Words of Wisdom You Thought You’d Never Say
“Just wait, one day you’ll have kids of your own.”
When that finally happened, what happened? I turned into my mother. Worse, I even sounded like her! The first time it happened, I had to stop for a second and realize, “I have become my mother.”
Here are some words of wisdom I thought I’d never, ever say (and I bet you didn’t either):
“I brought you into this world and I’ll take you out!” (haven’t used that one yet? Just wait until their hormones kick in)
“Just WAIT till your father gets home.” (well, I was a single parent, so in this case it was “just WAIT until I get home!”)
“I was not born yesterday, mister!”
“There are starving people in this world who would gladly eat your dinner!”
“You kids will be the death of me yet.”
“Don’t make me pull this car over….”
“This is gonna hurt me worse than it’s gonna hurt you.”
“You brought this on yourself.”
“Can’t never did.”

Thanks Mom, for all those words of wisdom. You were absolutely right, but you never said, “I told you so.”
Happy Mother’s Day!
