Yesterday I was on Associated Content and one of their calls for content was to write a Mother's Day Poem...I accepted it and then realized oh man, i don't know what to write here without it being too mushy or fluffy... So I decided to go with a poem written from all the things Moms say like "You'll poke your eye out" - "Don't sit so close to the TV" - "I don't care what your friends think"...I am pretty happy with how it turned out! You can read it here: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/714841/momisms_things_moms_say.html So what is your favorite "Mom-ism?" What are things your mom used to always say to you or things you find you contantly say to your kids? Share them here!

I went and read your poem. My goodness, I do believe I've said every one of them. I don't have one to add right now, you've covered my entire repertoire!

My mom use to always say that she got tired of saying the same thing over and over again, hehe. She would tell use to keep our elbows off the table and chew with our mouth closed. My mom was pretty strict when it came to manners.
