Things Every Mom Says or Just My Mom
By All That Makes You on August 10, 2012
I love that Twitter is trending #ThingsEveryMomSays because if gives me a chance to share one of my favorite quotes my crazy mom used to say...
"Honey, I HAD you to do the dishes. You should be thanking the dishes. It is because of the dishes you exist."
Every year I think my mother was smarter than the year before.
Do you see all the boys looking at my mom and all of the little girls angy faces?
You can read a little funny about that below.
Here is a story about my mom called "Back Back Before You Could Just Go And Buy Boobies" that includes the obvious mention of boobs and chicken poop and how you can use one to get the other.
Recently, when asking one of my 12 year olds to empty the dishwasher, he replies with, "I'll give you $20 to do it for me mom."
I say, "That is terrible. What would I be teaching you if I were to say yes?"
My 12 year old replies, "OK, fine $40."
Now I am thinking I may just take his money to teach him a whole new lesson. I turned around and shot him a look, completely accidental, and he began unloading. Lesson learned...12 year olds these days have too much cash.
