SoCS~ Remembering childhood phrases

This is a nice prompt and perfect for Mother’s Day weekend.

I remember in Puerto Rico my mother would have phrases that sometimes didn’t make any sense; however, they were powerful.  Funny thing at the I didn’t understand it until I started using it on my kids. My mother has to deal with six kids, she uses those phrases to keep us in shape. She would say “don’t make me get up”, that was the warning.

Also, my mother uses the famous chancla (flip flops). She would throw that chancla to us and never miss. She was an expert.  

-A few of her phrases I still remember:

-I’m telling you for your own good

-Put on some VapoRub

-When you have your own children, you will remember me.

-I don’t care about the rest; I care about you.

-My house is not a hotel or a restaurant

-While you live in this house…

-When I give you permission?

-This hurts me more than it hurts you

-And if your friend throws themselves out of the window so, would you?

-Because I said so!

 Funny phrases coming from this Puerto Rican family. I miss you, mami.

 Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there.

Happy Mother’s Day!

To my daughter have a wonderful day with the girls, you deserve it.

To my sister and my two sisters in law enjoy the day with your kids.

To all my friends have an amazing day with family.

To my mom and my grandmother in heaven, I miss you and both are in my heart. When it comes to days like this one, I remember you and I wish you can be here with me. Mom thank you for giving me life and for raising me the way you did. You leave us too soon and you didn’t have the chance to meet all the grandkids (13) and great-grandkids (7 plus 2 coming soon). They are all wonderful, caring, and loving peoples same as you. Thank you, Mom and keep watching us from heaven.

And to me just watching my family being happy is already a blessing. So I will be enjoying a peaceful day.

To all of you, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
