My Mom Says...

I'm pretty, if only I take time to comb my hair She also says I should eat better, because I'm way too thin already (I've always been thin mom!). My mom also says that I shouldn't spend so much time in front of the computer, being addicted to it is bad (but myLot is SO enjoyable! what am i to do?). She also says I shouldn't read in the dark, as it would seriously damage my eyes (but i have a light on! okay, not a VERY bright light, but still..). How about you? What does your mom say to/about you?

i had all of those told to me before, except the mylot thing. im a mom already and i can do whatever i want... when i was a younger, i would do what i have been told, but sometimes i forget it so it is told to me repeatedly especially that combing my hair thing

when my mom is here (she's here once a month, for a week or so), she always catches me at myLot and she assumes that i spend all my time in here. okay, maybe she's right . you don't often comb your hair back then, too?

As a mom...and now a grandmother...it's our job to teach our children life's lessons. I know you hate to be nagged...I did, too...but your mom sees it as giving you advice and guess what? One day you're going to actually want your mom's advice. In the meantime, humor her. Brush your hair, eat something, get up from the computer when she can notice that you have and get a better reading light. As to your question...my mom is 74 years old and she's still at it. My husband and I are going to fall off those motorcycles and kill ourselves. Why can't we act our age? I guess you NEVER stop hearing that one!

My mom hates ours because they're big Harleys and they're very loud. She says we go too fast (no we don't), she says we're going to have an accident (we can have one in the trucks too), she says girls on motorcycles look cheap (I'm over 50 mommmm).

harleys. ooohhh... i guess it's because our moms have never tried riding a motorcycle during their time that's why they're paranoid and of course girls on motorcycles don't look cheap. they look cool!

I actually think i was a very obedient child growing up but my mom would say otherwise. Growing up my mum had to constantly remind me to put my toys back after I played with them, so much that she wouldn't allow me to pick up another toy to play with until i have placed the one which i already took out back where i gotten it from. As for meal times, I was never forced to eat vegetables, I loved them I would eat nothing but carrot sticks all day if my mum let me but no she said i had to try to be a normal kid and eat some ice cream though i always would fight with her then she'd give up trying to get me to eat ice cream. Lastly she would constantly force me to drink milk I hated milk as a child and still do today and my mum always says: for you my child nothing will ever change. though now i realized that i could face bone defeciancy if i don't take my milk.

i love vegetables too! we also never had problems when it comes to that, but one thing i hate eating is okra. i don't know if you know what that is, but it's gross! eww. maybe you can drink milk substitutes, like soy and rice. that way, you won't have to be forced to drink milk and you'd still retain your bone density as years pass!

My mom doesn't really say anything to me about me, its usually the other way around. I'm always telling my mom that she doesn't eat right, or that she needs to take her medicine right, and that she doesn't need to be doing this and that..lol. She's always falling asleep with the tv on and she ends up sleeping all night on her couch, its like I'm the mother..haha.

Yes I'm also spend most of the time before my computer.It's myLot that made me addicted to computer. Really myLot is so enjoyable.I don't bother for online income.It' so meager income.But I got so many good friends through myLot.I feel their discussions,comments and responses.I lost my mother.Now the role of my mother has been taken by my wife.She alerts me about the bad effect of computer. But I don't give my ear to her.

My mom says I need to pick my battles. Let the little things slide and only deal with the bigger issues.

the only thing i can remember what my mom always tell me back when i was still in school(basing from what you mentioned), is not to read in the dark.of course she's absolutely right.heheh!but i never heard her say about my appearance or compliments me, instead it's the opposite.ouch!!!it hurts coming from a mother..and worst, is when they start to compare me with my close cousin.i know she's pretty but why do they have to compare us?that's why i grew up struggling with inferiority complex..i think she doesn't worry that i might get astray or do something bad, or rebel from her.trusts me well huh??heheh!or is she just not concerned of me?huhuhu!anyways, my mom says also to get up early so i can do the household chores or atleast just sweep the floor, which i only do whenever i feel doing it.hahah!so lazy of me!by the way, i don't wanna give the impression here that my mom is bad or doesn't care about me..i think she's not just showy or expressive..

i'm sure your mom just wants you to look your best for your own sake. i read from one of the responders above that she followed her mom's advice and dressed up pretty and people around her liked her even more. and of course your mom is proud of you! i guess it's just her one way of advising you to glam up. and yeah, some moms aren't as showy as other moms. my mom wouldn't just come out and give me a hug. she never did that. but she shows me that she loves me in other ways, which I thoroughly appreciate

My mom is a little off in her head she would tell me one thing then another. If she complements me she would tell me that I look better with make up and my hair done and not in a ponytail so she would some times just tell me that I clean up good. But the thing is that I normally do not get dressed up or put makeup on and my hair is almost always in a ponytail. She would tell a their is this thing that would make you look skiny and it is great or there is a diet that is really nice but what I hear is you are a little overwait or just fat and I need to do do something. But when she is mad at me she would tell me I see your roles you should were something that would actually fit you. But there are somethings that I just think it's funny so I try not to pay mutch attention to her negative things.

who doesn't think their daughters/sons are the most good-looking people on earth my mom says i'm pretty too, although of course there's always a BUT ( like BUT you should comb your hair more often. tee hee) yep. agree with you that without mothers, this world would be a scarier place to live in

Mothers' words are precious, everything that comes out of their mouths are like gems and they are so precious. My mother used to tell me to pray always. She always remind me to go to sunday mass. She is a very pious catholic and she once told me that food is to our body while prayers is for our soul. The bible tells us - believe, pray and it will happen. No matter how difficult life is, with a prayerful life, everything does run smooth.

my mom says i should take pride in the way that look. i always wore baggy clothing and didn't think it was important but i really think shes right people talk to me more i wear make up now and i'm into fashion i think the best advice she ever gave me. i was happy being just plain mean but you feel better about yourself sometimes if you dress yourself up and do stuff for yourself. my mom also tells me just ignore people the worst ever, because the more people will pick with you if they think there is no consquences

it IS true that moms know best. hey, i'm glad you're being girly and all now when i was in high school i liked wearing baggy clothes, too (because that was also the "in" thing then) but when my mom started nagging me about wearing "proper" clothes, i heeded her advice and don't regret that i followed her advice until now.

It seems just like another mom..always tell what to do or any rules to be our attention. But basicly every mom acts like that cause they love us.. My mom always told me to finish my study so i could get the good job...( at the moment i'm busy doing my hobbies..) for me is normal if my mom so sourish...and nothing matter at all
