Well-Known Mom Sayings!

Since the kids are on Christmas break I'm pretty sure I've said each one of these at least 3 times! How many more days until they go back? Help!
  • Are you deaf or something?
  • It's like I'm talking to a brick wall!
  • As long as you live under my roof, you'll do as I say.
  • Call me when you get there, just so I know you're okay.
  • Did you brush your teeth?
  • Do you think your socks are going to pick themselves up?
  • Don't go out with a wet head, you'll catch cold.
  • Don't make me get up!
  • Don't sit too close to the television, it'll ruin your eyes.
  • Turn that down, you're gonna be deaf!
  • I didn't ask who put it there, I said "Pick it up!"
  • I can't wait for you to have children just like you.
  • I'm not your cleaning lady!
  • Look at me when I'm talking to you.
  • Money does NOT grow on trees.
  • No child of MINE would do something like that.
  • Nobody asked you.
  • Put that down! You don't know where it's been!
  • Someone is going to end up crying.
  • There's enough dirt in those ears to grow potatoes!
  • Watch your mouth!
  • What did I say the FIRST time?
  • What part of NO don't you understand?
  • When I was a little girl...
  • Close your mouth when you eat!
  • When I was your age.....
  • Who died and left you boss?
  • Who taught you THAT? You didn't learn that in this house!
  • You can't find it? Well, if you'd put things where they belonged, you wouldn't have this problem.
  • You won't be happy until you break that, will you?
  • Your father is going to hear about this when HE gets home!
  • Some day you will thank me for this. SMACK!!!
  • If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all
  • How can you have nothing to wear? Your closet is FULL of clothes!
  • Don't use that tone with me!
Thanks for all the Anniversary Wishes yesterday! Jim was on call last night so I celebrated by taking my kiddos and my son's friend to Perkins for dinner and the bookstore! Now, do I know how to celebrate or what?

No 'Because I SAID SO!' yet? My kids will ask a question, get a look from me, and answer themselves with this now, lol.

Here's one more for your list that I regularly use:
"Asked and answered!"
How many times do your kids ask the same question over and over hoping to get a more favourable answer the 2nd time?

Mine is 20 and still living at home so my favorite saying for her now is " You live here too you know?!".
