Mother's Day Mom-isms

Do you remember all those things Mom used to say? Some were words of wisdom. Some were educational.  Some were warnings. And some of them you just didn't understand until you grew up and started using them on your own kids. We fondly call them "momisms".

Well, here is our list of those favorite sayings. Join the fun. Please email us with your own. Leave your name and city to post online, or contribute one anonymously. Email a "Mom-ism" now.
