A Call For "Momisms"

Patch invites you to share your most memorable "Momisms." This photo serves as a perfect example: "If you keep that up, your face might stay like that."

'Momisms' Shout Out

Do you have any ‘momisms’  you might have cringed at because you heard them a thousand times as a child ?  Maybe you’re a parent now and you find yourself saying those same things to your kids.  Here’s a few of the most popular ‘momisms’ to get you thinking... ones my mom used (more times than I care to remember):

  • Why, because I said so, that’s why!
  • You live under my roof, you live by my rules!
  • I hope someday you have kids that are just like you!
  • Money doesn’t grow on trees.
  • Do as I say, not as I do.

Let  Patch know the ‘Momisms’ you grew up with. Did they make a lasting impression on you or did you throw them right out the window? Send us your  thought’s via the "email the author" tab and we just might quote you in our upcoming Mothers Day ‘Momisms’ article.

my mother had me convinced that if i were to misbehave in a restaurant that "The boss " would make me stay and wash all the dishes in the whole place. Needless to say, I listened. Thanks mom! lol

My Mom always told us to keep the noise down or we'd wake the people downstairs.....LOL We lived in a single family ranch......LMAO No wonder we were always afraid to go down cellar alone.....Thanks, Mom!! LOL
