Momisms – Things Our Moms Say

Moms have a way with words. Throughout our lives, they’ve shared the wisdom, kindness, and humor of being a mother. Relationship, life, fashion, or otherwise, your mom probably had advice or go-to phrases to share. Do you ever find yourself repeating the things your mother told you?
