Some that I remember…
“Stupid little sh!t”
“Hate I brought you into this world”
…and the best quote…
“Horses ass” …She even had a trophy made with the hind end of a horse. I still have the trophy. It states on the little brass plate “Sammy, the worlds greatest”
I didn’t have a great childhood, but it made me stronger. It helped me understand you don’t treat people like that. I’m a better person today for what I endured.
If you don’t eat your carrots you’ll go blind.
Kudos to you, SP. I’ve seen some moms like that. Never envied those children.
Thanks JanCee. Weirdest thing is I have 2 younger female siblings that never endured it. I did find out 8 years ago that I had an older sister though that was “discarded” by my father. My older Sister and I are great and now, very close even though we never knew of one another for 52 years.
As I said, I’m so much better for it. I was a Dad. My Wife is my best friend and Mother to our 2 kids. Hardships make people stronger and better, we learn from the history and don’t repeat it.
“You’re a knot head, but you’re my knot head” Lord have mercy!
Get your fingers out of your ears, what are you doing digging for potatoes ?
All true, but I’m not letting your mother off the hook, SP–nor your father either. So glad you pulled lemonade out of all those lemons! (I will note in passing that my sister and I had entirely different childhoods from our brother, The Prince–all from the same parents, all raised in the same household. Guess whose lives are better now?
It’s okay…I let it go. Never would consider treating my 2 kids the way I was…honestly I wouldn’t treat a dog the way I was. But…it’s not worth dwelling on. And yes…I know exactly who has a better life…
I wish I’d listened to what she told me as a child…I can’t tell you what she bloody told me; I didn’t listen!
my mom always said,“no good deed goes unpunished”
IF WE ROLLED OUR EYES AT A COMMENT “WHAT ARE YOU DOING, LOOKING FOR BRAINS”
Don’t forget to iron the sheets and pillow cases.
Mostly, I love you and Did you do your Bible lessons?
One more thing my mom use to say was…Bodie if you entered a beauty contest and you were the only one that entered you would still loose.
