It’s not until you have kids of your own that you catch yourself saying the same things your mother said to you. We call them MUM-ISMS, those harsh sounding and yet so sweet phrases from our mums that made our childhood so special.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner we’ve compiled a list of our favourite #MUMISMS.
How many of these classic quotes have you heard your mum say…?
“Because I said so, that’s why!”
“I brought you into this world, I will take you out!”
“Close that door! Were you born in a tent?”
“I’m your mother, not your maid!”
“How do you know you don’t like it if you haven’t tasted it?”
“This is why we can’t have nice things.”
“You’d lose your head if it wasn’t screwed on!”
“Do you think I’m made of money?”
“Don’t put that in your mouth; you don’t know where it’s been!”
“You will ALWAYS be my baby.”
