Product description...

“And Mother Used to Say....” Words to Live By that “ain’t never lied,” is a compilation of the “common sense” language and wisdom spoken by grandmothers, mothers and aunties from generations of old.


“And Mother Used to Say…..” Words to Live By that ain’t never lied,” is different from the average book of clichés, adages or idioms. It is a book of the “common sense” language and wisdom spoken by grandmothers, mothers and aunties from generations of old. It is a clever, humorous and distinctive showcase of the dialect and culture of mothers from the DMV, D.C., Maryland and Virginia area and a journey back into time. Women and men will shake their heads, slap their knees, and nod in agreement to sayings such as “A hard head makes a soft behind,” as in, learn the lesson the first time around before you fall on you’re a*# the second go round. It’s a feel good, easy read that definitely aims to please! Now go on and pick up a copy or two because as the saying goes; “If ya think long, ya think wrong.” The book is so funny and so true . I have heard so much of these same things from my mom. You will go far with this book. “We all need to be reminded about the good old days and learn from what our parents used to teach,” Rochelle, Salon 804.
