Thank you for the invitation to revisit some of my mother’s favorite lessons.
I hope when you grow up you'll have kids just like you.
o Always wear clean underwear … you never know.
o How to eat dinner with my ‘mouth shut’.
o Telling me a million times ‘not to exaggerate.’
o That if I keep making funny faces my face could freeze ‘that way’.
o ‘Shut the door – you don’t live in a barn.’
o ‘You can be anybody or anything you want except rude – don’t be rude.’
o ‘Eat your dinner – people are starving in Africa.’
o ‘Don’t make me come in there.’
o ‘Mind you Ps and Qs’.
o One of my favorites: ‘I hope when you grow up you’ll have kids just like you.’
