Mom-isms....How many of you heard your Mom say this?
And how many of you find yourself saying these expressions...

" A little "birdy" told me.

Now my Mom did say this to me quite often growing up. I said the same words to Eric. One day I saw him outside just staring up at the sky. I asked him what he was looking for and he told me he was looking for that little birdy that kept telling on him because he was gonna shoot it.

"Are you lying to me?"

Now I never did quite get this one...I mean if I WAS lying to her I was not about to tell her I was! And yet I found myself asking my child the same question.

"If it were a snake it would have bitten you"

OK, but it isn't a snake! Just tell me where I put it already!!!

"I'm doing this for your own good"

I mean really spanking me and putting me on restriction is really for my own good????

"Pick that up before somebody trips on it and breaks their neck!"

I mean really? How often has this actually happened???

"Shut your mouth and eat!"

Is this even possible???

"When you have your own house then you can make the rules"


"Always wear clean underwear in case you are in an accident"

I mean seriously....if you are in an accident...are you really gonna have Clean underwear?

"Turn off that light! Do you think we own the electric company?"

You mean we don't? LOL

"Watch your language!"

I mean is this even possible unless you are looking in a mirror???
And my favorite

"Go to your room and think about what you did"

I already knew what I did and I got in big trouble for it, so why would I want to waste the rest of my day thinking about it.

Tell me some of you mom-isms.

You hit them all pretty well, my friend. :)

How about: "This is gonna hurt me a lot more than it hurts you."
