Lessons from Mom

Getting together with family always takes me back to those wonder-filled years growing up... Here are a few things I learned from my Mom:

My mother taught me CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS... "I just scrubbed that floor. Go outside and bleed in the entry!"

My mother taught me LOGIC... "If you fall off that swing and break your neck, you can't go to the store with me."

My mother taught me MEDICINE... "If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they're going to freeze that way."

My mother taught me to THINK AHEAD... "If you don't pass your spelling test, you'll never get a good job!"

My mother taught me ESP... "Put your sweater on, don't you think that I know when you're cold?"

My mother taught me to MEET A CHALLENGE... "What were you thinking? Answer me when I talk to you...Don't talk back to me!"

My mother taught me HUMOR... "When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me."

My mother taught me how to BECOME AN ADULT... "If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up."

......Thanks mom....I grew up even though Fido ate most of my veggies....I'm Just Sayin.........

My mom taught me that "Because I said so", "Because I'm the mother", and "Because my nametag says 'Mom'" were perfectly acceptable answers to any question.

Yeah...I used those myself when mine was still at home...now I can use because I'm the Grandma, I said so, and I think it's time for you to home, with the grandkids... whatever works I say...
