Saying That Our Parents Used to Tell Us

I used to call these little ditties ‘Dadisms’ – but most of them I find myself saying… just like my Mum…

  • ‘This will hurt me more than it will hurt you.”  – What does that even mean?
  • ‘Money doesn’t grow on trees you know’
  • ‘Because I said so’
  • ‘Go ask your Father’
  • ‘You’ll live’
  • ‘Close the door – were you born in a tent’
  • ‘Got 50c – call someone that cares’
  • ‘Go play in the traffic’
  • ‘If I had a dollar for every time **insert something here** – I’d be RICH’
  • ‘Do you think I was born yesterday?’
  • ‘I don’t THINK so’
  • ‘You can, but you may not’
  • ‘Don’t you make me stop this car…..’
  • “When you grow up, I hope you have a child just like YOU’
  • ‘Get your elbows OFF the table’
  • ‘Use your knife and fork!’
  • ‘My house, my rules’
  • ‘A little dirt never hurt anyone’
  • ‘Stop that crying or I’ll give you something to cry about’ – I use this – often lol
  • ‘I’m just resting my eyes’
  • ‘Wipe that smile off your face!’

What Dadism’s did your parents spruke?
