"Things My Momma Said to Me" (Acrostic)

Make your bed

Open your ears and close your mouth

Time to eat

Hold your horses

Elbows off the table

Read the instructions

Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about


Don't forget my kiss goodbye

Always remember, I love you

You are my Strawberry JAM

    A super acrostic! One of my favorite forms! The words resonate loud and clear! Very relatable! A very Happy Mother’s Day to your mom!

        Oh how absolutely adorable - yes got me too "emotionally"! I heard quite a few of these from my own mother... ha ha....especially the "stop crying" line........
