I received several more motherisms from readers to add to my list. How many of these did your mother use? If you're a mum, are you using them too? I confess, I have too.

Why? Because I said so, that's why!
Don't make me come in there!
Just wait until your father gets home.
Just scrape off the burnt part, it's still good.
I hope someday you have kids just like you.
If everyone else jumped off a cliff, would you
   do it too?
Watching TV too close makes you go blind.
Because I'm your mother!
Would it hurt to call me once in a while?
You'd forget your head if it wasn't attached

Countdown to Mother's Day


Honouring Mums
Who Have Died

Trees For Mum program is a wonderful way to create a growing legacy for mums who have died and those still with us. They help you to plant a commemorative native tree in your mum's honour. Over 20,000 people participated at over 100 planting sites across Australia. Trees for Mum was started in 2002 by Deena Raphael and Lauren Adlam who lost their mums to cancer.



Don't roll your eyes at me
You'll understand when you're older
