Silly Sunday

Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

My Parents Taught Me:

Most of our generation were HOME SCHOOLED in many ways.

My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE.

“If you’re going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.”

My mother taught me RELIGION.

“You better pray that will come out of the carpet.”

My father taught me about TIME TRAVEL.

“If you don’t straighten up, I’m going to knock you into the middle of next week!”

My father taught me LOGIC.

“Because I said so, that’s why.”

My mother taught me MORE LOGIC .

“If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you’re not going to the store with me.”

My mother taught me FORESIGHT.

“Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you’re in an accident.”

My father taught me IRONY.

“Keep crying, and I’ll give you something to cry about.”

My mother taught me about the science of OSMOSIS.

“Shut your mouth and eat your supper.”

My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM.

“Just you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!”

My mother taught me about STAMINA.

“You’ll sit there until all that spinach is gone.”

My mother taught me about WEATHER.

“This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it.”

My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY.

“If I told you once, I’ve told you a million times, don’t exaggerate!”

    Oh yes, I remember my home schooling days….lol Back then that's the only kind of home schooling there was.

      We had the same background didn't we. πŸ™‚

    LOL – the logic one is my favorite, as it is the one I still use today πŸ™‚

    • October 16, 2016 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm

      Things were different back then. πŸ™‚

    Oh I remember some of those things coming from my father.That was such good home schooling.Sandee, you and Zane have a fine day.

    • October 16, 2016 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm

      Yep, all the parents sounded the same back then. πŸ™‚

    I went through such home schooling too! I think most mothers and fathers around the world gave almost the same kind of home schooling to their children!

    • October 16, 2016 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm

      Yes they did Nancy. You had better listen too. πŸ™‚

    Hi Sandee, some great lessons there and a fair few I was taught myself. I sat many a time staring defiantly at my dinner, and it never won, not once. Not even when I was given it again for breakfast the next morning. I wish I had that sort of stamina when faced with a slice of chocolate cake.


    • October 16, 2016 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm

      Me too Debbie, me too. Or ice cream in my case. πŸ™‚

  6. October 16, 2016 4:09 am at 4:09 am

    Heeheehee! My parents taught me, too. Have a blessed and beautiful Sunday!

    • October 16, 2016 3:11 pm at 3:11 pm

      You have a blessed and beautiful Sunday too. You so deserve the very best of everything. πŸ™‚

    All of the above, plus we learned about starving children in China.

    • October 16, 2016 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm

      Oh I remember that one. I never said it out loud, but I thought it many times. Why don't you send this slop to them then. I knew better than to say that. πŸ™‚

  8. October 16, 2016 6:10 am at 6:10 am

    Happy Sunday!!

    • October 16, 2016 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm

      And a happy Sunday to you too Michelle. πŸ™‚

  9. October 16, 2016 6:17 am at 6:17 am

    Those are great πŸ™‚

    • October 16, 2016 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm

      Yes they are. Thank you. πŸ™‚

    lol I was taught these lessons too. Not sure when my generation decided it would be ideal to stop teaching these things… but you can sure feel the reprecussions in the schools (where I am at every single day). Of course there are exceptions, but disrespect seems to be a norm now. I don't remember it being that way in my school days.

    • October 16, 2016 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm

      We would have had our butts tanned if we acted like some kids today. You know what's going on in their house. πŸ™‚

  11. October 16, 2016 7:16 am at 7:16 am

    My parents taught me those same lessons. I guess that' why they call me "old school" now.

    • October 16, 2016 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm

      I guess so, but their parents taught them those same things too. πŸ™‚

    SQUAAAAAWK! A member of the household's mother would have been 100 last Friday. She went to the bridge at 94. You know about parrots and longevity.

    • October 16, 2016 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm

      I do know about parrots and longevity. πŸ™‚

    So often we find ourselves saying those same things to our kids…well, not all of them

    • October 16, 2016 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm

      Many of them though. There is the one about walking to school barefooted, uphill both ways and in the snow. Remember that one? πŸ™‚

  14. October 16, 2016 8:01 am at 8:01 am

    So I think I am this same kind of mother! I pretty much checked every item of on this list. It wasn't meant to be a bucket list though, right? πŸ™‚

    • October 16, 2016 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm

      You are a good mom. Not to worry. πŸ™‚

  15. October 16, 2016 8:30 am at 8:30 am

    one of my Mums favourites was "if "Jane" told you to stick your had in the oven would you?"

    Im pretty sure I will end up saying the same things to my one πŸ™‚

    as they say its the circle of parenthood πŸ™‚

    • October 16, 2016 3:20 pm at 3:20 pm

      I remember that one too. All the time I heard that one. Then I used it too. Bugger. πŸ™‚

    The only way to prevent your child from being brain-washed by a stranger is to home school them and brain-wash them yourself. That's what its come down too!

    • October 16, 2016 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm

      Yes, we do a better job of brain-washing. πŸ™‚

    Laughing…this is to funny and I hate to admit it, but these phrases are all too familiar. Especially this one: "Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident." Great post, Sandee, great post!

    "Big hugs"

    Have a wonderful Sunday.

    • October 16, 2016 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm

      Yes, I've heard that one more than once. Parents are parents. It's the way of things. πŸ™‚

  18. October 16, 2016 5:15 pm at 5:15 pm

    hee hee hee….I actually heard a mother on a plane use the Hypocrisy line! Seriously- would I kid you? Have a lovely day!

    • October 17, 2016 7:48 am at 7:48 am

      No you wouldn't kid me. I believe you. You have a lovely day too. πŸ™‚

  19. October 16, 2016 7:45 pm at 7:45 pm

    These are great, Sandee! Thanks so much for sharing! πŸ™‚

    • October 17, 2016 7:49 am at 7:49 am

      You're most welcome Linda. πŸ™‚

  20. October 16, 2016 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm

    my parents taught me everything and i miss them and all their wisdom

    • October 17, 2016 7:49 am at 7:49 am

      I miss my mother the most. She was very special. πŸ™‚

  21. October 16, 2016 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm

    Those are so funny. Whenever I see these sorts of posts I really wish I had better parents. Mine were pretty abusive and they didn't really teach me much.

    • October 17, 2016 7:49 am at 7:49 am

      My father was very abusive. I know where you're coming from. πŸ™‚

  22. October 17, 2016 10:21 am at 10:21 am

    The best way to learn.

    • October 18, 2016 8:08 am at 8:08 am

      The very best way to learn Binky. πŸ™‚

  23. October 17, 2016 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm

    Sounds like I got an old fashioned education. Much different from the one my girls grew up with.

    • October 18, 2016 8:08 am at 8:08 am

      As long as they show respect then you've done a good job. Knowing you they do show respect. πŸ™‚

  24. October 17, 2016 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm

    Oh my goodness did I ever hear and learn every one of those! Haha. And have even said a few to my own kiddos!

    Big hugs, honey…

    • October 18, 2016 8:08 am at 8:08 am

      It was the way of things long ago. Yes it was. πŸ™‚
