These are some of the lessons we learned from our mothers:
1.  Mother taught me to appreciate a JOB WELL DONE:
     "If you're going to kill each other, do it outside, because I just finished  cleaning."
2.  Our mothers taught us RELIGION:
     "You'd better pray that comes out of the carpet."
3.  They taught us about LOGIC.
     "Because I said so, that's why."
4.  They taught us another lesson about LOGIC:
     " If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you're not going with me to the store."
5.  She taught us about IRONY:
     "Keep crying, and I'll give you something to cry about."
6.  My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM: 
     "Will you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!"
7.  They taught us about STAMINA:
     "You'll sit there until all that spinach is gone."
8.  They taught us about WEATHER:
     "This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it."
9.  Mine taught me about HYPOCRISY:
    "If I've told you once, I've told you a million times; don't exaggerate."
10.  They taught us about the CIRCLE OF LIFE:
      "I brought you into this world and I can take you out."
11.  She taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION:
      "Stop acting like your father."
12.  They taught us about WISDOM:
      "When you get to be my age, you'll understand."
13.  And one of my favorites about JUSTICE:
      "One day you'll have kids, and I hope they turn out just like you!"
