Things Mom Would Never Say

  • “How on earth can you see the TV sitting so far back?”
  • “Yeah, I used to skip school a lot, too.”
  • “Just leave all the lights on…it makes the house look more cheery.”
  • “Let me smell that shirt…Yeah, it’s good for another week.”
  • “Go ahead and keep that stray dog, honey. I’ll be glad to feed and walk him every day.”
  • “Well, if Timmy’s mom says it’s OK, that’s good enough for me.”
  • “The curfew is just a general time to shoot for. It’s not like I’m running a prison around here.”
  • “I don’t have a tissue with me…just use your sleeve.”
  • “Don’t bother wearing a jacket – the wind-chill is bound to improve.”

    Ha…I doubt few fathers would use those lines. 🙂 Thanks for the evening smiles.

    That takes me back – teenagers think parents are dumbos to be fooled. The top cartoon is a brilliant depiction of pushy mums – and I know a few.

    As a mother tired of arguing with her, I did once tell my daughter she could wear just her sweater on a day when a coat was required because she needed to learn I wasn’t ALWAYS wrong & I did sometimes know what I was talking about.

    Any of those lines would build a deep sense of insecurity!

    “If Timmy’s mom says it’s ok …… ” <<<< struck a chord with me! 🙂

    Loved these. Sounded like things my ex-husband would say!

    These are good – although, since taking up the obsessive exercise, I have eased off on the outer-garment policy. If I can run about in the snow in a t-shirt and shorts – maybe they will survive in a hoodie 🙂

      Gasp! And you call yourself a mother! Four layers, minimum, is the rule. 🙂

        And with three kids and four layers, I usually end up holding…9 items of clothing while they play…

    Priceless … my grandma said them neither and in all honesty I’m so happy that she didn’t *smile – She may have said – “I don’t have a tissue with me…just use your sleeve.” Have a great weekend now.

    That maze is amazing. Wish I had one of those when Elly was a toddler.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
