Mother’s Day is on Sunday! We at The Bradford Exchange have been gearing up for this special day for months, offering unique gifts for Mom that are sure to make her smile, which has made me really reflect on what makes moms so wonderful. As a child, my mom had an answer for everything, and I think that even as adults, many of us look to our mothers for comfort, advice and a source of unconditional love. After all, “Mother knows best!”
At times very sweet, and other times a little sassy, I’ve compiled my list of top 10 “Mom-isms” that I know I’ve heard many times in my life, so scroll down to see if any of these ring a bell. And, if it made you smile, make sure to share this post with friends and family!
1. Nobody ever said life was fair.
2. Because I said so, that’s why!
3. I wouldn’t trade you for the world.
4. I don’t care who started it!
5. One day you’ll thank me.
6. When I was your age…
7. What part of “no” don’t you understand?
8. You’ll always be my baby.
9. Wait until you have children!
10. I’ll always love you!
I know that when I have kids, I’ll definitely put a few of these into my rotation! I’d love to hear which ones from this list you’ve heard (or even used on your own children) in the comments below, and if you have any more classic “mom-isms” up your sleeve.
