Happy Mother’s Day!  As you think about how you want to make this day special for your mom – be it a card, a morning breakfast, or a last minute dash to the department store for that perfect (and forgotten) gift – we all know that we need to make this day special for the all the special moments our moms grace us with each and every day. With that in mind, I put together a list of some of the most memorable sayings my mother has said to me.


  1. On sex…

Mom: Are you having sex?

Me: Everyone’s white here, mom.

Mom: Are you using a condom?


  1. On life after college…

Me: You know what? I’ve been thinking about it – I think I want to live in the Bronx when I grow up.

Mom: The Bronx is dangerous.

Me: Mom, our home is Baltimore... Baltimore’s dangerous.


  1. On unconditional support…

Mom: I want you to know that no matter what decision you make I’ll support you. You know, I’m always here for you.

Me: Aww, thanks mom.

Mom: I also want you to know that if you don’t choose Cornell, you’re making the wrong decision.

Me: *blinks uncontrollably*


  1. On careers…

Me: I think I want to become a doctor.

Mom: Finally, you’ve made a good choice.


As you went through this list, I hope you remembered all the memorable and funny moments you’ve had with your mom and realized, on Mother’s Day and all days, how lucky you are to have her.
