In honor of Mother's Day, I would like to post some of my Mom's favorite things to say to my sister and me:
1. "Listen and receive instruction!"
2. "You can get glad in the same shoes you got mad."
3. "How about I be the parent and you be the child?"
4. "Speak, beak!"
5. "Leave the room, I don't even want to see your face right now."
Of course, she said these things a lot and they ruined by life on a daily basis. As shocking as it may sound, I was a sensitive drama queen as a child....and teenager. I swore I would never say these things when I had kids.
Update: I have said all of them to my students and my son.
Happy Mother's Day to my fun, spunky, fiercely loyal tigress of a Mom. I'd be lost without you.
