Laughed out loud. One I remember is "don't walk away when I'm speaking to you". Or "Never mind how I know". I use to tell friends I was going to write a book called "Famous Mother Phrases". Because every Mother said them. Then I thought there must already be a book that they all read on what to say. LOL Miss you Mom.

My mother never said any of these things. One of her favorites was, "If you don't know, I'm not going to tell you." I think she was trying to teach me to be psychic, or something.

Oh, yes, she told me: you'll sit there until you've eaten your soup. It was a soup with beans, which I hated. Indeed, I thought the beans were little animals. She told me to eat that soup until i vomited it; She never gave me that soup again! I think I was 7 or 8.

None of us in the family would ever hurt an animal but when mother thought we were rubbing the dog too hard she would say "Quit wooling the dog". She is the only one I ever heard say that. My sister and I had a good laugh about it a few days ago. It was a good way of remembering her.

If I heard most of those once, I heard them 1000 times, and you're right, they are funny.
I particularly like, 'If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week.' My mother loved that one. My dad loved, ' Because I said so, that's why'.
My grandmother lived with us, forever, and she always said to me, 'Watch whats lying, not what's flying', because I was known for falling, frequently.
It's amazing how reading these sayings, brings back such memories.
