What Kids Say to Their Moms

Updated on May 14, 2012

A daughter's Mother's Day message

A Mother's Day message my older daughter wrote for me when she was just a little girl.

And I've also added a few on "what kids say to their dads" because it wouldn't just be fair for the moms; so here goes...

How often do we teach them things, present ourselves as the better experienced one, but feeling sheepish about understanding technical terms and functions; then we end up asking them for answers? How often do we need their technical assistance and feel so dumb? How often do our kids tell us "google it"? How often do our kids respond to us and say "You are so annoying"? How often do they observe us and correct us? How often do we tell them what to do but they end up telling us what to do? Our children, no matter what, they are the foundation of our happiness, our determination to function to reach our goals and their goals, our gift from God to make us whole and to be able to serve our role as parents for their sake. Our child is our heart; our soul. Without them, who will look after us? Without them, who's going to change us and remind us that we are the models they look up to?

Kids these days, they seem to be smarter than their parents.

Of course, why not? They are the new generation. They adapt quickly with technology. They are fresh with education. And so we say and they answer...

"Sweetheart, what does RSS Feed mean?" "And how do you do this? Can you come help me?" "Mom, just google it!"

"How do you upload these pictures to my computer?" "Dad, it's not upload, it's called DOWNLOAD."

"This is how my dad sings FROSTY THE SNOWMAN...

Prosty da snowman was a jolly haffy soul. Wid a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes med out ofp coal. Prosty the snowman is a pairy tale dey say. He was made out ofp snow but the children know how he came to lipe one day."

"Hahahah and it's caught on video, too." "Don't embarrass your dad like that." "Dad, it's nothing!"

"I want to watch a movie. The X-box is not working." "Is the disk inside the X-box?" "Yes, it is. But it does not play." "Are you using the X-box controller?" "No, the t.v. remote." "Geez mom! No wonder."

"How come your pics on your cell are so nice? Where did you get that?" "It's Instagram." "What?" "It's an application for iPhones." "Can I have the same thing on my phone?" "No. I just said it's for iPhones that means it's specifically for an iPhone only. Is your phone an iPhone? UGH!"

"How do you make this website work? I can't understand this." "Google it mom, and you'll know." "I did so many times and it doesn't seem to work." "Go to YouTube." "I did and even checked on other people's instructions. Can you please just sit here and show me?" "Geezzzzzz MOMMMMM! You wouldn't know how if you don't try harder. Just GOOGLE more!"

≈ ♥ ≈

Kids these days, they certainly know what they are talking about.

Of course, why not? They are first on updates because they live in the information age. Their television, stereo and computer run together. They are reminded to conserve energy but they do at other times value about economizing. And so they tell us...

"Mom, did you know about....? It's in the news." "MOM, I'm talking to you, you're not even listening."

My daughter calling me from her mobile phone and her avatar and name are displayed on my screen and I picked up: "Hi Sweetheart!" "Mom, I love you." "I love you too, what's up? Why are you calling me?" "I lost my phone. I love you." "WHAT?! That's not the first time this happened. It's either lost or down the toilet." "Mom, I'm calling from my phone. YOU are so GULLIBLE!"

"Why are all three electronics running? Turn the others off." "It's okay, dad." "No, it's not okay." "Dad, leave us alone and close the door!"

"Why did you leave the t.v. on overnight?" "Because I am scared of the dark." "How about your night light?" "Ugh! Close the door and get out of my room."

"Mom, you don't have to wash dishes each time." "But I want to keep the kitchen counter clean." "But mom, you can just soak them until there is enough. You're just wasting water."

≈ ♥ ≈

We teach our kids the right practices in our common activities, but are we setting a good example?

They are smart and they do remember what they have been told. We don't want them to forget what we have taught them, but we could go astray, neglect, break our own rules. They are around to watch their parents and now become our advisers. And they comment on us...

"Oh, I like this. I want it." "Mom, you don't need that. Put it back."

"This one I like, I'll buy it." "Mom, think, mom. Where are you gonna put that? Are you really gonna use it?"

"Mom, you said you have no money and you keep buying unnecessary things. You don't really need those. You need me and my sister to go shopping with you. We can save you money. Mom, I just saved you 10 dollars!!! Hahah!"

"Dad, you don't look cool with that huge Abercrombie logo shirt. You are not young any more. Dad, and an American Eagle on your chest, same thing! You can buy me a Hollister instead, dad." :)

"Mom, put on some shirt! Stop walking around naked."

"Dad, stripes shirt don't match with a camouflage shorts. Go change."

"Mom, can you knock first?"

