Do you remember hearing your parents say things like “you’d better stop crying, or I’ll give you something to cry about” among other things? Growing up, we heard a lot of sayings that our parents would repeat over and over again, often sounding like a broken record. As a child, we didn’t always know what they meant when they gave a speech that included a few sayings that they undoubtedly heard from their own parents when they were children.
If you were ever confused about what some of the sayings meant… look no further!
This woman, not only shares most of the old sayings that we’ve all heard from our parents, but she also finds a hilarious way of translating those sayings for our understanding. You will not only laugh at being reminded of the crazy things your parents used to say to you, but you will crack up at how this woman explains the meaning behind the sayings themselves.
It’s great to reminisce of the days when we were children and only responsible for doing a few chores around the house. Sometimes, as adults, we often miss being told what to do by parents who seemingly had all the answers. At the time of our childhood, we only wanted to grow up and live our lives independent of our parents. The funny thing is that the moment we became adults, we began to understand the reason behind the many lessons that our parents tried so hard to teach.
Take a moment to sit back and prepare yourself for a travel back in time. When you hear these funny sayings repeated, you will feel the old nostalgia of staring into the eyes of your parents while they spewed words that meant very little to you at the time. More than likely, you are now saying most of the phrases to your own children. Life is funny like that.
