What I Owe My Mother

I saw this the other day in an e-mail and thought some of these were pretty funny, some were very true, some I'm sure are going to happen to me, and some I can still hear my Mom saying, especially her most famous "'I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.' 
For all of you old and new Moms out there I'm sure you can relate to a few of these.

My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE.
'If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.

My mother taught me RELIGION .
'You better pray that this will come out of the carpet.'

My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL
'If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!'

My mother taught me LOGIC .
'Because I said so, that's why.'

My mother taught me FORESIGHT.
'Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident.'

My mother taught me IRONY.
'Keep crying, and I'll give you something to cry about.'

My mother taught me about WEATHER ..
'This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it.'

My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY
'If I told you once, I've told you a million times. Don't exaggerate!'

My mother taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE .
'I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.'

My mother taught me about BEHAVIOUR MODIFICATION.

My mother taught me about ENVY.
'There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don't have wonderful parents like you do.'

My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION.
'Just wait until we get home.'

My mother taught me about RECEIVING .
'You are going to get it when you get home!'

My mother taught me MEDICAL SCIENCE.
'If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they are going to get stuck that way.'
My mother taught me HUMOUR .
'When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me..'

My mother taught me GENETICS.
'You're just like your father.'

My mother taught me about my ROOTS.
'Shut that door behind you. Do you think you were born in a barn?'

My mother taught me WISDOM.
'When you get to be my age, you'll understand.'
