Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there. I hope that your day was as great as mine! A few weeks ago, at a Relief Society activity about parenting, I was given this list of things our mothers teach us. I thought it very fitting to share with you on a day such as today. I don't know who wrote it but it is probably one of the funniest things I've ever read!
Things My Mother Taught Me:
1. To appreciate a job well done:
"If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning!"
"You better pray that will come out of the carpet!"
3. Time Travel:
"If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!"
"Because I said so, that's why!"
"Make sure you always wear clean underwear incase you're ever in an accident."
"This room looks as if a tornado went through it."
7. The Circle of Life:
"I brought you into this world, and I can take you out of it."
8. Medical Science:
"If you don't stop crossing your eyes they are going to get stuck like that."
"When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me."
10. How to Become an Adult:
"If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up."
"You are just like your father."
"Shut that door behind you. Do you think you were born in a barn?!"
"You will sit here at this table until all that spinach is gone."
"When you get to be my age, you'll understand."
"One day you'll have kids and I hope that they turn out just like you!"
Mom, thank you for all you've taught me! :) Truly though, I love you so much and I hope that I can be even half the mother that you are!
