    My dad use to say "He wouldn't pay a nickel to watch an ant eat a bail of hay"

    Grandma use to say "She's pregnant again, shoot birth control is only one cent" She later explained to me that if you keep a penny between your knees she wouldn't have gotten pregnant!

    "Close the screen door, your letting the flies out"

    When I'd be crying about something "Do you want me to give you something to cry for" Well no I am already crying!

    Do as I say, not as I do

    He won't buy you a beer, his pockets go all the way up to his elbows

    They are too young to get married, they are still wet behind the ears (what they said about my husband & I)

    My uncle when a good looking girl walked by "Damn her legs to all the way up"

    snug as a bug in a rug

    happier than a pig in mud

    He can kiss it where the sun don't shine

    I know there's more but can't think of them either! Brain goes blank when you're trying to remember!

    My mom always said: one kid is one kid. Two kids are half a kid and three kids are no kid at all.

    Now doesn't that just make your butt want to chew gum?

    One that totally drove me nuts was what my mom says...." I'll cross that bridge when I get to it" Funny thing is that she gets to that bridge and cant cross it.

    My father always said " you kids have a lot to learn" Mother said " I'll bet you a cent to a cookie" Really enjoying these, brings back so many memories.

    My Grandmother always said "your eyes are bigger than your stomach' meaning I put too much on my plate, and "don't spit in the wind" if I complained about someone.
    The sayings in this thread sure bring back a lot of memories. Thank you to everyone who shared.

    I told my kids 'I'll slap you so hard your kids will be born dizzy. They didn't think it was too funny.My MIL used to say-A mule can only do what a mule can do.Like it or lump it- was another I told my kids. My DH's favorite is -between a rock and a hard place.
