How many of you remember your Mother saying this to you?
"I'm only doing this for your own good."
"Be careful what you wish for; you might get it.'
"If I had talked to your grandmother the way you talk to me . . . "
"Always put toilet paper on the seat - but don't sit down! Squat!"
"Don't sit so close to the televsion set, it'll ruin your eyes."
"The important thing is to get a good bra."
"Don't wear white until Easter or after Labor Day."
'If you want to be beautiful you have to be willing to suffer a little."
"Get your hair out of your eyes!"
"Don't go in the water for 30 minutes after eating."
"Do you think your generation invented sex?"
And my favorite "Stand up straight" and then she'd dig her thumb into our spine. LOL
My sister and I always had to: lift our feet up, cross our fingers, touch the roof of the car, touch something blue, make a wish and hold our breath every time we went over the railroad tracks.
And we ALWAYS had to sit down and count to 30 if we forgot something in the house and had to go back in.
Just a little trip down memory lane for me today - I don't know what got me started thinking about my Mom. She was a hoot. "Lucy" legs and all.
Boy I wish she could see my kids!!!
Gotta go get my hair done . . . BYE!
