A little "birdy" told me!
Do you think I'm made of money?
Close the door! Are you trying to refrigerate the whole neighborhood?
They drove us crazy as kids, and they are permanently etched in our minds as adults. Eventually we found ourselves repeating them to our own kids or sharing these "special wisdoms" between our adult siblings at family gatherings! They are at once our deepest annoyance and our warmest memories...what would life be with Mommyisms!
To celebrate this very special brand of philosophy, here are some great Mommyisms that are sure to bring a smile to your face!
Close the door! You don't live in a barn.
All I do is follow you around, picking up after you like some maid.
Am I talking to a brick wall?
As long as you live under my roof, you'll do as I say.
Don't go out with a wet head, you'll catch cold.
Don't sit too close to the television, it'll ruin your eyes.
Don't talk with your mouth full!
How do you know you don't like it if you haven't tasted it?
I hope someday you have children just like you.
If you could stay out last night, you can get up this morning.
If you're too sick to go to school, you're too sick to play outside.
Money does NOT grow on trees.
Pick that up before somebody trips on it and breaks their neck!
Turn that racket (music) down!
What did I say the FIRST time?
If everyone jumped off a cliff, would you do it, too?
What part of NO don't you understand?
When you have your own house then you can make the rules!
You won't be happy until you break that, will you?
Always wear clean underwear in case you get in an accident.
Don't ask me WHY. The answer is NO.
Don't cross your eyes or they'll stay that way.
I don't care who started it, I said stop!
If I've told you once ... I've told you a thousand times.
I'm going to give you until the count of three...
Look at this room! It looks like a pigsty!
Turn off that light. Do you think we own the electric company?
What do you think, money grows on trees?
When you have kids of your own you'll understand.
Why? Because I SAID so, that's why!
Your father is going to hear about this when HE gets home!
Don't make that face or it'll freeze in that position.
Because I'm your mother that's why.
If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times.
I've got eyes in the back of my head, that's how!
