Here’s How our Moms Prepared us to be “Adults”

Mom’s always right. Mama said there’d be days like this. No one’s happy unless Mom’s happy.

Our moms taught us a lot to help us become the “adults” we are today. Yes, we might occasionally drink milk out of the carton or forget to put our dishes directly into the dishwasher, but our moms did teach us a thing or two (or three) about life.

So, to celebrate Mother’s Day and say thank you, here are our favorite Momisms from the Switch team...
