on your blog!! Thanks for sharing, and Happy TT!

Barbara said...

Great list!

Here's another: If you break your leg don't come running to me!

she said...

I'll second jen - this brought back a lot of memories of all the arguments I've had with my mom over the years and especially the teen years!

Sanni said...

Way too funny - I love #11. I´m sure Luis will hear this twice a day during the next years.

I used to say "Because I´m Sanni - that´s why" the last few years. I guess I´ll have to change this...

Lisa said...

Oh, too funny! I can't tell you how many times I've said "don't run with a lollipop in your mouth" to J, and he's only four. I'm sure I'll use more than one of the remaining 12 before he's grown!

Raggedy said...

Why does this list sound waaaaaaaayyyyyyyy to familiar..lol
Great Mommisms!
Have a wonderful Thursday.
My TT is posted

"Accident? How could it be an accident when you meant to do it? You mean it was an accident you got caught!"

JO said...

I'm guilty of # 2, 4 [but not anymore], 9 and 11.

Chris said...

Hey!, we Dad's use a few of them as well ;-)

Duchess said...

I often heard, "because I said so",
"Wait until your father gets home" and "you will appreciate this one day".

Great list. I feel my mom all around me this morning.

Di said...

I have said every single one of those things...and that was just yesterday!

JO said...

hi Tisha,
Yes, it is still working for me... here's another update on that one.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

Barbara H. said...

Some of those are still good though they've been used for eons! Which I guess is why they've been used. Funny how we say contradictory things without realizing it some times, though.

JohnH985 said...

Sounds just like my mom.

My 13 are up.

Crunchy Carpets said...

Good grief..I say them all

Janet said...

lol I remember my Mom saying some of those things! Thanks for visiting :-)

Mert said...

I have never use a single one of those!

Yeah right! Great list, happy TT!

crpitt said...

KarenW said...

I have said or heard all of those!

Diana said...

Thanks for stopping by my TT!

I have to say that in any language these are all the same. I can remember my mom saying these in spanish. I guess the Universal language of being a mother is all that matters. Even if we tend to drive our mothers crazy.

Feel better btw!

Cheryl said...

How about...if you break your leg don't come running to me!

TopChamp said...

Yup - all familiar.....

gem said...

Oh, Lord. How many of those have I said! No wonder my daughter can't stand to be around me.

Sunflower said...

I might need them in the future.


I will Exercise for Comments!

Skittles said...

I think I've said all of those! Happy TT!

Starrlight said...

Amen to #1!

Cheryl Wray said...

I LOVE it!! I have said every one of those at one time or another!! LOL

Uisce said...

::looking outside:: yup, the barn doors are open!

terra shield said...

I've heard 4,5,9 and 10 from the mom when I was younger. Surprisingly, no 7 came out of dad... :)

Great list... by the way, I dropped by via the carnival at mimi's :D

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

yup, on every one of them! and honey? they're all true, you see? mom's rock!!! smiles, bee

Jessie said...

My mom said all of those at some point! Thanks for entering this in the carnival!

JAM said...

These are great! I love number one.

I've thought of doing this about my mother, but her problem (making it my problem) is that she makes them up on the spot and they won't mean anything at all to those who read them. You truly would have had to be there.

I'm here from the Carnival. (that sounds weird, like a threat)

Bond said...

Came from THE COUCH for the Carnival...

LOL Dad's say a lot of those too
