SUNDAY TAKEAWAYS

19 May

346 Our children

I don’t know who to attribute it to and it’s entitled “THINGS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME” – definitely brings back memories and puts a smile on your face.  I could so relate to this from both sides, so I thought I would share it as a little light relief for Sunday Takeaways this week.

1. My mother taught me about WEATHER – “Your room looks like a tornado hit it.”

2. My mother taught me about RELIGION – “You better pray that comes out of the carpet.”

3. My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL – “If you don’t straighten up I’m going to knock you into the middle of next week.”

4. My mother taught me about OSMOSIS – “Shut your mouth and eat your tea.”

5. My mother taught me about the CIRCLE OF LIFE – “I brought you into this world, I can take you out.”

6. My mother taught me about ENVY – “There are millions of less fortunate children in the world who don’t have wonderful parents like you.”

7. My mother taught me about RECEIVING – “You are going to get it when we get home.”

8. My mother taught me about GENEOLOGY – “Shut that door…  Anyone would think you were born in a barn?”

9. My mother taught me about JUSTICE – “One day you’ll have kids… I hope they turn out just like you!”

10. My mother taught me about LOGIC – “Because I said so, That’s why.”

11. My mother taught me about STAMINA – “You’ll sit there until your carrots are all gone.”

12. My mother taught me about IRONY – “Keep crying. I’ll give you something to cry about.”

What we hand on to the next generation!  I know my girls will relate to most of the above,  #9 is a doozie – it’s my favorite taunt to them from across the seas.  I can’t wait!

Enjoy your Sunday wherever you are, whatever you are doing, whoever you are with.
