    Grandma said "Be Good and You'll always be Happy."
    Mom said "Never Empty Handed to the Kitchen Go"
    I said "I don't chew my cabbage twice."
    Son said "It is what it is". I say "THEN FIX IT!" I just threw that in because that is one saying I hate worse than anything.

    I have also heard this, but from my Father, and I am sure that the mental image you are getting is correct! LOL!

    Just because your friends jump off the bridge it doesn't mean you have to jump too!

    My dad used to say he would kick your *#@ up on your shoulders. If we were pouting he would say stick your lip out a little further and a crow will come along and build a nest on it.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    My mom's favourite: I brought you into this world, I can take you out of it ...

    My response? But then you'd have to spend the rest of your life in jail, so is it really worth it???

    Since there is a possibility AngelaNR and I were raised by clone moms our moms could have been sisters:-) .

    The one time I tried that same response ....her reply was " nah all I will need is one of your teachers to testify and not a jury in the world will convict me".

    Another of her favorites was "the road to hell is paved with good intentions"

    "You have to suffer to be beautiful." This was usually said when she was pulling my hair into a tight ponytail!

    My mom always said "People in Hell want ice water." Now she hears that from me.
    Also, "A watched pot never boils."

    I've told my kids most the ones that have been said on here; however, I told them if you lay with dogs you will get fleas, birds of a feather stick together and if you play the game-you will get the name.

    Most important "momism" I told my kids to make sure they were done being carefree, before they had babies, because from then on you are a MOM first and foremost, and forever.
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    "What part of NO don't you understand?"

    "Don't cross your eyes, they'll get stuck that way."

    "Just wait until your father gets home!" (I always loved this one!)

    "Soup is only a belly wash. You need to eat real food."

    One positive saying (which she always said in Yiddish) translated: "Go in good health" ("Zie Geshundt")

    The only place that housework comes before quilting is in the dictionary.

    Stand up straight, you look like a lizard going to war. I told my Mother I spent many years looking down at lizard's hoping to see what one looks like.

    If the dog hadn't stopped to poop, he would have caught the rabbit.

    This was my fathers saying. He used it every time we said "if" when we explained our behavior. I did not use it with my kids.

    If everyone jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, would you jump too? That was my Mom, used anytime one of us wanted to do something because the other kids were doing it.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    I always hated the crying thing. My parents favored it, too, and it was often followed by a smack to the face.

    Even as a kid, I knew that was dumb. Of course, I never told my parents because then I would really have had something to cry about!

    And you can't pick your room mate in jail.

    That's a 'Momism" that I've never heard any other Mom but me say. Is it original?

    Pretty is as pretty does....my grannie convinced all of us (52 at last count) that we were beautiful with that saying.
    Make every day count for something!

    My favorite is The only difference between a slob and a snob is the spelling.

    Love to quilt and play with the great grandkids
