Tribute to Moms & The Things They Say: 53 Loving Mother and Baby Animal Photos

May 9th, 2013 Permalink

You wouldn’t trade your mom cause there is nothing like a mother’s love . . . but do you remember some of the things she used to say as you were growing up? The type of things you swore that you’d never say to your kids? Moms are often overworked, under-appreciated, and at some point . . . finds herself saying things that her mother used to say. This seems to pass down from generation to generation, but despite the silly things that stressed out moms say, there is no one on Earth who will ever love you as unconditionally as your mother does. The number one thing all mothers say to their children is: I Love You! This is a tribute to moms for Mother’s Day! [53 Photos]

Everyone knows that if you mess with a mom’s kids, she is gonna mess you up. But most of us have heard the little sayings that moms say to kids. You’re sure you’ll never say such silly things, but when the kid becomes the mom, then she says those same sayings to her kids. It must be a mom thing. Photo #3 by Eberhard Brunner via Bit of Fun
