Happy Mothers Day!

To all of the Sisters in the Willow Wood Ward

We all have an opportunity to Mother, whether it be our own children, our nieces and nephews, 
or our friends or neighbors children. 

Today is a tribute to our God given attribute to 
love and nurture children.

Mom's know everything
Every mom has a favourite quote and a special tone to scold or teach a lesson to their recalcitrant kids. We might hate this momism as a kid but we all so much miss them when we grow up. These harsh sounding and yet so sweet advices from mothers is what makes our childhood so special. They are endearing!  Though we hate our moms for being so harsh in their statements, ironically we all use the same momism that we received from our mothers on our kids. Oh, how much we appreciate our mothers for coming up with such perfect 
one liners!

       Here is list of some of the most common momisms. This motherly advise transcends the borders of time, space, language and culture.
For kids are kids everywhere and 
Mom are always Mom...caring, concern, 
all knowing 
and full of love

  • Money does not grow on trees.
  • Don't make that face or it'll freeze in that position.
  • If I talked to my mother like you talk to me....
  • Always change your underwear; you never know when you'll have an accident.
  • Be careful or you'll put your eye out.
  • What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
  • You have enough dirt behind those ears to grow potatoes!
  • Close that door! Were you born in a barn?
  • If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
  • Don't put that in your mouth; you don't know where it's been!
  • Be careful what you wish for, it might come true.
  • What's meant to be, is meant to be. (Mom only used this when something bad happened or when you experienced a disappointment.)
  • It doesn't matter what you accomplish, I'll always be proud of you.
  • I hope that when you grow up, you have kids "Just Like you"! (Also known as the "Mother's Curse")
  • Because I'm your mother that's why.
  • This is why we can't have nice things.
  • If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times.
  • Eat your vegetables, there are starving children in China (Africa, Vietnam)  
  • If you fall out of that tree and break you leg , don't come running to me.
  • Someday your face is going to stick like that. 
  • Yes, I *AM* the boss of you.
  • Because I said so. 
  • Just wait till your father gets home. 
  • No dessert till you clean off your plate.
  • I brought you into this world and I can take you OUT !!
  • I've got eyes in the back of my head, that's how
  • Get that thing out of your mouth! (or nose)
  • Just you wait until you have kids of your own - then you'll understand
  • You tell that bully to cut it out or you'll tell the teacher...
  • I slave for hours over a hot stove and this is the thanks I get?!
  • Honestly... You'd lose your head if it wasn't screwed on!
  • Honestly, that cardigan looks great on you - the girls had better watch out with you around!
  • Bored! How can you be bored? I was never bored at your age.
  • Who'll end up walking, bathing and feeding it...?
