Tweets about Moms

OK, if you're a reader who's only into my Expatty material, do yourself a favo(u)r and keep reading. This is not about my children.
Can't remember what I was searching for on Twitter the other day, but I came across all these Tweets by kids (teens) about their mothers. They are bloody hilarious. My inevitable comments are in italics.

- "like I"d pass up free Chinese; my moms insane". (Bless)

- "my moms advice >>>". (Don't actually know if an east-pointing chevron is good or bad.)

- "why do moms think it's cool to take you to see people you don't remember?" (This one made me laugh out loud, or LOL as they say. I am guilty of doing this every summer with my kids.)

- "I love when my moms in a good mood". (Well we all know, happy mom = happy household. Take note everyone.)

-  (Hash-tagging like this often denotes Tweeting around a theme) - #Thingsthatgetmepissed -' my moms constantly calling my name to do something simple, when she coulda did it.' (What? You  mean like making your bed, letting the dog out, putting the trash out...I could go on.)

- #Thingsthatgetmepissed - when there's nothing to eat and my mom goes out and don't come back with food. (Coz lord knows, we wouldn't want to eat an apple or a yogurt.)

And my two favourites in reverse order. Drum roll please....

"I stole my moms chocolate. If I don't tweet ever again after tonight, she killed me". (And there's not a jury in the world that'd convict her.)

"This guy said '50 is the new 30'; mom told him '20 is the new 10".  (Bam! Sounds like my kinda woman.)

You couldn't make this stuff up!

PS. Kids - a small possessive apostrophe now and then wouldn't kill.


  1. I'm laughing. I may have to take my first look at twitter!

  2. I love it and also love your one below about kids and their parents. Perfect. I think you did marvellously well to leave the room in the face of the kid with his hand over his mother's mouth. My children would have expected to get bitten.

  3. LOL!

    This was great, 'Things Kids Say' is always a useful one for making a mom/mum smile--and now Twitter allows us to search endlessly for examples!

    As if we have time to search endlessly... now where's my chocolate?

  4. Your postscript: I was thinking that same thing but you know how I go on about grammar nazis on Twitter and FB. Can't be a hypocrite now can I? Can I? ;-)

    Great idea for a post Toni!

  5. These made me smile! Thanks for a fun post. And I loved the fact that you added that bit in about the apostrophe. *twitch*

  6. Yes, the apostrophes are grating, but I'm still writhing in agony over "...coulda did it.." Argh! You'd think after years of teaching adolescents it would no longer affect me, yet it still does...

    And the 'people you don't remember' comment is spot-on: we just did it to our kids yesterday - old friend passing through Seoul on business. Delightful for us: dull for the boys....

  7. Tehe! Thanks for the internal giggles.

    Don't you just love the absolute ingratitude of children? Not to mention their avoidance of capitalization and that pesky apostrophe.

  8. This was so funny, I love reading my nieces MSN updates, they say the funniest things. 20 is the 10 seems likea very quick witted Mammy. Great site.x

  9. Ah but, you've got to love them... or gotta love em as they'd say!

  10. This comment has been removed by the author.

  11. Possessive apostrophe? Its a kids right not to have to bother with those.

    Love those last two.

  12. Loved reading this!! My teen has said the "20 is the new 10 line" before and it made me larf!!


The more the merrier....
