    Oh, and don't forget, our mothers also taught us about Starvation in China: "You better clean your plate! Don't you know that there are millions of starving children in China that would love to have your brussell sprouts!"

    :LMAO: That's hillarious... If I talked to my mother I would send this to her. Oh man it's like reading them brought back all memories. Someone must have branded these statements into all mother's. It's scary ha ha I loved it!

    I received that earlier this week, and I thought I would sent it to my mom. She sent it right back to me with a note, and said the last one I should know about-- that she kept saying that my kids would turn out just like me!!

    I had read that before, but I had forgotten alot of it. That was great! I sent it to my Mom. She will love it (and remember saying/doing most of them!) I think it must have been written in "The Mom's Handbook", b/c even now I find myself saying the same things! Loved it!
