  • I'm guilty of using and hearing all that as a kid and with my kids
  • Number 12! Oh my goodness! I'm like you just spanked me, and I shouldn't be crying?! These were good ones and often heard!

  • LOL - seems as this nowadays doesn't work any longer as Moms aren't any longer respectful persons. At least this trend is obvious in some European countries.

  • Guilty on all charges ...heard them as a kid and said them to my kids :) Aren't mothers great? Thanks Robyn ...sure brought back memories.
