Here it is Friday and I have the rest of the things Mother Taught Me, and to the shigrin of my own two sons, the same things I taught them as their mother. Heres hoping there may be a few you could use on your own children or grandchildren, or not if you want to remain popular with them...
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION
"Stop acting like your father."
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... ENVY
"There are millions of less fortunate children in the world who don't have wonderful parents like you do."
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... ANTICIPATION
"Just wait until your father gets home."
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... RECEIVING
"You are going to get yours when we get home young lady."
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... MEDICAL SCIENCE
If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they are going to get stuck that way."
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... ESP
"Put your sweater on; don't you think I know when you're cold?"
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... HUMOR
"When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, you won't be laughing then."
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... HOW TO BECOME AN ADULT
"If you don't eat all your vegetables, you'll never grow up."
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... GENETICS
"You're just like your lazy father."
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... ROOTS
"Shut that door behind you. Do you think you were born in a barn?"
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... WISDOM
"When you get to be my age, then you'll understand."
MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT... JUSTICE
"One day you'll have kids, and I hope they turn out just like you."
There are probably many more lessens learned at the hand of my MOTHER. She was, and remains a wise and out spoken woman of the times...
