What did she say?

  1. Always wear clean underwear in case you are knocked down.
  2. Are you going out dressed like that?
  3. Don’t go out with wet hair, you’ll catch cold.
  4. Beds are NOT made for jumping on.
  5. Bored! How can you be bored? I was never bored at your age
  6. Close the door! You weren’t born in a barn
  7. Don’t eat that, you’ll get worms!
  8. Don’t make me get up!
  9. Don’t run in the house
  10. Don’t talk with your mouth full!

  1. Mothers are always right 🙄

    “Don’t bite your nails, you’ll get appendicitis”

    I never bit my nails but I still got acute appendicitis!

    “Eat your greens, it’ll make your hair curl”

    I love my veg but my hair is dead straight!

    I know I used to tell my own kids…

    “Eat your runner beans, you’ll run faster”

  2. @Primal – Followed by “If I have to come up those stairs you’ll……”!

    @Steph – “Eat your runner beans, you’ll run faster” I love it!

    @Dave – Thats a new one to me.

  3. “Come to the table right now. What are you waiting for, an engraved invitation?”

    “Close that door! Were you born on a hill where the doors blow shut?”

    ‘Eat those Brussel Sprouts and be glad you’re not one of the starving Armenians.”

    “Don’t cross your eyes like that. They might stay that way.”

    “Eat your crusts so you will get curly hair like Shirley Temple.”

    “A new doll! Do you think money grows on trees?”

    “I want this, I want that. Yes, and the devil wants ice water.”

    ” Wish in one hand and pee in the other and see which gets filled up first.”

  4. ‘Ask your dad’ – the usual reply if I was trying it on for something ridiculous. Of course, Dad’s reply was ‘Ask your mum…’

  5. Do as I say, not as I do!
    Sorry be damned you’ll have to be thumped (in broad Lancashire accent)
    Get away from the mirror or the Devil will take you
    Upon being asked ‘what’s for dinner’ – Kippers Eyes and Custard
    Upon being asked ‘where’s mum?’ – She’s run away with a black man

  6. @Nancy – I love the engraved invitation! 😀

    @Jen – I thought we were the only ones running round in circles looking for an answer!

    @Baino – My mother had always run away with a soldier.

  7. Baino’s great comments reminded me of another one.

    “What’s for dinner?” “FRIED ICE”

  8. Nancy

    The answer to the “What’s for dinner?” question in Jack’s home was always the same: “Three jumps at the cupboard door!”

    Are you listening Magpie? I think this is where you came in over a year ago!

  9. I don’t think she ever had to say anything. All she had to do was look at you in “that way”, and you knew what she meant…