"Mom, can my friend come over?" "Friend who?" "Him." "You have a boyfriend?" "He is my friend." "I know, a boy friend." *Giggle* "But mom, can he come over, pleassseee?" "Does your dad know?" "NO, just you...and don't tell dad."

"Yew mom, that's too fattening. Gross. That's not healthy."

"Mom, you should not be eating pasta with rice! Spaghetti with rice. Macaroni salad with rice. Pasta shells with rice. Alfredo pasta with rice. Mom, they're all carbo."

"Sweetheart, can you wash the dishes please." "I will do it later, mom." "Can you please just do it now?" "Mom, later. I'll do it later, promise." Later came and nothing's done. "So, what now? I've done the dishes myself. You never do anything I ask you to do." "Mom, I said I'll do it later, but you still do it. Umm because, I know you'll do it anyway, hahahaha!"

"Remember to feed the dog and give him fresh water and don't forget to turn off the stove." "Mom, how many times do you have to tell us that?" "Just a friendly reminder." "Mom, you can go now. You're so annoying."

"Pray. Always say a prayer before you sleep." "MOMMY! and close the door!!"

"Talk to your guardian angel when you leave the house." "Geez, mom! BYE!"

≈ ♥ ≈

Moms asking their kids questions, do our kids find them annoying and irritating?

Of course they do or this hub will not exist. Our questions dear moms (and dads), are simply annoyance and considered pestering by our kids. With all the daily "pesky" exchange of words, you bet our children still and will always love us. We know they care.

"Mom, can my friends sleepover?" "My mom said yes, and don't worry about food, she can cook for us." "MOM, they are coming over!" "What's for dinner later?" "I love youuuuuuuu!"

"Mom, what's for breakfast? My friends are still asleep but they will wake up when they smell what you're cooking." "YES! Thanks mom for the SPAM!"

"Mom, can I open this pizza box?" "YES! Thanks mom! I love you!"

"Wow, mom cleaned up my room! I love you, mom!"

"Mom, can you include my laundry? Thanks mom! I love you!"

"Mom, what's for dinner? Can you make me the chicken cream soup too? Thanks mom, I love you."

"That's enough or I'll throw you out of the window." "Hahaha, I like to tease my mom. I know she can't do that."

"My friends say: Your MOM is cool!"

"My mom is fashionable." "I like what you're wearing mom. You look good, mom." "No, mom. That's too much. Take it off."

"Mom, I bought this for your birthday! Guess how much I spent for the boots and jacket? Nooo, know I have no money, so guess lower..." "How much then?" "THREE DOLLARS!" "Happy Birthday, Mom! I love you!"

"I love you mom." "You're the best mom I've ever had."

      I remember on how annoying my mom used to be when she ask me to teach her stuff from facebook, twitter, foursquare, and so on. But I know that's her only way now to 'keep an eye' and make sure her kids are 'still on track'.. :)

      I don't have kids, but I take a certain amount of sisterly pleasure when my niece says these things to my older brother, who once upon a childhood teased the life out of me! Funny and wonderful list! :)

      Hi Alex, watch out when you are ready to have your own kids, hahah! They grow up fast and catches up with all cleverness and become very witty because they think they know everything. You will feel like saying, "Hey little smart child, I did not bring you up this way." Hehe! Big smiles!

      Hello Nomascus concolor! It's nice for you to stop by. I now know from you that Mother's Day is celebrated at different months. I thought they are celebrated all at the same date. Your mom is lucky enough to have two Mother's Days this year then. :)

      Thank you very much and I wish you the same.

      Thanks Cris! I know huh, the video is sad but it truly sends out a message to the children. In reality, as we age, we are slowly at loss of other capabilities, what more when we reach the stage of becoming curved and fragile, we cannot certainly tell if we could live a 100 years old and still have a good eyesight, memory still kicking as well as our legs kicking. Cheers to you Cris! Yes my daughters made sure they were back on Mother's Day evening after church and enjoyed our baking of homemade personal sized pizzas for everyone at 11 in the night. :) Have a nice day!

      That's very true, teaches12345! My older daughter most often times would say "I'm bored, there is nothing to do here." and then I reply to her, "Of course there is so much to do, for one, tidy up your bedroom, two, do your laundry." But at least we know they still love us back each time our kids say, "I love you, mom!"

      I remember hearing some of these phrases. I hear my grandkids saying "it's so annoying" and I'm bored"... sigh. My favorites are, "you make the best spanish rice" and "I love you!". Kids, they don't change much in expressions through the years. Thanks for the enjoyable read, especially on Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day!

      True. One of Kurt's memorandum "Don't do things that I can do for myself. It makes me feel like a baby, and I may continue to put you in my service". Generation Z
