When Your Momma Points

No matter where you go in this world

There are some things that transcend borders, cultures and distance.

Mom motions is one of them.

When your momma points

You best be getting your hind end

To that spot.

    Hahaha, my mum wasn’t a pointer either. She just had this mama glare, and when she did that you KNEW you better get over there pronto or it was going down! Aww, bless our mamas and all the mamas out there. ❀


  4. Hahaha! Oh, that finger thing! She means business! LOL!


  5. My mom wasn’t a pointer. She did it with looks. lol πŸ™‚


  6. I tried to comment and it said it didn’t take then I repeated it and it said duplicate comment?! Hmmm. Not sure if you got my first one saying my mom wasn’t a pointer, she did it with looks. lol

    adding this to my list of favs. So true!!!


  12. All Mom had to do was give THAT look. I don’t like pointers and I really dislike hearing parents count 1 – 2 – 3. Do you suppose that’s the reason so many U.S. children have an aversion to math?

    The talking between clenched teeth was something I did, sometimes that certain look, my black friends say it’s a “whammy look.” (Darryl and Marshall.)
    I didn’t point but I did have a Dad who did this and it meant: “Get over here, Right now!!”


  14. That is mommy thing, I think. I do it with Odin, when I ask him to deliver his ball, when we are playing. I think, that I mostly used my eyes to talk in this way to my kids, but maybe they remember different πŸ™‚

    I can’t remember that I was pointed at … as a kid, but there were other punishments that were a lot worst. Still, I don’t like pointers.


    • I never pointed ‘at’ the kids. If they were misbehaving and I was telling them to stop or to come and see me I would point down, like in the picture, and say “right here” so I could talk to them. πŸ™‚

    Yes! That’s a posture and an expression that everyone can read! πŸ™‚


  17. So true, and the funny thing is we all turn into our mom’s in one way or another.
