My mother taught me that sometime you just need to mentally check out for a bit (and it won't kill your kids):

"I'm not your mom. I'm Prudence Potts. Your mom had to leave for a bit and she told me to tell you to keep yourself busy until she gets back."

My Mother taught me that children should be heard but not seen.

So I hid in a cupboard and shouted a lot.










Years later I realised that I had misheard her.

(OOh! I've found a new sig line)

My mother taught me to look out for bears and boys who mothers taught them to think that they are the smartest, most talented, and good looking bears and boys.

Believe me you don't want that woman for a mother in law, said mom.

My Mother taught me that (-i)2 can be simplified. (-i)2 = (-1*i)2 = (-1)2 * i2 = 1 * (-1) = -1.

She then lit her pipe, dusted the chalk off her jacket and went to play cricket.
