Yeah, but only because you keep moving them around.

Told me how to use apostrophes correctly. Tongue

RE: Things mom's do
As a mom, I can certify that my number one task is: worry.

Even though my children are very competent, trustworthy adults, I CONSTANTLY WORRY ABOUT THEM (either consciously or unconsciously).

It just comes with the job.

But at one point, you can't let them know you're worried: that's the kicker.

(I may have to start a thread about the challenges of empty-nesting very soon, but I can't face it just yet).

Your faith is not evidence, your opinion is not fact, and your bias is not wisdom

RE: Things mom's do
My mom would lick her thumb and use it to wipe dirt of my face. Ewww. I hated that. Especially when she would do it in front of other people. Apparently it was a common thing, because my friends complained of the same. Do any of you mothers here do that?
I swear that when I'm a mother myself, I will always have wet wipes on me! I've been sufficiently traumatized.

Whaddya talkin. Mom spit is like the next best thing to an antibiotic. Yes

We were super poor and had to be near death's door to even contemplate going to a doctor. When we'd get all scraped up my mother would have the dog lick our boo-boos. It seemed to work just fine. My mother deduced that if the dog licked it's ass and it didn't kill him then his saliva must be pretty potent stuff.

One time I got a giant sliver of wood underneath my skin and she made a poultice out of flour and milk and something else... I forget what, and it pulled the darned sliver out of my skin. It took a few days but it worked.

When I was a kid she'd give me whisky and honey for a cold. I'd be so loopy I didn't care if I had a cold. Tongue:

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

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 currently have a bit of a cold. And whisky on the shelves.... Your mother being a wise woman, maybe I should try her approach. Consider
Just, without the honey. You don't put honey in an Islay!

Moms wear mom jeans and worry a lot. Duh.


ETA: My mom's jeans are still more mom jean than mine (complete with fanny/hip pack), but I still also get the claim. Girl_nails
