Motherisms

"No feet where we eat" I heard myself tell Elsie these exact words this week and realized that I am officially a mother. I mean ya, duh I have two kids and of course I knew I was a mom, but now that Elsie is coming into her own and needs more guidance and rearing I find myself saying things that, well... let's face it, moms say. These aren't necessarily things my mom said but just moms in general. I searched real quick for the top 10 Motherisms and was relieved to find I haven't used any of these yet. I say yet because my children are young and I'm bound to say a few of these if not all.

Top Ten

  • “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?"
  • “Why? Because I said so, that's why!”
  • “Money doesn’t grow on trees!”

Here is a glimpse into my Mother's Day weekend.

a bit of shopping here

...and Micah finished hanging our wall-callage today. This made my weekend!


As my children grow and I am faced with new challenges and blessings as a mother I find it hard to not think of my own mama and all she did and continues to sacrifice for my brothers and myself. I love her so much and can only hope to impart on my kiddos the love she showed me. I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend filled with love while celebrating your mommies or your own motherhood.

First of all, I've used every single one of those top 10 sayings. And B's only 8.
Second, I love the way the collage wall looks and yay for cushions that are the right color!
