Mom's speech

A mom (Anita Renfroe) has condensed everything a mom might say to her kids in 24 hours into less than 3 minutes - to the tune of the William Tell Overture

It's got subtitles (I don't know what the other language is). It's really funny.
You have to choose one thing your Mum says and add it as a comment.
What don't you mind? What gets on your nerves?
By the way, the full transcription is on the first comment.
Have fun
Your teacher

"The Mom Song"
Get up now Get up now Get up out of bed Wash your face Brush your teeth Comb your sleepyhead Here's your clothes and your shoes Hear the words I said Get up now! Get up and make your bed Are you hot? Are you cold? Are you wearing that? Where's your books and your lunch and your homework at? Grab your coat and gloves and your scarf and hat Don't forget! You gotta feed the cat Eat your breakfast, the experts tell us it's the most important meal of all Take your vitamins so you will grow up one day to be big and tall Please remember the orthodontist will be seeing you at 3 today Don't forget your piano lesson is this afternoon so you must play Don't shovel Chew slowly But hurry The bus is here Be careful Come back here Did you wash behind your ears? Play outside, don't play rough, will you just play fair? Be polite, make a friend, don't forget to share Work it out, wait your turn, never take a dare Get along! Don't make me come down there Clean your room, fold your clothes, put your stuff away Make your bed, do it now, do we have all day? Were you born in a barn? Would you like some hay? Can you even hear a word I say? Answer the phone! Get off the phone! Don't sit so close, turn it down, no texting at the table No more computer time tonight! Your iPod's my iPod if you don't listen up Where are you going and with whom and what time do you think you're coming home? Saying thank you, please, excuse me makes you welcome everywhere you roam You'll appreciate my wisdom someday when you're older and you're grown Can't wait till you have a couple little children of your own You'll thank me for the counsel I gave you so willingly But right now I thank you not to roll your eyes at me Close your mouth when you chew, would appreciate Take a bite maybe two of the stuff you hate Use your fork, do not burp or I'll set you straight Eat the food I put upon your plate Get an A, get the door, don't get smart with me Get a grip, get in here, I'll count to three Get a job, get a life, get a PHD Get a dose of, "I don't care who started it! You're grounded until you're 36" Get your story straight and tell the truth for once, for heaven's sake And if all your friends jumped off a cliff would you jump, too? If I've said it once, I've said at least a thousand times before That you're too old to act this way It must be your father's DNA Look at me when I am talking Stand up straighter when you walk A place for everything and everything must be in place Stop crying or I'll give you something real to cry about Oh! Brush your teeth, wash your face, put your PJs on Get in bed, get up here, say a prayer with mom Don't forget, I love you And tomorrow we will do this all again because a mom's work never ends You don't need the reason why Because, because, because, because I said so, I said so, I said so, I said so I'm the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom!! Ta da!!!

Commentaries like the style of this mother, I believe that all the mothers do at all time of the life of a teenager and often they have reason and are educations of life that give us.Get up and make your bed Are you hot? Are you cold? Are you wearing that? Where's your books and your lunch and your homework at? Grab your coat and gloves and your scarf and hat Don't forget!

I believe that all the mothers do commentaries of this type, as:
does the bed!!! Do not take very much!!! Do not return late!!! Walk to visiting your grandfather!!! Study!!! Give me a kiss before going away to sleeping!!!; that in this moment we cannot stand, but then give us tell that they serve us for our lives. The song is fabolous!!

My mom is in the habit of saying to me: " arrange yourself the bedroom ", " stretch the bed ", " wash your hands " or " did you wash your hands? ". My mom is my example of life, I try to follow her in what she says to me that it she should do, sometimes I make it deny or spend wrong moments but I do it without thinking it. This activity is very good and interesting, in some phrases it makes you think about some things. Leonardo Ladux 2º pol

It is a very real video that shows to a mother saying situations that appear in the house every day.
It seemed to me to be very interesting in order that it helps to realize the mothers.

hello!!!! teacher.... I am Florencia Arbe

Although I am alone at the weekend with my mum, that is enough, because.... She do not tell it to me in 24 hours but like is she!!! Tells it to me in less that 3 minutes.
she says me: Florencia gets up! You are going to be late, make your bed, feed well... ah... I forget! She says me all the time: TAKE YOUR VITAMINS...

Then I sometimes say : Mum!!! not annoy ...

The song is funny but when the mums says it.... It is not enjoyable!!

Kiss teacher ....... I see you later

Hi Susana!!!

___________Mom's speech____________
-Obligations:
.Wake up... It's time to go to school... (she does it in a nice way).
.Get up now... (she does this several times and shouting, and that make me beginning the day with a "really good! humour).
.Tidy your bed, please... (she doesn't tell me this on Mondays because i don't have enough time to do it, but she do it during the weekend)
.Come on, help me to lay the table, please... (during the weekend. Aclaration: my sister never lay the table.)

-Suggestions:
.Keep reading books, it's a good training for your brain...
.Don' leave for tomorrow what you can do today...
.Be a good person...
.Be polite with the major people...
.Eat healthy...

"MOM I LOVE YOU!! YOU ARE AN AMAZING PERSON!!"
I never say this phrase but I should do it more often...
