Mommy...isms

When we're with our kids all the time, we all have expressions we commonly say to our children. Here are some of them:

* Don't put your elbows on the table.

* Eat your vegetables, It's good for you.

* Don't sit too close to the television, It will ruin your eyes.

* Dont pick your nose in public.

* Look at me, I'm talking to you!

What about you moms, what are your favorite expressions?

Sit down, close your mouth and tell me why you....

My kids always burst out laughing at that one. "But MMOOOMMMM...how can I close my mouth and tell you anything."
And the good old standby:

If God wanted (insert name here)'s mom to be your mom He would have given you to her. But He didn't. He gave you to me and you will do as I say.

"Eat your food. Kids in Africa are starving. You don't know how lucky you are!"

LOL. I had to laugh because the first thing that ran through my head was:

Sit down, close your mouth and tell me why you....

My kids always burst out laughing at that one. "But MMOOOMMMM...how can I close my mouth and tell you anything."
