Mama Said…

Things my mother would say… Check back often.

Mom always has something interesting or funny to say.


“Life will teach you things you can’t learn in the class room.”

(On life lessons)

“Ever had the right string but the wrong yo-yo?”

(Being Confused)

“He who never rings his own bell may never have his bell rung. Ring a ding, ding!”

(Self Esteem)

“Y’all could have told me I was out my tree and in someone else’s.”

(Being on medication that makes you hallucinate)

“Life ain’t no easy road to hoe…”

(How hard life is)

“I’m gonna do you like the farmer did the tater, I’m gonna plant you now and dig you later.”

(When getting off the phone)

“If you see something you aint seen before, throw a rock at it!”

(Being Naked)

“Every tub has to sit on its own bottom”

(Being Responsible)

“When you feel like you can’t hold on any longer, tie a knot at the end of the rope and hang on a lil while longer.”


“I’m too old of a cat to be called a kitten. You gotta get up real early or don’t go to sleep at all to pull a fast one on me.”

“I don’t play nothing. I had a piano once and I aint even play that.”

“You get by but you don’t get away.”

“Stand up, Speak up, Shut up and Sat Down!”

“A poor frog don’t praise his own pond.”
