Things mom's do
I feel like being nostalgic.

1. I would often come home after having accidents covered in blood from head to toe, barely able to move. My mom would grab the alcohol (or peroxide) and walk up to me and say "we need to clean this, it'll get infected!" I would respond with "NO WAY THAT STUFF STINGS!" she would come back with "No it doesn't (then she would find the ONE spot that wasn't an open wound and dab some on it) See it feels just fine" me "ok" (She dumps the entire bottle on my wounds with me screaming loudly) .... I fell for this EVERY time.....

2. Told me broccoli was ice cream (we had never had ice cream or soda before so how would we know).

...hmm.... well.... those are the only two I can think of right now, I'm sure there's more I'll post as I come up with them.

What kinds of stuff did your mom's do?

RE: Things mom's do
I used to tell my son that he was my favorite son. I guess he was about 10 when he finally called me on the fact that he was my only son. Thumbsup

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: Things mom's do
I used to tell my daughters (they are four years apart in age) that I was going to beat one over the head with the other one if they didn't stop bickering.

A friend of mine told her three oldest she was going to send them outside to play with knives...her second oldest asked if she could have the biggest knife. Ohmy

RE: Things mom's do
I was prolly a terrible son, I'd spend all day out in the woods (sometimes for days on end), I mean no one ever seemed to care much that I was gone, but I'd always come back covered in blood cause I crashed my bicycle, or fell out of a tree or some stupid shit like that. Never broke a bone though, guess I was lucky there.

I grew up in a shack, out in the middle of the Arkansas wilderness. Me & my brother would do that, too. Shy When we were old enough dad taught us how to shoot, so we no longer had to worry about big cats, or stray dogs, or snakes. Big Grin That's when exploration really began to feel good. Laugh out load Never at night, tho! Confused Ma, and her Ma, told us evil things lurked in the darkness. Huh We wuz threw the door, and lockin it behind us, by sun-on-the-horizon time. Bechased

RE: Things mom's do
I was just a baby so I don't remember this but one of my older brothers, about 10 at the time, was off by himself fishing in the Truckee River up near Tahoe where we lived. He kept an extra fish hook in his pocket. Well somehow the fish hook worked it's way down and got stuck in one of his testicals. Dodgy

He somehow found his way home, I assume screaming all the way, and when he got home my mother got out some Mercurochrome, which I don't think is sold anymore, and got his pants and underwear off and told him "This is gonna hurt." When even your mother tells you it's gonna hurt, you'd probably better believe her. So with my other brothers roaring with laughter watching the whole scene, she somehow got the fish hook out of his testical while he screamed bloody murder. He didn't go fishing for about 3 years after that and claims he has never has caught a fish since then.

I got lots of "mom" stories.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I was swinging on a homemade swing that was in the tree in our yard. I leaned way back and scraped most of the skin off back in the process.

Mom drew a cat on my back with Mercurochrome. I suppose she was trying to make the injury a little more festive since it was my birthday (7th IIRC).

Worry.

Tell me to put on warmer clothes and be careful after dark.

That's a dad joke.
