Things Moms say.......
When you have your own house then you can make the rules! *Eat your vegetables, they're good for you. *When you have kids of your own you'll understand. *You're the oldest. You should know better. *Go to your room and think about what you did! * When I was a little girl......... *I don't care what all the other kids get to do.*Do you think I'm made of money? *Call me when you get there, just so I know you're okay. *I just want what's best for you. *Why? Because I SAID so, that's why! *Look at this room! It looks like a pigsty or This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it. *You just ate an hour ago!*I don't care what "everyone" is doing. I care what YOU are doing!*****I will always love you - no matter what.
Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!!
