Last week, we took a look at some iconic "mom catchphrases" that were shared on Reddit. These incredibly relatable stories sparked even MORE responses from our BuzzFeed Community that were just as mom-tastic! Here are a few of the very best:
1."When I would complain about not getting something I wanted, my mom would say, 'Well people in hell want ice water.'"
6."After I turned 20, whenever I was headed out with friends for a night on the town, she used to say: 'If you're not in bed by 12, come home.' (She said this IN FRONT of my friends, and this solidified my mother's legendary status)."
8."Whenever we'd refer to my mother as 'she' in front of her, she would immediately interrupt with: 'Who’s 'she?' the cats mother?!' Apparently, it was something my grandmother used to say to my mom, and now it’s definitely something I’ll pass on."
13."My mom would always say, 'You can only control yourself.' It's some amazing wisdom, and I recall it any time someone else annoys me. it helps me return to a calm space where I can control how I react to what's going on around me."
15."Whenever my mom calls me (or vice versa), she answers the phone by saying 'Oh helleeer' in the most nasally voice possible. Without fail. Every time. Often in rooms full of people. I'm not sure how this started, but I hope it never stops."
18."My mum has so many, but one of our favorites was when she was trying to tell my brother off — she meant to say, with a stern face, 'Stop that or I'll crack you!' But it came out 'Stop that or I'll quack you!' We all just absolutely roared and she's never lived it down. Bless her, she's amazing."
