Happy Mother's day
Happy Mother's day
This year the 100 anniversary of mother's day
I hope each one of you have a Happy Mother's Day
With Mothers day right this weekend thought i'd share some famous mom sayings
Money does not grow on trees.
When you have your own house then you can make the rules!
Always change your underwear; you never know when you'll have an accident.
Don't make that face or it'll freeze in that position.
Be careful or you'll put your eye out.
What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
You have enough dirt behind those ears to grow potatoes!
Close that door! Were you born in a barn?
In the Bible, Eve is credited with being the "Mother of All the Living."
During the 1600's, England celebrated a day called "Mothering Sunday." Servants would go home to see their families, bringing cakes and sweets to their moms. This custom was called "going a-mothering". Each mother would recieve a simnel-cake (Latin for "fine flour) and mother's would give a blessing to their children.
If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
Don't put that in your mouth; you don't know where it's been!
