Some MORE Things Mom Taught Me

My mother taught me IRONY -
"Keep crying and I'll give you something to cry about."

My mother taught me FORESIGHT -
"Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident."

My mother taught me complex Physics -
"If I yelled because I saw a meteor coming toward you, would you listen THEN?"

My Mother taught me to THINK AHEAD -
"If you don't pass your spelling test, you'll never get a good job."

My mother taught me how to BECOME AN ADULT -
"If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up."

My Mother taught me about WISDOM -
"When you get to be my age, you will understand."

My mother taught me about HOPE & JUSTICE -
"One day you'll have kids ... and I hope they turn out just like you!"

My mother taught me HUMOR -
"When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me!"


It's quite worrying -- I've actually heard myself say the first one. (And I've only been a mother five months!)

My mother and aunts have fun when I complain about feeding this Very Fussy Feeder -- they give various versions of the penultimate one. Apparently I was a little difficult over food, too. Or so they say. What would they know?

Looks like my Ferber book is making its way back to me. If you can mail me your address, I will send it to you.
