Because I said so.
I would ask,"what are you making for supper Ma"? She would say food, and I would say what kind of food and she would say GOOD FOOD! I do the same thing to my son.LOL

My mother spoke Yiddish (Jewish language) - which I don't speak. BUT - I say Jewish words to my dog, ie, I call her mammala (little mama); I never say paws to her - just footsala (little feet).
I have male roomies - and they rarely wear a jacket (even at night) - and I'd say, "I think u should take ur jacket". They're in their 20s-30s. They just look at me funny.
A few years ago, one of my roomies was having problems with his girlfriend. I asked what his mother says about their relationship - and he said, "my mother never gets involved in my relationship". I said, "she needs to since u didn't have a dad to raise u". He put his head down - in shock. I then told him that he needs to break up with her - as she has major problems --- and he did. Afterward, I realized that's what my mother would have told me.

There were many-but the ones she continued to use until the day she ceased to be and I/we say in my family required; walking fast, spitting, rubbing something, going poddy and clean "underpants."
Mom, I cant wear this it's wrinkled-
Walk fast no one will notice.
Mom I can't go I need a bath-
Spit on it, you'll be fine-walk fast, no one will notice-do you have clean "underpants" on?
Owww, owww, owww...I stubbed my toe-
Rub it-Rub it!
The all time favorite-
Mom, I have a stomach ache-

Growing up I truly believed she did have eyes in the back of her head and that there was a secret room in our house where Christmas gifts were stored. Even after the truth of Santa came out we still had the big items like a ping pong table laid out under the tree Christmas morning. We still never could find anything, she was very good. Finally as a parent myself being inventive to where to hide things I knew there was no secret room.
I also have found now I sound like her by not saying anything at all to my son. When I started my own family I could tell when Mom was keeping her mouth closed and only listening sometimes. I find myself doing the same thing with my mid-30's son. I sometimes do not agree with his decisions and such but like my Mom I just listen while still be supportive quietly.
