Like My Mother Always Said...: Wise Words, Witty Warnings, and Odd Advice We Never Forget

Author(s): Erin McHugh

Gift & Humour

"Don't do as I do. Do as I say to do. We're building your character." "Don't be impressed by a man's car - he may be living in it." "When poverty comes in the window, love goes out the door." Countess chestnuts like these are uttered by mothers far and wide -- and every child, has his or her own stories. You can't get away from them because, everybody has a mother. And now Erin McHugh has collected scores of them for Like My Mother Always Said from all kinds of "kids"--young and old, ordinary and famous. Including quip-length to two-to-three-paragraph tales, the book is divided up into all the kinds of wise and nutty information we garner from our mothers on subjects such as Life, Love Marriage, Work, Money, Free Advice, The Opposite Sex, Bad Behavior, Growing Up Getting Old and Family Motherhood.
