I hate to say this but I am kind of becoming my mother. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my mom and actually strive to be like her in most ways… BUT ONE.
All of my life my mother was famous for espousing annoying tidbits of wisdom. She had these little sayings that she would spout off to us kids that would drive us crazy. (Oh, she knew it too!) I fondly call them “Mom-isms.”
I can rattle off hundreds of them…
“Your eyes are bigger than your stomach.”
“Come back smarter than you left!”
“If you don’t have time to do it right, you’re going to need to make time to do it over.”
And my personal favorite: “Don’t drown in a glass of water.” When I hear this one I just want to throw myself off of a bridge, it makes me so nuts!
And now… well, NOW I find MYSELF saying the same damn things to my own kids. When did that happen?!!!
Anyone else know what I mean? If so, feel free to leave your favorite “Mom-isms” in a comment below. We will all relate, I am sure!
