What NJ moms used to always say, and still do
We're doing a contest here on New Jersey 101.5 called "Mamma Used To Say" where you can win sparkling diamond stud earrings worth $2500.00.
Jersey Moms are different from other moms because Jersey Moms started off as Jersey girls, and as Jerseys guys know, or should know, you don't mess with them; or as my mother would say to me repeatedly, "Do as I say, and not as I do." It's funny hearing my wife say that to my kids.
Many of the things your mother used to say were probably said to her when she was a little girl. I talked about this on my New Jersey 101.5 show and social media, and here are some of the things our mothers used to say. Sound familiar?

Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about

If you go outside making that face, it’ll freeze like that.

I’m gonna wash your mouth out with soap
