“ Do Your Best”

“All you can do is do your best and know that that is enough.”

“How you treat your family is how you are going to treat your spouse someday and right now I wouldn’t wish you on any man in the world.”

“Treat other people the way you want to be treated.”

“Be kind because it is the right thing to do, not because people are kind to you.  The people that need the most kindness are those who are not kind to others.”

“Choose to be a blessing.”

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, then be quiet.”

“Have your best get better.”

“People are inherently self centered, they don’t pay attention to what people look like or are wearing, if they notice then it is for a second or two and then they are back to thinking about themselves.  So if you are embarrassed by something remember people really don’t care.”

“They won’t buy the cow if the milk is for free.”

“Time shows everything.  People can’t be fake forever.  They eventually show their true selves.”

“You are not alone.”

“Be respectful to everyone.  You don’t have to like everyone, but you do have to be respectful of everyone.”

“As long as you live under my roof, you’ll do as I say.”

“Call me when you get there, just so I know you’re okay.”

“I am not your maid, your chef or any of those things.”

Don’t walk away when I’m talking to you!

Eat your vegetables, they’re good for you.

I don’t care what “everyone” is doing. I care what YOU are doing!

I don’t have to explain myself. I said no.

I hope someday you have children just like you.

I just want what’s best for you.

I will always love you – no matter what.

If God had wanted you to have holes in your ears (eyebrows, tongue, etc.) He would have put them there!

If it were a snake, it would have bitten you.

If wishes were horses…

If you could stay out last night, you can get up this morning.

If you don’t do it NOW, then when are you going to do it?

If you’re too sick to go to school, you’re too sick to play outside.

“This is not a short order restaurant.  You eat what is put in front of you.”

“If you aren’t hungry fine, but if you are hungry at all the first thing you need to eat is your vegetables.”

It’s not that I don’t trust you, it’s that I don’t trust everyone else.

Life isn’t fair.

Look at me when I’m talking to you.

“Mind your own business.”

“You are not the mother or the father.  I am the mother and when you get to be a mother you can parent your kids any way that you want.”

Shut the door! I’m not heating (air conditioning) the entire neighborhood!

Shut your mouth and eat.

So it’s raining? Good thing you don’t melt…..only the wicked witch of the west melts and you aren’t a wicked witch, so you will be fine.

So what if Bob’s mom let him do it? If Bob’s mom let him jump off the Empire State Building, would you want me to let you do it too?

What part of NO don’t you understand?

When I was a little girl…

When I was young we had respect for our elders, now look at the world!

When I was your age, I had to walk ten miles through the snow, uphill, by myself, to go to school.

When will you be back?

When you have your own house then you can make the rules!

Where do YOU think you’re going?

You can’t find it? Well, I can’t find it for you – I didn’t wear it!

You can’t find it? Well, I can’t find it for you – I’m not the maid!

You can’t find it? Well, if you’d put things where they belonged, you wouldn’t have this problem.

You can’t find it? Well, where did you leave it last?

You can’t start the day on an empty stomach.

You don’t always get what you want. It’s a hard lesson, but you might as well learn it now.

“I am done!”

You will ALWAYS be my baby.

Don’t run with a lollipop in your mouth.

Don’t stay up too late!

Don’t use that tone with me!

I don’t care who started it, I said stop!

I don’t care who started it, YOU stop it!

Now, say you’re sorry…and MEAN it!

Running away? Don’t let the door hit you in the rear.

Running away? I’ll help you pack.

Watch your language!

When you have kids of your own you’ll understand.

Where are you going?

Who are you going with? Do I know them?

You can’t judge a book by its cover.

“Be as beautiful inside as you are out.”

“Remember:  Follow God, Great Attitude, great effort, respect, and I love you!”

“God loves you no matter what, Mom and Dad love you no matter what and your siblings love you no matter what.”

“I love you forever and pray for you always.”
