40 thoughts on “When Your Momma Points

  1. 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. ❀


  2. 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?


  3. 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!!”


  4. 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 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™‚
