Day 105 or The Things My Mother Said That I Swore I Wouldn't

The Real Title Should Be : The Things That My Mother Said That I Swore I Wouldn't But I Said This Week...

You may judge, but this is my little truth corner so here it is.

1. "Because I said so" -- I used to think this was a cardinal sin. And I never start here but after providing multiple logical answers, multiple times... this is a solid go-to. There is no answer back. Conversation closed.

2. "You're older" -- I hate that I say this to my older child. I was the oldest and no matter how old my younger brothers became, they were always younger which seemed to lessen their culpability because I was always "older".

3. "I don't care who started it, I am ending it" -- Enough said.

4. "I'm going to throw every toy you own in the trash if you..." Insert one of the following -- fight over another toy, don't put up your toys, throw another toy, etc. etc. etc.

5. "You are making Mommy crazy" -- Well, this is true but I am sure that there is a wealth of child-rearing experts that would say that this is a terrible thing to tell your children.

And for the coup de gras, the proof that I have officially become my mother, ladies and gentlemen... "I'm going to call Santa and tell him to put you on the naughty list". And the other night, I did. I called Santa (luckily my children can't read their father's full name on the phone screen yet. This won't work next year.) Okay, you may judge. I know. I know. Perfectly awful.

One thing my mom said that I'm proud to say... "I love you even when you make me crazy. And one day I hope that you have a child just like you".

I wasn't really raised by my mom, so I can't blame her if AI ever used any of those sayings. I do love the fact that your mom says "she loves you even when you make her crazy." I make it a point to tell my daughter everyday I love her every time she leaves out the door for different reasons, but I don't think you said anything too bad.

mama-face said...

haha. So true. One time when I was a little girl my mom threatened to throw all of mine and my sisters dolls and things away if we didn't clean them up. Guess what?!!! She did!! And she says she always regretted that. And I have used up my Santa threat quota for life.

Hey YOU ARE THE WINNER OF MY CARDS!!! Come and get 'em!!!

"Wait till your father gets home!"

Apparently our moms are a lot alike. You crack me up!

blueviolet said...

I wonder if there is one of us out there who can say we haven't fallen victim to our mother's ways?

Hi, just visiting from Betty at Cut And Dry. Congratulations on your award. I've really enjoyed visiting your blog. An interesting post, I think most of us have opened our mouths and heard our mother speak at some time or other. I'm now a little worried though as never mind my mother, I'm now hearing myself sounding like my grandad. Anyway it was nice to meet you.

kys said...

How about "Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about"? No? Me either.

Nancy Campbell said...

I've said every. one. of these. I'm cringing, just a little bit.

When did I become my Mom said...

Lol. I totally totally feel you....
Named a whole blog after it, even. ;-)
