In Celebration of Mothers Day!

May 10, 2010

MOTHERS DAY!  That special day in May when we make a special effort to honor our Mothers and show appreciation for all that they have done for us.

A day of breakfast in bed, being showered with gifts and flowers and many other mementos that show Mom how much she means to you!  For some it is just a phone call or a beautiful card in the mail, for others it can be a large family gathering and special meal prepared together or an easy dinner out in Moms favorite restaurant.

But however it is celebrated it is a very special day that Mom’s look forward to and cherish as their special day to celebrate one of the greatest milestones of their life…the day that they became a Mother.

And as it is celebrated with great respect and love it is also fun to reflect back on the wonderful years of raising children and the many trials and tribulations that comes with it.

And in that light we bring to you some of the famous MOM-ISMS that have evolved over time!

  • Money does not grow on trees.
  • Don’t make that face or it’ll freeze in that position.
  • If I talked to my mother like you talk to me….
  • Always change your underwear; you never know when you’ll have an accident.
  • If someone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
  • 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!
  • Be careful what you wish for, it might come true.
  • Don’t eat that, it will stunt your growth.
  • Eat that or you will stunt your growth.
  • What’s meant to be, is meant to be.
  • 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.
  • Eat your vegetables, there are children in China starving!
  • “Cheer up, the worst is yet to come.”
  • Someday your face is going to stick like that.
  • Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
  • Yes, I AM the boss of you.
  • Because I said so.
  • Just wait till your father gets home.
  • No dessert till you clean off your plate.
  • I brought you into this world and I can take you OUT !!
  • I’ve got eyes in the back of my head!
  • Get that out of your mouth!
  • Don’t stick that in your nose!
  • Just you wait until you have kids of your own – then you’ll understand.
  • I slave for hours over a hot stove and this is the thanks I get?!
  • Honestly… You’d lose your head if it wasn’t screwed on!
  • Bored! How can you be bored? I was never bored at your age.
  • Who will end up walking, bathing and feeding it…?
  • Eat everything on your plate and you will be in the clean plate club.
  • You are going to pay for your raising!

The HeartHangers wishes each and every Mother a Very Special Day!

May you all enjoy the special treatment you receive and may all of the “givers” find special delights in the joy of giving as you show that special someone how very much she means to you!

And enjoy a laugh or two as you read over the Mom-isms and say….”I remember when you use to say that!”
