If You Haven’t Been There – YOU WILL BE!

Growing up I heard them and I’m sure you did too.

“Close the door!  Were you raised in a barn?”

“Stop crying before I give you something to cry about!”

Sounds all to familiar AND we swore we would never say such things to our children!  HA………………

Life happened and we had those children…just like us!  The old adage is true, “The apple never falls far from the apple tree” {however that goes}.

A recent poll by “Fans of Being A Mom” on Facebook came back with these comments that we vowed NEVER to say to our children.  It makes me chuckle :)  Sooooooo many are all to familiar with me.  I AM MY MOTHER NOW!!

Because I said so, that’s why.

Because I’m the mom.

I’m not asking you, I’m telling you.

It’s not what you say but how you say it.

I brought you in this world and I can take you out.

If your friend jumped off a bridge would you jump too?

This hurts me more than it hurts you.

In or OUT!

When you have kids of your own you will understand.

You’re going to nickel and dime me to death.

Just wait until your dad gets home.

Fine. Kill each other! I don’t care!

One day your face is going to freeze like that.

Don’t roll your eyes at me.

When you get your own house, you can make your own rules.

I’m not so and so’s mother, I’m your mother.

Do you think money grows on trees?

It’s for your own good.

I don’t know isn’t an answer.

When you break your leg don’t come crying to me.

When you pay the bills then your opinion will matter.

Slam that door again and see what happens.

Nothing good ever happens after midnight.

How many times do I have to tell you.

No IFS, ANDS or BUTS.

The list could go on and on!  How many of these did you hear as a child AND you now say as an adult? 

When did you turn into your own mother?!  I guess it’s safe to say that someday my grandchildren will hear these same things.  Kids will be kids…..
