“This post is part of SoCS:” https://lindaghill.com/author/lindaghill/. She asks for a phrase you grew up with. My mum used to say if you fall down and break your leg don’t come running to me.
I mean, even as a child I knew, that if I did break my leg, how in the heck was I going to run anywhere. When I had children of my own, I said the exact same comment to them. It is like these weird sayings are passed down to each new generation.
I wish Mum was here to tell her great-granddaughter those sayings. She is such a little whirlwind at times. You always know when she has been in the room because there is a layer of toys trailing on the carpet.
She also loves to climb everywhere – sofa, walls, chairs – maybe I will have to tell her the same thing. If you don’t stop climbing and you fall, don’t run to me and cry.
