What are your personal "mom phrases"


"Because I'm your mother" or "Because I said so"

Things like that.

My mom used "5, 6, 7, 8..." When I was in trouble and if I didn't stop before 10 I would get a spanking.. she started off at 5 because I would wait til 8 to stop whatever I was doing. Lol, I was a smart cookie =]

  • "Don't ask me why. I'm your mother, that's why!" I think why is the most disrespectful response to any command. "Don't waste or make a mess." I say that one a thousand times a day.

    I never liked "Because I said so" when I was a kid. Now, it makes so much sense.
