Mom's Sayings Otherwise Known as Momisms

I should have probably done this post for Mother's Day but I didn't think of it soon enough.  My mom has quite a few momisms or sayings in our family.  I thought I would share some of the things I remember her saying and found myself saying to my own kids.  Isn't it funny how we turn into our moms?  I can't think of anyone I would rather be like!  I am blessed to have such a great mom!  I wonder how long it will be before my daughters are hearing me come out of their moths too?

When it came to my Mom's bad habits, she was honest. She'd tell us "Do as I say, not as I do,"
I enjoyed your fun Momisms. I actually posted a new blog entry Monday night entitled "Momisms".

Mom's do seem to all have their little sayings. That momism you have mentioned is one of my dad's sayings lol.
