Be sure to refill those ice trays.

Quit slamming the screen door when you go out !

Be sure and pull the windows down when you leave, it looks like a shower is coming up.

Don't forget to wind the clock before you go to bed.

Wash your feet before you go to bed, you've been playing outside all day barefooted.

You have torn the knees out of that pair of pants so many times there is nothing left to put a patch on.

Don't you go outside with your school clothes on!

Take that empty bottle to the store with you so you won't have to pay a deposit on another one.

Put a dish towel over the cake so the flies won't get on it.

Quit jumping on the floor! I have a cake in the oven and you are going to make it fall if you don't quit!

There's a dollar in my purse, get 5 gallons of gas when you go to town.

Open the back door and see if we can get a breeze through here, it is getting hot.

You can walk to the store; it won't hurt you to get some exercise.

If you pull that stunt again, I am going to wear you out!

Don't lose that button; I won't be able to sew it back on.

I'll knock you into next week if you mouth off to me again!

Don't sit so close to the tv-you're going to go blind!

Be sure to leave that bathwater for your brother to use and don't use up all of the soap!

No! I don't have 10 cents for you to go to the show. Do you think money grows on trees?

Eat those turnips, they'll make you big and strong like your daddy.

That dog is NOT coming in this house! I don't care how cold it is out there, dogs don't stay in the house.

Hush your mouth! I don't want to hear words like Dad Gummit! I'll wash your mouth out with soap!

It is time for your system to be cleaned out. I am going to give you a dose of castor oil tonight.

If you get a spanking in school and I find out about it, you'll get another one when you get home.

Quit crossing your eyes! They will get stuck that way!

It's: 'Yes Ma'am!' and 'No Ma'am!' to me, young man, and don't you forget it!

Hurry up and finish drying the dishes so we can go "ketch sum lightnin bugs and pit 'em in a jar".

Y'all come back now, ya hear.


I truly regret some of you whippersnappers are so young that you missed out on most of these great memories!!
