Famous Mom Quotes From the Past and Future

So how many of you remember the relentless quotes your mother use to spew at you and your siblings while you would roll your eyes and barely listen?  Then one day you wake up, 20 or 30 years later, and find yourself saying the exact same quotes you heard over and over as a kid and swore you would never repeat to your children.

With all of the illness and disease in our society that is preventable (mostly due to environmental toxins and the Standard American Diet) shouldn’t we come up with new quotes for our kids?  Here is a list of some of the quotes I remember my mother saying and a list of what I would like to change them to.

OLD:  Don’t run with scissors NEW: Run and exercise daily for good health

OLD: Look both ways before crossing the street NEW: Look at the labels before buying any food

OLD: Don’t talk to strangers NEW: Actually talk to people instead of texting all the time

OLD: Don’t go out in the cold with wet hair NEW: Don’t go out without taking your vitamins and eating your veggies so you boost your immune system

OLD: If everyone else jumped off a bridge would you? NEW: If everyone else drank energy drinks and soda would you?

OLD: Elbows off the table NEW: Cell phones off the table

OLD: Money doesn’t grow on trees NEW: Good food grows on trees

OLD: Don’t talk with your mouth full NEW: Can we finally sit at the table and talk at dinner tonight?

OLD: It’s all fun and games until someone pokes an eye out NEW: It’s all fun and games until you are the one diagnosed with cancer

OLD: Stop fighting or I will turn this car around NEW: Stop fighting, you may need your sister (brother) to care for you some day

OLD: Close that door, were you raised in a barn? NEW: Open the windows and breathe in the fresh air

OLD: Don’t eat yellow snow NEW: Eat more yellow, green and red vegetables

OLD: Shape up or ship out NEW: Shape up or be obese like 50% of Americans

OLD: Finish your dinner, there are kids starving in Africa NEW: Yes, you can eat as much fruits and veggies as you like

OLD: If it doesn’t kill you, it’ll make you stronger NEW: If it doesn’t kill you, it may give you horrible side effects

OLD: Life isn’t fair NEW: Life is wonderful, don’t take it for granted

I’m just saying….there is always some validity to old quotes but maybe they need some updating.
