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.
Mom: Are you having sex?
Me: Everyone’s white here, mom.
Mom: Are you using a condom?
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.
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*
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.
