Moms….Ya Gotta Love ’em!

Here is a list of the most common and popular momisms. This motherly advice transcends the borders of time, space, language and culture. For kids are kids everywhere and Moms are always Moms…caring, concerned, all knowing and full of love.

  • Don’t make that face or it’ll freeze in that position.
  • If I talked to my mother like you talk to me….
  • Always wear clean underwear; you never know when you’ll have an accident.
  • Be careful or you’ll put your eye out.
  • What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
  • You have enough dirt behind those ears to grow potatoes!
  • Close that door! Were you born in a barn?
  • If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
  • Don’t put that in your mouth; you don’t know where it’s been!

  • It doesn’t matter what you accomplish, I’ll always be proud of you.
  • I hope that when you grow up, you have kids “Just Like you”! 
  • Because I’m your mother that’s why.

  • If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times.

  1. Mo, those are so funny!

    How about, “Shut your mouth and eat”! Just TRY that ONE! My brother and I did and the food ended up all over our shirts! Our mother was NOT happy!

    🙂

  2. Ooh, lady, ain’t it the truth! Thanks for reminding us moms of our power. From one Super Mom to another, Happy Mother’s Day. Hugs, Michelle
