{ OUR MOTHER WERE THE VERY BEST TEACHERS }

Thursday, June 17, 2010

THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY AND I FOUND THIS AND THOUGHT IS WAS GREAT. I CAN REMEMBER A FEW OF THESE THAT MY MOTHER SAID AND I HOPE YOU ENJOY.
Our mothers were the very best teachers

The following is what our mothers taught us about growing up and life in general. My mother was extremely intellectual on a multitude of general subjects, including phenomenally brilliant when providing me with her interpretation of clues on the subject of such things as medicine, religion, science, time travel, including a multitude of other wonderful topics that made a real man out of me.

Read on and you'll see how she did all that.



1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE .
"If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning."

2. My mother taught me RELIGION.
"You better pray that stain will come out of the carpet."

3. My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL.
"If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!"

4. My mother taught me LOGIC.
"Because I said so, that's why."

5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC.
"If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you're not going to the store with me."

6. My mother taught me FORESIGHT.
"Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident."

7. My mother taught me IRONY.
"Keep crying and I'll give you something to cry about..."

8. My mother taught me about the science of OSMOSIS .
"Shut your mouth and eat your supper."

9. My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM.
"Will you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!"

10. My mother taught me about STAMINA...
"You'll sit there until all that spinach is gone."

11. My mother taught me about WEATHER.
"This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it."

12. My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY.
"If I told you once, I've told you a million times. Don't exaggerate!"

13. My mother taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE.
"I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.."

14. My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION ..
"Stop acting like your father!"

15. My mother taught me about ENVY.
"There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don't have wonderful parents like you do."

16. My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION.
"Just wait until we get home."

17. My mother taught me about RECEIVING .
"You are going to get it when you get home!"

18. My mother taught me MEDICAL SCIENCE.
"If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they are going to get stuck that way."

19. My mother taught me ESP.
"Put your sweater on; don't you think I know when you are cold?"

20. My mother taught me HUMOR.
"When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me."

21. My mother taught me HOW TO BECOME AN ADULT .
"If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up."

22. My mother taught me GENETICS.
"You're just like your father."

23. My mother taught me about my ROOTS.
"Shut that door behind you. Do you think you were born in a barn?"

24. My mother taught me WISDOM.
"When you get to be my age, you'll understand."

And the favorite:

25. My mother taught me about JUSTICE.
"One day you'll have kids, and I hope they turn out just like you!"

    emoticon This is hilarious!! I have five kids, grown up now. Some of these sayings were said to me by my Mom,about all of them were said by me to my kids. A word of warning to parents, about #25. I refer to this one as "the Mother's curse". I laid this one on my youngest son,"I hope you have a kid just like you", and he did. I wasn't thinking, this kid was also my Grandson and I got to do some worrying all over again. You made my day!!! Thank you.

    I continue to enjoy your blogs. I heard a lot of these things from my Mom too. Especially numbers 4, 6, 7, and 13. Often wondered how she'd take me out of this world! emoticon

    I am a mother of seven kids all grown and now have nine grandkids plus at least six greatgrandkids and my mom told me she hopes that I would have just one like me. I was the only kid. The only one. All seven of mine are exactly like me, go figure. I am still laughing at this blog, I consider this blog priceless and so full of what it is to be human. thank you for making my week this one, oh how I love it emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
