Mommy quotes

These are some of my favorite Mommy-quotes:

Motherhood: Where everyday is a total waste of Make-up.
-Bumper sticker

Mother always said that honesty was the best policy, and that money isn't everything. She was wrong about other things too.
- Writer Gerald Barzan
Things all mothers miss: Reading,
taking a 15-minute shower without interruption,
a car without crumbs,
Life without worry
- anonymous

The story of a mother's life: Trapped between a scream and a hug (AMEN)
- cartoonist Cathy Guisewite

Things ALL mothers say: Don't run holding scissors
Want me to kiss it and make it better?
I can't even hear myself think!

The most devoted friend, lover, or even husband would never call you in a panic to warn you of the dangers of nylon-crotched panties.

The real menace in dealing with a five-year-old is that in no time at all you begin to sound like a five-year-old.

My personal Favorite still remains, although I haven't actually caught myself saying this yet:

Don't forget to wear clean underwear in case you are in a car accident.

I have an enornous book of these sayings and they make me smile. Let me know if you enjoyed reading them and I will post more from time to time.

My mother's really big on warning me about crises like the discovery that nylon underwear may promote infection.

I think she watches too much Dateline.

PS Yes, go ahead and add me. I would have emailed, but I couldn't find a address. :)

Waste of Makeup, indeed.
