** 9/20 see below ....


Not in a music mood, so thought I'd try something different ...


Being a mom, I am amazed at times what I hear coming out of my mouth to my kids. I remember long ago and far away (LOL) thinking "I'll never say that to MY kids...." but, alas, I do it regularly.

Also, there are so many thought-provoking one-liners about life .... I thought it might be interesting to see which ones you guys know and use ... feel free to post - just sorta kinda clean ... TIA .. :)

FIRST UP FOR ME:

Mama said they'd be days like this!
(I also say -- but she never said there would be this many or for so long ... ) LOL

"Because I said so."

"You can't go anywhere till your room is clean."

"One day you will laugh about it."

"and just who are you calling a drama queen; look in the mirror...."

LOL .. back to work ...

Hello Scarlett,

Hope you stop by your WU blog at some point.
I know I see you on FB but still wanted to leave you a Merry Christmas greeting here.


From our Home to Yours
Merry Christmas and a Healthy & Happy New Year 2012!






"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons.
It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn%u2019t before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn%u2019t come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."

- Dr. Seuss

Life is like a box of chocolates ... u never know what you are going to get .....



I tripped Sunday night ... caught the metal hurricane shutter edge between my pinky and ring finger .. fractured my hand bone, probable surgery next week .. going to see a hand surgeon .

this is significant because I type for a living.. so ... now applying for short=term disability cause I'm not quite typing my normall 100+ words per minute with one hand LOL

so .. now I have some unwanted time off ... maybe I'll get to catch on some reading!! lol

I never heard that one but it sounds about right!

remember
"Stop that crying or I'm going to give you something to cry about!"
(I grew up during the era of spankings!)

Hi Gamma!!

Here's one that always puzzled me as a kid:
"Cat's fur to make kitten britches"

I could imagine someone knitting little kitten pants out of cat fur?? As an adult I learned it was her response to me asking, "What fer?" (or "what for?" depending on your accent)
;)

"Well, if everyone jumps off a bridge would you jump off it with them?"
(answer to everyone's doing it)

"Don't go into the water until you know how to swim"
(My mother's favorate she could not swim)


"You better watch it your face could freeze like that."

A few more:

Two wrongs don't make a right.

Were you raised in a barn? (used with the inevitable leaving the outside door open in 100-degree temps)

"Because I'm your mother."
It's a lot like "Because I said so." but it was the one when I was a kid I swore I'd never say to my kids. I would think, "what kind of reason is that??" --- So, when my kid came along I made a point to explain the reasons why I said NO to what she wanted or wanted to do. I had this realization when she was about 10 that she'd make a good lawyer. Every reason I'd give for why she couldn't do something she would shoot down. I'd give another reason, she'd argue it. I finally had to play the "Because I'm your mother AND I said so!" card and I've told all new mothers since to just go ahead and start out with it. It will save stress in the long term. Once I switched to that one we had a lot fewer fights.

Just because your friends can do it doesn't mean you can.
