How true, how true! I taught them to my kids and they have passed it on to theirs. I wonder if the next generation will know these GREAT TRUTHS!

Mother's University - you'll never find anything like it in this world. It seems that all mothers have been given the same 'lesson plans' to teach their children.
My favorite was: My mother taught me that the world is full ALIENs, she had eyes behind her head. "Stop whatever you're doing, I can see you!"

This is so funny and like everyone else, I grew up with this same logic and in turn said the same things to my kids. Thanks for the laugh.

Hilarious!! I can recall that my Mom taught me some of those and I taught my kids some, too.
