I came across a list of the most common things moms say to their kids – known as
“motherisms.” I prefer MOMISMS.
Here are the top motherisms
“If everyone else jumped off a cliff, would you do it too?”
“It’s all fun and games until someone pokes an eye out.”
“You’d forget your head if it wasn’t screwed on.”
“Elbows off the table.
“Don’t talk with your mouth full.
“Clean up your room, it looks like a tornado hit.”
“Do you think I was born yesterday?”
“Is that too much to ask?”
And every mother has said, “Why? Because I said so, that’s why!”
