  • Money don't grow on trees.

    Stop being Fresh, my dad said that all the time.

  • I'm gonna' snatch you bald-headed.

    My mom was not the in charge kind of mom, we ran all over her. To hear her spout a threat like this just made us laugh.

    *********
    It will look better on.

    She would say this when she bought us ugly clothes. We would respond "yeah, on fire"

    **************
    Go ahead and keep doing that. God will knock the sense into you.

    After having 4 kids she knew that it was a waste of breath to tell us to stop something, such as climbing a tree, or wrestling eachother. Those were things we had to learn on our own would cause pain, because of course, parents never knew what they were talking about and kids of course are invinvible. So she would just remind us, we will get hurt....that was Gods way of teaching us our lesson.

  • My favorite saying my mom has is "just because you can doesn't mean you should". She always said that when we got into trouble. I even say it to my kids sometimes lol.

  • My mom would always say "It doesn't matter who started it, it takes two to fight, but it only takes one to end it". I tell this to people to this day. My children are only one year and three weeks, so I have a while before they'll hear it. My mom used to say that all the time to us four girls. It's true though. I will always remember that.

  • If you can't say something nice then don't say anything. Use your head for something other than a hat rack. It took me a long time to figure that out.
