Okay, I know there are a few of you that actually read from time to time.

Today is reader participation day!!  That mean YOU!

I want to know your favorite mom-isms, and the background to it.  Serious or humorous.  Borrowed, stolen or original.

I’ll share one that I picked up from a friend.

A friend has 3 girls, all older than mine.  During play dates I’d often hear her say, ‘people are more important than things‘ to her girls.  Sometimes they were fighting with each other over some toy, other times it was my child who was doing what babies do, swiping the toy they had.  I fell in love with this saying, and use it with my girls. It gets right to the point, and even the youngest of kids can understand it.
