    Description:
       I did not write these. I got these from a website by Shirley Thomas @ CraftSayings.com
    There was a much longer list, but I picked out my favorites that I can remember saying when my kids were growing up.

    Why? Because I said so, that's why!

    I'm going to give you until the count of three!

    If your friends jumped off a bridge would you do it too?

    Someday your face will freeze like that!

    I'm not running a taxi cab service.

    Do you think I was born yesterday?

    Always wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident.

    I hope someday when you have kids they're just like you, then you'll know!

    In my time, we never... Tim, Pat, Chris, Fido... whatever your name is...

    Do you want your mouth washed out with soap?

    This is for your own good!

    What did I just tell you?

    Just wait 'til your father gets home!

    I'll give you something to cry about!

    You'll be just like me one day.

    Who do you think you're talking to? Do I look like one of your friends!

    What the H@LL did I say!

    Do I look as stupid as you think I am?

    Be careful...Don't do that...Stop it...

    Mark my words, you're going to hurt yourself!

    I don't feel like spending the night in the emergency room!

    When you grow up you can make the rules.

    Well, I'm not their mom.

    Are you paying for it with your good looks?

    You've decided to bless us with your company?

    You want me to pay how much to put someone's name on your butt?

    How did you pour yourself into that? And where's the rest of it?

    I only nag because I love you!

    I love you no matter what...

      These are really cute, I think my mom may have said some of these to me before she died... great to hear again though!

      My mother probably used every one of these sayings. Some more than other.
    Very enjoyable to take a trip back through time.
    Well, I use them with my kids at times and I am a father. Most of the time I just look at them until they understand. My wife uses them on me though. LOL
    I will have to check out the web site that you got these from

    I read your journal and I hope your husband recovers and feels better.
    Bypass is hard to get over but it will get better. This I know for a fact. I got my zipper 6 yrs ago and I am happy I went through with it.
    God Bless

    Respect and Admiration

      The one that I always used to hear was said when I would roll my eyes at something my dad would say to me:

    "What's so interesting up there on that ceiling?"

    or

    "You won't find the answer written on the ceiling!"

    I guess I rolled my eyes a lot... LOL

    I try VERY hard not to use "momisms", myself...but sometimes they just come out!

    Nice one

      My God, you took me back to living at home with mom! Make it stop! Very funny. And very real. You spoke the words of every mother. This was a witty piece. I love it!

      Well, I've heard nearly everyone of these... if not from my mom (or me), then from other parents. I did the "count to three" thing with mine..but it was more for "me" than for them.. I probably should have counted to 100 at times..lol.
    I enjoyed reading through all of these and nodding my head when I came to familiar ones.. as most of them were.
    Take care... and keep posting.

      Ha ha ha! Memories!
    Mothers are great, aren't they? You left out one I heard all the time

    "You eat that! There are children in India starving!"

    Thanks for a neat walk down memory lane

    be Happy

      Why do I feel like I should go to my room? :)

    One thing I didn't see on the list was one of my Mom's favorites... "You'll put someone's eye out with that". Which thankfully never happened.

      I just hate when I hear those words, but most of them was said by my father. Lets see, whats everything he's said to me:

    Why? Because I said so, that's why!

    I'm going to give you until the count of three!-(but it was really the count of two, three was just to make you think you had an extra second).

    Someday your face will freeze like that!-(He says that when I try to give him the puppy dog face or the pissed off face).



    If your friends jumped off a bridge would you do it too?-(my response is usually "If there's water")

    I'm not running a taxi cab service.

    Do you think I was born yesterday?-(Sometimes I wish I could say yes because in a sense everybody was born yesterday if you look at it as if it were the past)

    I'll give you something to cry about!

    When you grow up you can make the rules.-(I how i loathe this one)


    oh! you forgot one:
    This hurts me more than it does you-(oh! I hate this one so much. Everytime i would get whippings, he would mention this. But then I realize hes right. Pain only lasts a good five to ten seconds, feeling it emotionally tends to linger.

    I like this, thanks for sharing
    take care

      yeah, they all sound familiar to me! and I've not only heard them, but said them a few times as well! my youngest is 17. I had 3 great kids but there were days when it was overwhelming! but I'm really glad I had them just the same. I love how you arranged the sayings and how you ended it-perfectly!

    what a giggle. made me laugh because i have a twelve year old daughter, and i think i have actually used just about every single one of these lines!!!!
    same as my mum used them all on me. my daughter will most likely use them all too one day!
    thanks for this, i think this is great!
