Here is a some of the most common and popular momisms.

  • Don't make that face or it'll freeze in that position.
  • If I talked to my mother like you talk to me ......
  • Always change your underwear; you never know when you'll have an accident.
  • Be careful or you'll put your eye out.
  • What if everyone jumped off a cliff?  Would you do it, too?
  • You have enough dirt behind those ears to grow potatoes!

  • Don't eat those, they'll stump your growth.
  • If you don't each those, you'll stunt your growth.
