So, for Mother’s Day, we’re soliciting mom quotes! Share yours using the hashtag #momtoldme or leave a comment below.
Here are some of our staffers’ mom stories to help get you started:
“There’s a lid for every pot” — Everyone has a mate no matter how odd they might seem, according to the mother of senior social media producer TJ Ortenzi.
“How ya be?” — That’s how engagement producer Bethonie Butler’s grandmother answers the phone.
“I’ve got enough friends. I’m your mother.” — Newsroom administrator Alma Gill’s mom would share this with her.
Politics social media editor Natalie Jennings says the worst thing her mom can say about someone or something is a one-word phrase: “tacky.”
Finally, consider this interaction between engagement producer Haley Crum and her mom:
Mom: I heard you’re sick. LOL.
Haley: Do you know what LOL means?
Mom: Lots of love.
