#12: GENETICS::
"You're just like your Father"

#13: JUSTICE::

I'm sure there are a million more of these "Mommilies" out there. These are just a few {and I mean a few} of the many mommilies that have helped me to be a productive, upstanding, adult citizen!

Help me out, PLEASE! Tell me about the Mommilies that you were raised hearing. Want to post a list of your own {I'll be sure to read that!}, here's where you can do that.

ENJOY!

P.S.:: Thanks Mom!!!

Here's some of your 'Mommilies'
