I was folding wash today and saw one of my daughter’s shirts that made me laugh. It said on it, “Stay Positive. Just Chill!” I laughed because earlier today I had repeated that last line to her, “Just Chill!”
I am not sure what all things my children will remember me telling them, but I know one thing I often tell them, and sometimes, even my husband, is to “just Chill!” or “take a Chill pill!” Perhaps I should ask them what other things I often say, could be enlightening. 🙂
I remember my Mom often saying, “Do the job right the first time and you won’t have to repeat it!” Such as when we were teens and tried to do the household chores very quickly, which was when the “Haste makes waste’ quote came up as well.
My Dad often said, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket and don’t count your chickens before they hatch!”
What sayings do you remember hearing a lot while growing up or what ones have you often repeated to your children! Feel free to share in the comments below!
