Things My Mom Would Never Say
What’s your mother like? What kind of a person is she? Kind? Mean? Honest? A liar? Maybe shy or frank? Frank . . . this is what a mother usually seems in the eyes of their children, or perhaps, this is because we want them to be. Why? Because our mother could tell us things that we want to hear or would make us happy with confidence and sincerity. For example, you got a new haircut and everyone makes fun of you except your mom, instead she will look straight into your eyes and probably tell you, “Honey, you look great”.

A mother could easily tell her children “I love you” without even hesitating, they could even say it to us during their slumber...
