Lately, I’ve been thinking about motherhood. It’s tiring, rewarding, fun, adventurous, scary … and no one understands those “mom” feelings except for another mom. My mom is my best friend. The past few weeks have been rough because her health has not been too great. Thankfully, through prayers and faith and great doctors, she is getting better. So, in honor of my mom…here are some mom-isms. Some of these, my mom said to me. Some of these, I hope I never say. Some of these, I KNOW I’ll end up saying. It’s like once you become a mom, these words just get placed in your head and before you know it, you hear yourself say them!
"As long as you live under my roof, you'll do as I say."
"Call me when you get there, just so I know you're okay."
"Do you think I'm made of money?"
"Don't EVER let me catch you doing that again!"
"Don't make me get up!"
"How do you know you don't like it if you haven't tasted it?"
"If you're too sick to go to school, you're too sick to play outside."
"It's not that I don't trust you, it's that I don't trust everyone else."
"Life isn't fair."
"Look at me when I'm talking to you."
"Now, say you're sorry...and MEAN it!"
"Were you born in a barn? Close the door -- and DON'T slam it!"
"When you have your own house then you can make the rules!"
"You will ALWAYS be my baby."
